Title:

Sleep/wake button and digitizer not working after screen replacement

Text:

Ok folks, this is an iPhone 4S working on AT&T. Screen cracked. Bought a replacement, this one:

http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0068PRBGM/ref=oh_details_o00_s00_i00?ie=UTF8&psc=1

Replacement was uneventful (I've done it about 6 times in the past), used ifixit directions. No problems during repair from what I could tell.

When I get it all back together, I notice that 1) the sleep/wake button does nothing and 2) the digitizer doesn't work (i.e., the screen turns on fine with home button, but there's no touch response whatsoever).

I've tried restore via iTunes, seemed to work normally, but no change afterward. Running latest OS (6.1.2 is it?). Can't do a hard reset without a sleep/wake button.

Any help would be greatly appreciated! Thank you!
