    Are you rooted?
    When did you notice it happen?
    Try restarting the phone

    Pull the battery too. That may fix it. Does it turn your screen on? As in its dead 100%?

    If the button is really messed up you could try this as a temporary workaround: Button Savior: http://market.android.com/details?id=com.smart.swkey
    The only thing it won't allow you to do is wake the phone.

    Do you mean it no longer works? It could be there is something wrong with the pressure plate underneath. Was the phone rooted or factory stock OS? If not, best bet is to get Samsung's warranty to cover it. No point risking or opening up your phone and replacing anything at this point either.
