IPhone :: Home Button Stopped Working And Voice Control Comes On Automatically?

Mar 19, 2012

so over the weekend, while I was away from home, the home button on my iPhone 4 stopped working. It happened suddenly, and the only preceding events I can think of were that (1) we had heavy rain but I kept the phone in my pocket and neither my pocket nor the phone were wet when I took it out after the rain had passed (2) I downloaded the F1 timing app which initially had some crashing issues. I'm not sure if either of these contributed but it's possible.While the home button wouldn't work at all when pressed, I found that the voice control was starting automatically (and calling my contacts without me knowing). This would suggest a long press of the home button I think however I couldn't replicate it with the button. To avoid calling more contacts from my pocket I turned the phone off but it turned itself straight back on and always went straight to voice control after starting up. I finally got around this by leaving the phone on flight mode while not in use. I also found the accessibility setting to have an on-screen home button which made the phone slightly usable but not ideal.

When I charged the phone that evening it came up with the recovery screen requesting that I plug into iTunes. As I was away and without my laptop I was not able to do this but got through the weekend by cancelling lots of voice control pop ups and a lot of flight mode use. Now I'm home I have connected to iTunes and a restore was required. I followed this right through, the restore completes and when it reconnects to iTunes it says it needs to restore again. At this stage I can unplug it, turn it off and on again and use it.If it's turned on while unplugged it will start ok and then can be connected to iTunes and synced but the voice control will still start automatically after turning on and the home button does not work at all.If it's turned on while plugged in it will be in recovery mode and request a restore again.

IPhone :: Home Button Not Working After Water Damage / Still Goes To Voice Control

Jan 18, 2010

my 3gs iphone took 'the plunge' out of my pocket and into my toilet the other day. i was not happy. i immediately put the phone in some rice in a ziplock bag and waited. and prayed.today i took the phone out of its grain cocoon and was thrilled to see that it still worked. only problem? the home button is completely unresponsive. obviously i think this is a hardware issue, but what's really strange is that every time i restart the iphone (a few times), upon power up my phone goes immediately into voice control as if i pressed and held the home button. figuring there still may need some drying, i put the phone back in the rice for another 12 hours. questions:

1. does this whole voice control aspect put a software spin on this problem?

2. after i give the phone some more time with the rice should i do an update/restore?

3. should the genius bar be my next stop?

4. are there any other solutions out there besides this one: http://forums.macrumors.com/showthread.php?t=615755

IPhone :: Voice Control Keeps Opening Up Without Pressing The Home Button

May 2, 2012

Why does voice control keep opening up without pressing the home button? This happens when i'm listening to music or watching netflix. The songs will also skip and begin to fast forward without any buttons being pressed. I've done a restore on my iphone but this has not resolved the issue.

IPhone :: Home Button And Side Button For Volume Control Both Are Not Working Properly

Jul 5, 2012

My buttons seemed to have stopped working properly. In order to adjust the volume using the side button, I have to shut down the phone and then restart it. It will work for a while and then stops working and I have to go thru the process again. The home button just works whenever it wants. It doesn't fix the problem when I restart the phone. I can slide my finger in a circle around the button and it still doesn't work.

IPhone :: Home Button Stopped Working On 4?

May 10, 2012

As off yesterday my iPhone 4 home button stopped working. I could not reset (obviously) because to reset you need to hold home and power which doesn't work if home is broken. I tried turning the phone on and off several times and that had no effect. Out of nowhere it just started working again after a few hours. I upgradedd to 5.1.1 last night. It worked fine for about 24 hours. A few minutes ago it just stopped working again. I plugged it into itunes to backup and restore but it started working again. It worked for 5 minutes or so, then it worked only intermittantly for another 5 minutes and now it's broken again.

iPhone 4, iOS 5.0.1

That's basically it. I've tried charging it, plugging it into the computer, etc. and nothing has worked. I've heard about putting it into DFU and recovery modes but I can't do either since the home button stopped working. Is my phone dead or is there anything else I can try?

IPhone 5s :: Home Button Stopped Working Then Phone Crashed

Sep 9, 2014

Was using my phone today and then after about 15 mins I went to use it again and the home button would not work. Had to turn off then turned back on and nothing was different. Did this a few times as I spend a lot of time on my phone and once I was in an app then I could not get back out so I had to keep turning on and off. After a few hours of this the phone crashed and made me reset on iTunes. Did this and it still doesn't work. Phone is a a couple months old as I used my insurance after the last one went swimming.

Motorola Backflip :: Calls Going Straight To Voice Mail And Home Button Not Working?

May 28, 2011

I couple of days ago it shut itself off again. I took out the battery to reset it, but when it came back on the home button quit working, on both the front screen and the keyboard. Also, all of my calls are going straight to voicemail and the Happenings widget isn't working right. When there are no current happenings it says "keep up to date with friends in social networks". If you touch it, it says to setup a Motoblur account to use this service, but I already have one. I've tried just resetting the password on there, but that did nothing. And if I try to set it up, it comes up with a force close screen.

IPhone :: Voice Control Not Working On New IP 4

Jun 24, 2010

Having been used to Voice Control on the 3GS, I used it regularly for calling people, playing music, etc and always found it very accurate.However, the VC on my new iPhone 4 is really dreadful.I realise that it may be a simple fault with my actual phone and a simple replacement may be the only answer.I have a Genius appointment booked for early next week, but the thought occurred to me - has anyone else experienced this and if so, any ideas/suggestions?It cannot recognise anything I say and gets all commands truly wrong. I have tried resetting it but it makes no difference.

IPhone :: Camera, Vibrate Button, And Home Button All Not Working Properly?

May 23, 2012

have had my iphone for almost 1 and a half years, and about 8 months ago my home button started wrecking; i would press it and it would either not open the iphone (take it off sleep mode to show lock screen) or the button would get stuck in and would start the voice control.. then about one week ago my vibrate button wasnt vibrating, even when i got a call or message or alarm... around one year ago, my camera started wrecking; like i would go into it and it would be blurry, and over the past year it has been getting worse and worse, and now i cant use my back camera at all.

IPhone 4s :: GPS Has Stopped Working Automatically

Aug 23, 2014

Earlier this week I found that the GPS on my iPhone was not working. I have been using this frequently with various Apps and it has always worked flawlessly, in all of them.

I can get it to work but this means either doing a 'Reset Network Settings' or a hard reset, or restarting. Then it works, but only for a limited time, if the phone is turned off for a few minutes it has lost GPS again. I have tested both in and out of the case, ( Otterbox Armor ) so this is not causing any issues.

The other difference is that it's not connecting automatically every time to my WiFi, sometimes I have to enter the password, and some times not.

I have checked all the suggestions on the internet but I still have this issue, which is defeating me! Also my wife has an identical iPhone and the GPS on this works without and problem.

IPhone :: Voice Dictation And Siri Stopped Working?

Apr 4, 2012

For the last couple days, my iPhone wouldn't dictate anything I say and Siri just keeps saying, "I'm really sorry about this..." I've had issues in the past but they would usually resolve themselves within a few minutes. The only thing I can really think of that's different is that I had AT&T change my iPhone number a couple weeks ago.

Or if not who would be the better resource, AT&T support or Apple support?
