  • Answer to: Home Button Constantly Pressed Without Touching Device

    Seems like you have tried all the obvious fixes first. The problem may be on the Logic Board where the Home Button makes contact with the Logic Board. Has this device suffered water damage? I would take the device apart and focus on that area where the home button communicates with the logic board and try cleaning that area thoroughly with Alcohol. You may have some debris in there thats jamming the contact up.

  • Answer to: Connector type AirPort card

    Andrea, there's an existing thread on this topic already. But, replacing the card alone won't be enough. You would also have to swap out the antennae, as the ones in your machine aren't capable of providing the throughput that this card is capable on handling. Also, I would believe the firmware would have to be adjusted/updated in order for the card to function properly. In other words, the upgrade, even if it physically fits, won't provide you with any benefits as far as your Wifi performance goes.

  • Answer to: Water damage after put in washer

    Your first mistake was plugging the phone in to charge. That might have fried several components on your phone. You should have just opened the phone, placed in a container with rice and let dry naturally for 2-3 days before attempting to turn the phone back on or charging.
