Home button stuck and won't push in

I just replaced a screen for an indivdual on his 6s, everything went well. Aside for the home button being stuck and unable to press in.

I had this issue on a phone I bought of a friend and it turned out the little metal dot on the bracket had broken off and i used a new home button bracket and it fixed the problem.

I figured this may of been my isssue but the home button bracket looked fine, took the home button of his phone a couple times to see if i could figure it out and no luck, i ended up putting the screen on still and just turning on assistive touch for him.. Charged him 20$ less for the repair unfortunately. I could click the home button a bit like if i pressed decently hard which I knew couldn't be right.. It was basically stuck in place.

I read someone say on another post its an issue with third party screens and the glass or something, and if i loosen the screws a little bit it may fix the problem.

Is there any info some of you may have? Those who have experienced anything similar on an iphone 6s repair.

Thank you !

Sounds like third party screens if the home button doesn't go in properly and feels squished.

Do you know the trick about bending the middle of the home button metal bracket in and out to adjust distance from the home button itself?

This helps a lot when you have home buttons that are either too dipped in or too high.

Mhmm I have not tried that, only done a small amount of repairs for people. So I need to bend the middle part in a little bit maybe ? The part of the bracket ?


Yeah, The part where you see the small circle plate on the home button metal plate middle.


Hmm. I'll have to try it out, Thank you ben, I recall squeezing the home button with the bracket on the back of it, and feeling it press in. (when I took it out to see what was going wrong) then after putting the screws back in, felt stuck again. I'll see what I can do

Have done several repairs since just used the trick of not tightening the screws all the way. Seems to work well.
