How to deal with the iPhone with home button problem

iPhone users? I don’t know if you have met these kinds of situations that home button is unflexible or trouble to respond, they may be used to be occasional, perhaps frequent. We have to hit the button 4-5 times on average to get it to respond. As long as we met these situations, we firstly consider to send our iPhone to the Apple store for repairing. Then their genius will tell there are toubles on home button or lcd display, and they suggested getting a new refurbished iPhone to instead of the old one or replacing the home button and lcd screen.

Last month, one of my friends at NewYork met this case, then he asked me for help. His iPhone 4s have companied with him for over two years. But sevevals month ago, he had trouble with the home button not responding, until last month the iPhone 4s just hit seveval times on average to get it to respond. Then he told me he prefered keeping the old iPhone 4s to get a new mobile phone devices.

So I just advised him to have a check first, if the problem was caused by home button, or the lcd touch screen. The button and display were completely separate parts, you could first check the lcd display. If it was an unflexible display, got a new replacement lcd screen touch digitizer for iPhone 4s, only costing less thant $30.

But as above description, I thought it was most likely just the home button flex cable. Then  just to replace a new replacement home button flex cable for iPhone 4s, then he could  keep the iPhone 4s easily. At hytparts store, it only costed less than $5.

So I suggusted my friends to replace the home button flex cable by himself after he made sure it is the button’s problem. And I showed the iFixit guidance to help him make it. Step by step, he costed half 3 hours, and finished the fixing, his iPhone 4s got work normally again.

Compared to get a new iPhone, we should first consider if it is necessary for you. If you don’t want get a new one, you can find a right guidance to replace the wrong cell phone parts. And A rebirth will come to your phones.

Can these help you?
