Title:

Home button and microphone don't work but touch ID does?

Text:

Couple of days ago I opened up my phone to clean the camera because there was a lot of dust in front of the lens and it was making pictures look weird. I was really careful when opening but for some reason my home button and mic don't work anymore. However, touch ID still works fine. But having no mic on a phone kinda defeats the purpose of the whole thing... I read that people are advising to look for the black knob and I did. Its still there and sticking out like it should. I also tried removing the cable and putting it back multiple times with restarts of my phone but nothing happens. I don't really mind the home button because I can just use assistive touch but it's still a little more convenient to just use the button itself. Last thing I read was something about FL5  but I can't find anything about it so I gave up on that one. If you want me to post pictures just ask i'd really like this fixed.
