Nexus S Power Button Not Working

Hi all,

My Nexus S dropped into water the other day. After it's dried, I managed to boot it up by plugging in the power cable. Soon I realized the power button had stopped working. Other than that the phone seemed to work fine.

What should I do to get the phone fixed? Any ideas what parts I should replace and where can I find them? Thank you!

Hi Jason,

I trust that you did a great job in drying the phone. I would make sure that the phone is completely dry inside. If the power button did not experience a physical damage, its malfunction could be related to water inside. And besides that, corrosion can occur.

I would open the phone and disassemble it as good as you can. Let every part dry. Also, take the motherboard in particular and lay it into isopropyl alcohol (90%). Let it stay there for about 10 minutes before you take it out of it. Then let it dry for about 2 days (e.g. next to a warm source like an air conditioning) before you put it back again.

Sure, water damage could have created an immediate shortcut. However, by following the steps above we might be able to solve the issue or - at least - are able to go from there.
