Just wondering if anybody has any other troubleshooting methods to get the button working again, fingerprint sensor works fine

- Replaced home button extension cable

- Restored/updated phone

- tried recalibrating

or does anybody know a shop that can transfer the IC etc over to a new home button?

It is possible that the small part under the button is damaged ( I forgot what it is called)

But if you can fill the "Click" or you know the part is not Damaged follow these steps

1.Press the Sleep/Wake button to lock your device. 2.Wait a couple of seconds.

3.Press the Home button. Your device should wake up.

If your device doesn't wake up, follow these steps. Test the Home button after each step:

1.Restart your device.

2.Check for debris or dirt around the Home button and clean it with a soft cloth. 3.Remove any protective film or case that covers the Home button.

If the Home button still doesn't wake the device, or if the button is damaged, contact Apple Support.
