Cell phones and tablets are fragile devices and sometimes their buttons stop working. Buttons may break, start to stick, fall off, or the mechanism may not work as well as it did before. Button problems could prevent you from accessing the home screen, turning the volume up or down, or even turning the device on and off. The experienced technicians at Triangle Cellular Repair can fix broken buttons on your phones, iPads, tablets, and other devices quickly.
Can I Fix It Myself?
Sometimes dirt and debris may cause buttons to stick. You might be able to clean around the buttons with a cotton swab and a toothpick to improve the contact between the button and the button’s mechanism. If possible with your device, you may also try removing the battery, reinserting it, and allowing the battery to fully charge before turning on the device. If neither solution helps, then it is time for a professional repair.
Never attempt to disassemble your own phone or tablet. To fix button issues, technicians need to carefully remove fragile mechanisms with small cables to avoid damaging them or the device. This takes experience and is a repair best performed with professional equipment. We have had customers bring their device to us in pieces after attempting to repair it themselves. If this happens, we will gladly help put everything back together, but it can also be avoided! We have also found (and replaced) missing parts from do-it-yourself repairs, and we are able to recognize and offer solutions to issues that a novice may not recognize. We strongly suggest letting professional technicians repair your smartphones and tablets for the best result.
