Why doesn't my home button work?

I have installed a new charger port, Wi-Fi antana, and digitizer/front panel. They all work except the home button on the front panel.

Before I reassembled the Ipad, I testsed two home buttons on the charger port probes but they didn't work.

Any ideas on whatelse could be wrong with the home button?

Answer this question I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

the home button signals through the charge port. if you replaced the charge port and the new port doesn't have home button function, this is either damage to the connector on the board or a bad part. rule out bad part first.

I'm having a similar problem. When I replaced the charge port, the charger started working when it hadn't previously, but the home button still doesn't function. I tried taking the home button out of the glass thinking it might not be connecting correctly (too much adhesive, etc.) but it still doesn't work. Is there a way to repair the connector on the board without having to get a new board as my ipad isn't worth that much?

I have replaced the didgitiser on an iPad 2 after LCD flex swop out. Digitiser and Home button was all working fine before this. I've tried 2 brand new digitisers now but still the Home button refuses to be responsive. Connectors are fully seated. Now that Jessa has mentioned the signals goes through the charge port I will check that and hope to get this fixed. I haven't changed the port. Will post back when I get a chance to examine it.

Checked components under a microscope and nothing knocked off at all. Reseated connectors and still no Home button function :(

Tried the Home button recalibration fix but no good either.
