Dunked my ip4. Did the rice. Everything works Cept the power button. Is it worth trying to replace the part myself? And where can I find it??

probably corrosion on the board causing the problem not faulty button.
might wana take it apart and clean it properly with 99% alcohol.

I cannot be sure, but I dont think the board got wet. It was in an Otter box when I dropped it. I know its not waterproof, but I retrieved the phone very quickly. When I got home, I removed the back, and only found water around the dock connector. BTW, the LED is now glowing very dimly and wont shut off. lol. Guess im screwed. At this point, we are so close to IP5, that I cant see putting that much work into the phone. I was ready to use a GoPhone for 3 months. But I really wanna by that Ifixit IP4 repair kit. Just to have those bits.
