iPhone 5 home button doesn't work after dock connector replacement
I had charging issues with my iPhone 5, so I ordered a new lightning port connector. I installed it and the charge issues are no more. Now the home button doesn't work. I tried shorting the two gold prongs while the phone was open and it did not trigger the home button.
If I connect the old lightning connector cable and try shorting the gold prongs, the home button works fine.
This could only mean that the lightning connector I ordered is faulty? I installed it correctly with washers and such, and the metal flex cable that wraps around the headphone jack lies on top just like in the guide photos.
