Home button rapidly clicking after screen replacement

Hey guys. Just fixed a Iphone 7 screen. Normal process of moving over the front camera flex, speaker, lcd heat shield, and home button. Well when I finished it and pressed the home button it starts vibrating rapidly and opens recent apps. Nothing looks torn or bent so I dont know whats wrong. Any suggestions?

Answer this question I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

I’d check the Taptic Engine to make sure it is secure and make sure everything is grounded properly. Also, go into the Touch ID settings to see if that has any impact. Good luck!

How do you do that? Is there a guide?

Taptic engine is right above the charging port. Some are labeled : Taptic Engine some have black tape on them. Home button setting should be under Accessibility>Home button

Do you have another screen assembly to test with? It could be a faulty screen. I would also go back and reseat any connectors, and make sure the screws holding in the home button are not overtightened.

Same problem here and I’m on my 3rd screen. After 1st screen, home button worked just fine but phone would randomly turn off usually while taking portrait photos but sometimes other times too. 2nd screen, home button stopped working but Touch ID was working fine. 3rd screen, rapid clicking but home button worked and Touch ID still worked. iPhone 7 Plus. I’m at a loss. No damage to any cables or connectors.
