There seems to be an answer here....

looks like a de-assemble does the the trick.

I reset my Kindle 4 times, (full factory), and presto, the power button is now working... I was ready to take it apart...

I reset my Kindle 3 times, (full factory), and presto, the power button is now working... I was ready to take it apart... Thanks Steve!

Partial disassemble + tightening 2 black screws at the bottom (4:19 in the video) solved problem for me.

Neither resetting a bunch nor just tightening those screws worked for me, but I disassembled a bit more and my button starting working again.

On the off chance anyone else still has one of these in 2018, I had this same problem with a non-working power button. I verified the Kindle worked fine by removing and replacing the battery (it rebooted as expected).

I then had to fully disassemble it to start playing around with the power button. I noticed it worked, but only if I squeezed on the right side (screen facing up) of the USB micro input. I tried screwing down as hard as I felt comfortable on the two screws either side of the home button. Still, the power button only worked intermittently. I deduced it needed more pressure for whatever contact is between the switch and motherboard. So, I added the nearest spacer I could find: I peeled off one of the rubber pads from the inside of the back cover, cut it in half, then placed both halves just below the screw on the right side. I reassembled everything and voila, this old clunky e-reader is still chugging along.

I didn't investigate the actual cause of the problem since I was too lazy to remove the motherboard. But I'm okay with a little mystery.

In my case squeezing or pushing on the bezel above the power button did make the power button responsive. So solving the problem is definitely about some pressure/tightening in the area of the button.

Thanks to all of you for this great device saving hint!
