    Sounds like it's broken. You can get SOME functionality back by using assistive touch. Here's an OLD tutorial, it works a LITTLE different in iOS 9 but you'll still find it. You just HAVE to triple click the home button to turn it on now.

    You won't be able to fully power off, BUT you will be able to lock your device.
