My home button won't work due to water damage

I dropped it into the bathtub but quickly put it in rice to get the water off. My fingerprint scanner works perfectly fine but the home button won't let me unlock my phone or go home, or anything. I have to turn my phone off completely and when I do that it doesn't let me swipe it for it to turn off. Then immediately it turns back on. There's also dark spots on the screen. They don't interfere with what I'm doing though. One is a big oval shape in the middle of my screen. In the top right corner there are just splatters of them and when you tilt your phone away, the whole bottom part is a dark brown.

I don't know how to take my phone apart. I don't even think I have the right screwdrivers and such for it.

Hm, I think since she's put it in rice already the phone will be sufficiently dry inside to power it on again without causing any harm.


Laurent, iFixit looks at putting water damaged devices in rice as a myth more the helping and for sure will not stop corrosion.

Hi there

Since you don't have the propper tools to open the device yourself, I suggest you take it to a local repair shop.

I've had some similar complaints from customers after they dropped their phones in water. Sometimes the 'click mechanism' doesn't work because of corrosion on the contact points, which is easily resolved by applying some rubbing alcohol to them and carefully scraping away the corrosion. Other times nothing helps and the button needs to be replaced, which will unfortunately mean you'll lose all TouchID functionality.

If you do want to attempt to replace the button yourself, there's an easy guide over here: Sostituzione del pulsante Home dell'iPhone 5s. The repair isn't difficult at all :)

Best of luck!
