How to fix some mysterious problems.

My iPhone 5 running 7.1.2 on the Pangu jailbreak recently got the "Black Screen of Death". My power button is broken and I am unable to put in into DFU mode because my power button is broken. I cannot restore in through iTunes because Find my iPhone is enabled on my phone. I logged into my account to attempt to remove my phone from Find my iphone, which I did, but I still get the same problem on iTunes. I'm wondering if there is a program in which I can force restore or put into DFU mode?

Thanks in advance.

Hello given the fact that you are able to receive a replacment means there is a known issue with your model and if the phone was "in working condition" you wouldn't need to replace it and Apple most definitely wouldn't be giving you a replacment with no questions asked!!! I'd say you lucked out in the fact that you are unable to power up your device and chances are apple will not bother either since it must be a fairly big issue. It would be like General Motors inspecting every single cobalt ignition under the recalls not gonna happen my friend have a good one hope it works out for you!!!
