Unresponsive Home button and Power Button

The home button and the power button on our iPhones, iPods and iPads are most prone to wear and tear due to our frequent usage. After some time, the buttons can become unresponsive or totally sunken in.

Most of the time, replacing the internal flexes can solve the problem. For iPhone 3GS home button, repairs can also be done to prolong the lifespan of the home button.

The best solution is to always replace the flexes, giving it a brand new lease of life. The original flexes we use can last for at least one year or longer depending on your usage pattern.

Here are some tips on how to prolong your home button and power button lifespan:

Be gentle to the button. You do not have to use too much force on the home button for it to respond. A light tap will do.

If you are using iOS 5 or above, you can turn on the AssistiveTouch function to reduce your dependence on the physical buttons. To turn on the function: Click on Settings > General > Accessibility > AssistiveTouch > On.
