Home Button Not Working After Replacing Dock Connector
I replaced the dock connector on my iPad and now the home button is not working. I thought maybe it was no longer making contact with the 2 contact points on the new dock connector so I unscrewed the home button from the Glass/Digitizer and held it onto the connection points on the dock connector and pushed the button but still nothing. I performed a continuity test between the contact points on the home button and I do receive a positive test when I push the button so I know the home button is good. I also connected the two contact points on the dock connector with a paperclip and it didn't perform the home button action (This step I am not sure if that is actually how the home button works on the dock connector but I thought I would give it a try)
Is it possible that I received a bad dock connector? I purchased a new one and not a used one from iFixit.
Is this a good question?
