In this video, I’ll be showing you how to free up a stuck button on your phone or tablet. By “stuck button,” I mean the kind of malfunction that happens when dirt and grime accumulate around a button’s housing, leaving you with a button that no longer gives you that “clicky” feeling, making it difficult to press.

Materials needed for this method are isopropyl alcohol, a Q-tip or two, and some canned air.
