Home Button does not Fit Into New Screen

Purchased a screen to replace the broken screen on a phone that I am repairing. When I went to seat the home button from the old screen into the new screen, it will not fit. I wish I could give more of an explanation, but the home button just won't fit into the space provided. It either sits on something on the top that I can't see so that it is at a diagonal angle, or it does that on the bottom. Any ideas of what is causing this or any solutions? I am supposed to have the phone finished in an hour.

Thank you!

Hi there,

I have also encountered this issue, very fustrating. Only solution is to either send the screen back or use an alternate home button, seeing as the repair is a 5S I wouldn't recommend the latter due to Touch ID complications.

Yep, just returned the screen and got the new one today, only problem is that the digitizer cable on the new one isn't fitting into the slot on the logic board...still squishing it around and hopingl
