It turned out that the Panel was defective. I ordered a new one and it worked great.

This sounds like an issue with the IC Chip on the home button flex. Usually this can be fixed by adding more Kaptons tape and making sure that every transistor on that flex is covered by the tape. Hope this helps!

Thanks for your Feedback.

What Part of the Flex do you mean exactly?

The whole Part going along the lower Part of the Panel next to Home Button, or the larger Part connecting to the Logic Board?

i tranfered the tapes from the origonal Display to the HomeButton Area, didnt help.

I made another iPad today, exactly the same, no Problem :S
