home button not working after screen replacement on iPhone 7 plus
I’ve read all the posts across a ride array and have asked other experience phone repair techs. I’ve read anything from yes it’s possible to no it’s not possible so I wanted to ask here.
I did a screen repair on a iPhone 7 plus and have been stumped since. After powering it on and confirming that the screen works I found that the home button no longer worked and the digital assistive button was on. I ordered a new button thinking that perhaps I damaged it in the transfer but alas the new one does not work either. I’m currently trying to figure out as to what my options are to get the button back to at least working as it did not turn on the assistive touch when I turned it back on.
My other thought is could it be that the connection cable to the home button came either damaged or dead on arrival or perhaps I damaged it when reconnecting it and this could be the issue.
Is this possible to fix without taking it to apple due to to cost or is it locked due to the limiter that was first implemented when apple released the iPhone 7 plus?
Is this a good question?
