Make sure your buttons and rubber are clean and not sticky. If they are sticky clean them with rubbing alcohol and a paper towel. Make sure the hard black dots on the rubber are all even and not popped out. Then clean the brass colored "contacts" on the motherboard where the rubber makes contact with the motherboard with rubbing alcohol and a brush. You can see them on the pictures in step 16 here:
