Repair Home Button Functionality
Hello All ,
I completed the repair of my friends iPad A1823 model front display as it was cracked very badly. I bought the ipad display kit and home button grommet from ifixit, all worked great and my friend loved it. The only thing is now the home button wont work unless you roll your finger across the button while pressing. I saw in the repair guide to be careful when migrating the home button from old display to new, and I was super careful. I put a small dab of super glue on each leg of the bracket that holds the home button in place to secure it , and was sure that would hold it all in place, but i guess its not working. My question is since the display is brand new do I only need to buy new adhesive strips from ifixit and then once get the display off get all the current adhesive off and replace with the new strips ? I dont want to do this incorrectly nor buy a whole new display. Also - any thoughts on the home button ? It worked great for me after repair but about 3 days after my friend had the ipad they text me to let me know home button stopped working unless you press it just right.
Any help is appreciated - thank you all
