iPhone Home Button Charging Cable Fix - Works for 4, 4S, 3, iPad, iPod Touch

Did you know that your charging cable can also be the culprit behind an iPhone 4, 4S, 3, iPad or iPod Touch's home button that will not respond or work? Slight wonder as your iDevice's home button resides so close to the charging slot. So, if you imagine the impact that the innards of the home button suffer every time the Apple idevice charger is inserted, it all starts making sense.

A word of caution though: when you are applying this fix, do not exert too much pressure as you might end up breaking the hardware inside the charging slot. All it needs is a gentle push.

The Charger Fix


You need to watch this video to understand the iPhone home button charger fix for iPhone 4, 4S, 3, iPad and iPod Touch. All credits to iPhone4idiots on YouTube. Thanks guys!



Update: We have used this fix numerous times and we have seen that if your iDevice is getting old, you might need to repeat this fix quite often.  To get the best performance from our aging iPhone4's home button, sometimes we use this fix as a supplement to the alcohol fix.
