Title:

iPad Mini Home Button Not Working After Digitizer Replacement

Text:

Replaced an iPad Mini digitizer today and all seemed to be ok prior to putting the actual digitizer on.

But after putting the digitizer back on, the home button does not work, or to be more accurate, it always thinks it's pressed.

We tested the home button prior to putting the digitizer back on and it was working.  For some reason the iPad thinks the home button is always depressed (if you press the power button, it takes a snapshot).

Any ideas?
