    Hi, i've got an iPod Touch 2G i'm fixing for someone. Fixed the screen and digitizer but once putting it all back together and the home button isn't working. So i've taken it apart again and pressed the little gold square looking thing (the bit for the home button) and it still doesn't work

    If i press this down is it suppose to work? Or does it have to go through the little bit on the midframe? Need advice asap please.
    Thanks, Greg.

    Why? There not going to do anything as there is no warranty and it's been opened. And the nearest Genius bar is about 50miles away.

    Try giving it to me and let me fly away to where you dont know and that might work lol.

    Try buying a cheap old ipod touch 2g on ebay and taking the part from it out and in your one!

    That's not exactly helping is it? I want to know if the home button works if you push the little gold bit on the board with your finger or not.
  7. Same thing

    I have the same exact problem, If you have found anything out let me know.
    I kno its something with the ipod as the touch screen works fine and I used multiple digitilizers/screens and on all the touch screen works but no home button???

    Any advice?

    Thanks

    It's not supposed to work, it goes through the little thing on the midframe.

    Hi Gbaby158
    I have the same problem but I did get the little gold thing to work as the home button a few times by pressing it with a screw driver. So I guess I must have shorted something.
    Have you found out anything else?
