How can I repair the home button?

The home button on my iPad wifi has become unresponsive, however I have been unable to find a part that would change the switch. I have read the repair guide but don't know which part I should buy to get a née home button switch.

Answer this question I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

This sounds like you could get it fixed for free if you contact Apple. I have seen a couple of iPads with unresponsive home buttons that Apple fixed for free even past the 1 year warranty. If you do not have any liquid spill try Apple first and let us know if you have success.

I've tried with Apple, but they declined my request for a repair, which now leaves me with the posted issue.

Is the button completely unresponsive? Try to put a thick piece of paper under the home button. That trick worked with my iPhone 4, maybe it can help you too.

I like to use Ebay for parts like that. Here's one I found. You could also try searching for an iPad Home Button Replacement and looking for the curcuit boards. Hope you find what you need!

Yeah unfortunately the Home Button seems to fail on most iPhones and iPads.

Personally I've only ever owned one Apple product, which was the iPhone 4, both the home button and wifi stopped working after about 12 months.

I just ditched it and changed over to Android (which I prefer). My first and last Apple product.

Anyway I still wish you the best of luck with it.

Cheers Paul
