Home button not working after charge port was replaced

Charge port was not charging new battery so I replaced it. Now the batter charges, but the home button is not working. Is there something I could have missed that is a common mistake when it comes to this repair?

Is this a good question?

You are correct David. There is some damage on the side that is not letting the display sit flush. So I need to adjust it. If I put pressure on the side it allows the home button prongs to seat correctly. Thank you sir.


No problem
