Pressing home button, doesn't always wake the screen

Certain times when I press home button to wake the phone, it does not wake the phone, and I have to press the home button again. It happens, when the device was not used for a few minutes and lies on the table? I restarted the device by pressing sleep/wake button and home button, but the issue still exists.

Could be a faulty home button flex, try replacing the home button flex, and hopefully it should be good after that!

Although, with this being an iPhone 5S, replacing the home button will lose Touch ID, you could also try unplugging the home button and making sure it's seated in correctly. :-)

Thank You, I also thought it just could be the home button (flex). I will try.


I replaced the Home Button Ribbon Cable , it works just fine now. Thank You.


No problem! :-)
