Did you replace the Home Button with a replacement button or did you just transfer the original HB? Replacement Home Buttons don’t work…at all…and in some cases, they will actually impede the device from booting.

Normally, you want to transfer the original HB when you replace a screen. If the original HB was also damaged or defective, then only Apple can replace it with a functioning unit. Any third-party replacement HB is for cosmetic purposes only (it fills the hole). Some can be connected without any issues but other times, connecting it actually causes issues with the logic board.

Thanks Minho. The original HB was damaged and I replaced it with a cosmetic one but I didn't realise this may have been the issue.
