    Hi there! [​IMG]

    A few days ago my Samsung Galaxy S6 got wet after lying next to a leaking drinking bottle in my bag. It wasn't a lot of water and the phone was probably only in the bag for around 10 minutes before I found out. I took it up and noticed that everything was working as it should - except the power/screen lock button, which didn't respond at all.

    I tried leaving my phone in a bag of rice for some time, but when I took it out after about 30-36 hours, the button still wasn't working. I've also tried the volume down+power button combination, which turned the phone off. Afterwards, I used the same command to turn it on, but the problem persists.

    I've downloaded the app "Button savior", which makes it a lot easier to use the phone without the button, but I would obviously prefer getting it to work again if possible. Is there anything else I can do to try to fix it? I'm obviously a bit worried about turning the phone off, because what if I can't turn it on again?

    Thanks!
