S4 Home Button Click Solved
Have you ran into that annoying click that just started on your S4 every time you press the home button?
Don't worry, there is a fix!! I had this same problem on my S4 and I have horrible OCD so this was not kosher. I found that the cause for the clicking is the button sticking, causing it to click when you press on it. Anything you may get on your screen and wipe away, oils from your hands, dust, and plenty of other things can cause this to happen. The material gets between the button and the case and causes it to stick and click every time you press it. Temp solutions are to blow on it, or press on it really hard. All you need to do is get an electronics cleaning cloth, a business card, and some hand sanitizer. This will save you from having to send the phone in for repair or get a refurbished device.
- Put some hand sanitizer on the cleaning cloth. Not too much, just enough to make it damp.
- Put the cloth over the business card
- Use the combination of the cloth and the card and using a little pressure, stick it between the button and the case and go all the way around the button.
- If you didn't fix it the first time around, repeat until you are able to press the button without a click.
See the following images: (I can't post outside images, yet.)
EDIT - If a business card doesn't work for you, then find another object that will work to support the cloth. Only very thick business cards work without folding and bending. I used the object pictured below.
Note -- If you are mental, and use too much hand sanitizer you will damage your phone. You just need the cloth to be damp. I use hand sanitizer because it dries extremely fast. I am NOT responsible if you screw up your phone.
Let me know if this works for you!!
