Display replacement / fingerprint sensor

Hey I replaced the display, but the new display didn't come with a new fingerprint sensor so I transferred the old one and it doesn't seem to detect it. Has anyone had success transferring the fingerprint sensor?

Answer this question I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

The HTC one 10 that i worked on had a costume ROM which the home and fingerprint senor did not work until we had full assess to the Phone.

The fingerprint scanner is part of the home button itself. A lot of people had success replacing this part. I have seen a few iphones (5s) which had screen replaced but the fingerprint scanner was still working.

I have a theory, fingerprint sensor will only work with a genuine display part.

Thats likely the answer, currently using an on screen home button to compensate, no parts suppliers seem to offer a home button or display assembly that includes a home button.

It's confirmed, I've got another display part, this time directly from HTC, transferred old fingerprint scanner, all works fine.

I've got it from supplier who's known for getting parts directly from HTC stock in the UK

Could you please link to the shop? I need to replace the screen of my HTC 10 and would like to know it's a genuine display replacement. Otherwise I would need to find out via trial and error if it's genuine - which is quite the effort considering the low repairability of the 10 :/
