While replacing my front screen I disconnected the home button ribbon located under the speaker configuration. Now I can't get it to get back on to stay and work properly. How can I fix this?

it's a slide in connection with a lockbar..you need to flip up the tab/lockbar on the side that the flex will go in, then slide flex in on top of pins, when you feel resistance push the lock bar back down.

I think that I may have taken the whole assembly off when I just needed to take the ribbon out. What disconnected was the connector. Do you think i broke it off beyond repair?

iPhone 4 Dock Connector Replacement

is it possible you have removed the dock connector? this link is about 3/4 the way through the guide, I think this could be it.

no i don't think so, my problem is where you connect the home button ribbon. I took/broke the (i hate to use this word, but I'm lost in words) "thing" that the ribbon goes inside off. not until i played around with it saw that the ribbon comes out of this small piece. my problem is how do i correctly reconnect this piece?
