Home Button Not Working Even After Replacement

Hello,

I have a iphone 5s whos home button has stopped working, i have got 2 replacements and tried both of them and neither have worked. my next idea would be to change the charging port, but im not sure if that would do the job so asking you guys if you have any ideas.

Thank you

I mean, if it's not the actual button itself, or the cable connecting the button to the board, it's probably the board the button is connected to yeah. Though you sure it's the charging port?

well the home button connects to the charging port so its possible, i need to get the part to test it to be sure though. i have a funny feeling its a logic board issue to be honest. just thought i would throw the question out there just in case :)

Is it the actual button? Or the ribbon? If its the ribbon, you may as well get a whole new phone as that is non fixable unless you want to buy a new logic board to have installed which is about the price of a new one.

are you referring to the home button ribbon? i know the home button is able to be replaced, you just loose the touch ID functionality which it already doesn't have for a while anyway as the home button was already replaced about 6 months ago

The ribbon (one attached to the logic board) if ripped or damaged is impossible to replace unless replacing the entire board

We repair torn home button ribbons in my store.

Aftermarket homebuttons will work, however it will disable Touch ID functionality.

ive tried that already too, not bothered about Touch ID

Then your issue is more than likely in the charging port. Not the home buttons.

This is more than likely the charging port flex connector to the home button replace that and should work no problem.

if you have the orginal home button on there its probably the connector, circuit board, or software glitch.

If you have a aftermarket home button it will not work. It has to be an Apple home button which you could get a Apple but they have to install it. Or just disable the home button and use the accessibility buttons on the screen as your home button.

it is A original apple home button but not THE original button. its already been replaced once and worked for a good 6 months now its not working again. have 2 other original buttons but neither work

From my understanding the home button Touch ID needs to be reprogrammed if you replace it with an original apple home button which you can only get from Apple store and they have to install.
