The wiring loom for the button needs replacing. I had a similar problem with an iPhone 4. Repaired it myself for only a few quid but was quite a tricky repair for anyone not used to that kind of thing as the speaker and proximity sensor are on the same loom. Shouldn't cost much for a phone repair shop to do I wouldn't think.


This is the part you need and there's plenty of how to videos on YouTube if you feel upto the challenge.
