Fingerprint function does not work


I repaired my ipad mini 4 for the first time,

I have an problem with the fingerprint function.

When i replaced the home button and try to test the screen and the function ,my fingerprint does not respond anymore.

I checked in the touch id options and it is not turned of so i think its not broken, also i can just switch it on and off. When i had this problem with an iphone the ios gave an error that the touch id will not work.

Is there any solution for this or what i might did wrong.

Answer this question I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

Yes, replaced everything original, only the solder part i did not, because i read that the solder thing is for the power button sleep mode

did you use the original home button, as other home buttons wont let you use touch id, only apple can supply home buttons with touch id

The OP may have damaged the flex cable. Even a tiny tear could cause the Touch ID to fail.
