Vol+Mute+Power Buttons not working after repair!
I've just spent two PAINSTAKING days tearing my iphone into tiny bits and trying to get it all back together - I installed a new dock connector (easy enough) and new headphone jack/flex cable (nightmare!)
I had to do the headphone jack cable at least 10 times as the mute button would never sit right with the new switch and so didnt 'click' when you moved it...eventually hours later i got in the right place and put back the rest of the phone- to my surprise the phone turned on!- and microphone worked (yippee its been broken for months and I could only use handsfree- then the headphone jack didnt recognise the earphones last week so had to fix both!)
Anyway now the volume button , the mute button and the power button dont work at all!!!
When I was fiddling with the flex cable trying to get the mute button to sit right, I managed to break the round circle on cable 6 (see here- the goldy circle on the farthest left)

Do you think this is why none of these buttons work now or have I not connected something back together properly?!
Any help is SERIOUSLY appreciated coz I'm at that point where I HAVE to fix this myself out of stubborness and sense of achievement lol - I've never attempted a repair before and man its hard work with those screws if you dont have a magnetised screwdriver!!!
Sorry for the long post!
Well I realised after a restless nights sleep and not being able to switch my brain off I hadn't connected cable 5 - so I opened up my phone this morning and redid that- put it all back together- and now I get the white screen of death!!!
How can I fix this pleaseeeeeeeeeeee? I've tried dfu mode- wont work- tried reopening and reattaching cable 1- no diff....please can anyone help?!
PS I think the buttons should work now as the power cable does turn it on and off now!
