sure you can clean it - and if you're lucky it would work again

first of all, get some isopropyl alcohol (>90%) or some electronics cleaner and a soft paintbrush. you will also need soe tools to open the iPhone. use the logic board guide to disassemble the phone, the needed tools are listed in the guide.

open the phone and clean every odd loking spot (white/greenish residue) with the ipa and the paintbrush, be careful, the parts are tiny. take special care around the home button, let it dry and then reassemble it - good luck

As I know, the home button is located on the frontpanel.... How can I clean that? Thank you

Kertvellesy Laszlo,

The home button contacts are "outside" the frontpanel - ant the important part, the other side of the contacts are still on the logic board ;-)

markus weiher,
