Title:

One plus 5 get water damaged and I how can I replace the button

Text:

Hi all the forumers,

Firstly i would like to apologize for my stupidity as I was accidentally put my OnePlus 5 inside the washing machine and  wash approximately 1 mins before I take it out.

The time I took it out, i noticed the button (all of the button including the screen button) and the camera wash work perfectly. After that  I immediately clean it with water (because the phone outside have the soap). Then I shut down the phone, wipe it dry and once again I done a stupid thing which use the air blower to blow the phone. At the end I put inside the uncooked rice more than 30 hours.

Here is the issue that I noticed after 30 hours, ONLY the front facing camera and rear camera '''totally cannot work'''(seems like it unable to detect the camera attach on the motherboard)  and the fingerprint button a.k.a Home button,  as well as the back button and the recent button is '''unable to touch(nothing happen)'''. The rest such as speaker, port sensor working fine.(I didn't try the charging port yet)

So i decided to replace the camera and the button, so I can find the replacement part for camera, but I cannot find for the replacement part for button.''' Is that I need to replace the screen together to replace the button?'''

P.S. Currently I do not have any tools to open my OP 5 so I still put it inside the uncooked rice. Is this OK?
