In regards to the power button not working. Ive seen a few phones come in to my store, and we haven't been able to figure out any fix for it yet short of opening it and replacing parts. Since you have tried my first suggestion of resetting it, I would suggest you find a repair depot, and get them to replace that piece.

SOURCE: I cannot make outgoing calls with my iphone.

I have ran into this same problem with 2.2 on and iPhone 3G, sadly you will need to plug your phone into your computer and do a restore of the system software, I would go to 2.2.1 when you restore.

If the clock is not set, nothing will work as the controls require the time to be working. Press Clear/stop twice and press clock, set time and press clock again.
Hope this helps.

It won't scroll or power down

Do a soft reset, hold your power and home buttons at the same time until the iphone turns off, keep holding until the apple logo appears, when it appears release them, this should do the trick.

Mitsubishi TS-50611 projection tv has no video

You can do quite a bit to narrow things down....

First thing, unplug the set and wait 10 minutes. Then plug it in and watch the green power LED. If it does nothing push the power button and watch the power LED. If the set doesn't respond hold down the MENU and INPUT buttons on the front of the set until the LED starts blinking. If it blinks at this time count the blinks and then repost.

IPhone won't shut off.

From the website - the 2nd one worked for me:

If iPhone won't turn on, or the display freezes or doesn't respond
  1. Press and hold the Home button for at least six seconds, until the application you were using quits.
  2. If that doesn't work, turn iPhone off and turn it on again. Press and hold the Sleep/Wake button on top of iPhone for a few seconds until a red slider appears, and then slide the slider. Then press and hold the Sleep/Wake button until the Apple logo appears.
  3. If that doesn't work, reset iPhone. Press and hold the Sleep/Wake button and the Home button at the same time for at least ten seconds, until the Apple logo appears.
