Title:

Will flux affect the home button?

Text:

Hi there,

Currently in the middle of doing an iPhone 7 small flex repair as it was ripped by someone. The pressure sensitivity doesn’t work but the rest of the functions of the home button work. I’m worried about the flux that i’m using affecting the sensor inside of the button itself as I’m working closely to it. I have covered some of the whole with thermal tape to hold the button and to keep the flux out but some has got in. Don’t want to find that when I finish the repair the home button doesn’t work because flux went in. Would appreciate the help on this one. Not sure if it will affect it.
