@dianelk65 possible to post pictures? Should have two ribbon connections on the side. The 3rd is your. Home button assembly, which is usually transferred from the damaged screen. However, I’ve seen screens come both ways, With and without a home button assembly. iPad home bottons can be tricky. Unlike iPhones they aren’t reinforced with plates with screws and a gasket with adhesive. If not removed properly and reinstalled without the adhesive and gasket, the button will eventually be pushed inside of the iPad. If you have any reservation about reassembling the button it’s best to buy a digitizer with home button assembly/flex.

I hope this helps. This is what I had when I replaced my screen. Hard to make out the cable connection from the photo. It was supposed to be kind if a zif style connector.
