Home button too sensitive after screen replacement

Hello, I have got question for ifixit community!

I had replaced a display on iPhone 7 plus for my customer. Everything works fine, but home button not. Touch Id works properly but home button clicks only on finger on. For example; I can't make double-tap for one hand control, because only on touch it clicks.

Had anyone this problem? Some reasons?

Thank you, Victor

Hello, I think that too, but I only switch 2 original displays. (Only Home buttons) and their bracket (I check if bracket is in correct position)

Readjust the screw right underneath the button, careful not to make it too loose or the button may leak water.

On a second thought, maybe you are not aiming for water resistance anyway, so just normal tightness and not too tight to break it, not too loose so it may come off and end you up with a dead forever button.

You mean put screw directly in home button without metal bracket?

No, adjust its tightness.

Sorry, I don't understand...

But thanks for your help :) Home button doesnt work normally outside of phone too.. I dont know what this can be.. Without bracket, with bracket, inside, outside, nothing works... Home button is too sensitive. I only put finger on it, and it clicks 2-times or more.. Not like on normal iphone 7, when I put finger on home button, it doesnt make anything..
