Home Button doesn't work after iPad 6 screen replacement

I have been repairing electronics for years. Never had any issues with iPads until recently, home buttons stop working after digitizer replacement. There is no damage to the home button or the cable or anywhere. Anyone else having this problem?

Or have found a solution?

Answer this question I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

It could just be an alignment issue, is the metal part of the home button bracket (which is the contact for the button) aligned with the center receiver of the home button?

No, it even makes the clicking sound and everything. Even when I install a new button, still doesn't work.


The clicking sound is not an indicator of anything. Try to align it better with the bracket. I had this issue as well last week.

Look at the back of the home button. There should be a tiny black dot in the center of the switch. If all you see is amber that dot has fallen of and the switch will not work when installed.
