Removing the internal portion of the lock and volume buttons may be necessary if either the lock or volume buttons have stopped functioning, the device was severely damaged due to a drop, or the device has been exposed to water. This one component is attached to both the lock and volume buttons, which makes for an easy fix if both are not functioning! This guide is fairly simple and not extremely long.
