  • Home Button Problems

    -Home buttons, volume buttons, power buttons, and lock buttons all contain the physical button, known as a flex cable behind them. Which then connects to the main circuit board.

    -This flex cable contains a small contact that sits behind the physical button, that when applied pressure onto the button, will click and activate the response.

    -Many buttons may stop working over time and not respond anymore. This generally indicates a flex cable replacement for that button. If the physical button is missing as well, then that will need to be replaced also.


    Troubleshooting Home Button Problems

    Dirty button.

    -The issue could be dirt or sticky substance on or around the home button. Try using some rubbing alcohol (99%) and a tissue or cotton swab to wipe around the button. If this does not work, let a few drops of the alcohol land directly on the home button. Then tap the home button to let the alcohol seep in around it. After wiping the surface, wait about 15 minutes before testing the button again.

    Calibrate touch.

    -You can also try to calibrate the phone. First, open an app that was pre-installed, such as the clock. Then, hold down the sleep button until the “slide to power off” notification appears. Finally, press the home button and hold it until the home screen re-appears.

    Misaligned home button.

    -Sometimes your home button can be misaligned from constant plugging and unplugging of the power connector. You can often pop it back into place but plugging in the connector, laying the phone flat, and pressing down on the connector for leverage.

    Power Button Problems

    Mobile buttons can take a beating through everyday wear and tear. If the phone is dropped, internal components of the power button can be knocked loose or broken causing the connections to be missed. There are a few things that you can do to troubleshoot the problem before seeking repair.


    Troubleshooting Power Button Problems

    -First, you’ll want to make sure your battery is not dead. Charge your phone overnight and try the power button again. If the phone still won’t turn on, then it could be the power button. There are do-it-yourself kits available for replacing the power button. However, you will have to work with very small and delicate pieces of your phone, and you run the risk of causing further damage. The other problem is that you could replace the power button only to find out that the issue was really a faulty battery. A professional diagnosis and repair can minimize the risk.

    -If you need to use your phone or retrieve data from it before having it repaired, you might be able to power it on by removing the battery and plugging it into the charger. After about five minutes, the phone may power on by itself. This allows you to get any immediate information that you need.
