    Bought a used Lumia 930 and now the power key is broken. It is just loose and has lost all function. Is there any way to fix it by myself or do I need to leave it for repair? I have read on the internet about the key losing its "bounce", but not any good solution. I didnt get any receipt, but the hardware warranty should still work in some cases. The cost to repair it without warrany is approximately 40-50 dollars, not really a big deal but could use the money for more fun things...

    How is it broken? Is it depressed all the way? Does it still depress, and click, but there is no response from the phone?

    I would suspect it to be one of a coupe of things: the little plastic doodad behind the key that holds it in place, and gives it spring feeling. If it's that, it's easy. Another issue could be button on the board itself. In that case, it's complicated.

    The plastic thing on the board, or on the inside of the frame? I hope that makes sense. It's easy to break the one on the board if you take the board out and replace it.

    There is a potential fix for it that may work.

    If you want to PM me, I might be able to help.

    For anyone following this at home, post 5 in the following thread shows an icon board with one button there, and two broken off.

    Well, it's too broken for us to fix over the internet.
