Glass replacement and no speaker sound

I did my first A1432 glass only replacement and i was dumb enough to remove the kapton tape.

The home button is not working properly, but what really concerns me is the that the sound isnt working even after hard reset.

So, no sound through external speakers, but i AM getting sound through headphones only.

Before i open this thing up and put the Kapton tape back on,i would like to know any reason why the external speakers might not be working as well..

Some have said that this wouldnt have anything to do with the not having Kapton tape on,but they do not know for sure

any ideas?

the below images show what i believe to be the speaker issue

You will lose your speaker sound if you've removed the two large screws on either side of the dock connector/charge port. Put them back.

The "area of concern" is unrelated--that's your WiFi antenna. Leave it alone, it should be fine. Test wifi before your final seal.

Your non-functioning home button--this is probably a poor solder joint at the home flex. You'll need a new digitizer or you may be able to reflow those solder joints DIY to get a good joint. This is usually just a digitizer defect. However, it is possible to lose home button function by knocking a key resistor near the digitizer connector or damage to the digitizer connector itself.

best of luck!
