The home button connectors are little gold contact points that need to touch a certain area of the motherboard. Is your front display placed in all the way? If it's not flush with the body, the home button won't be able to make contact, and thus will not work.

Hi, I have a probelm similar to that. The thing is I went to the shop and they showed me the connect cable is fine but the part on the motherboard has been damaged from trying to get it in. They say this not repiarable? Could I solder expert fix? He told me the whole board could melt doing that. Help???! :/
