Old homebutton wont fit replacement digitizer/lcd combo
Hello, i have a customer who needs the digitiser and lcd replaced on an ipad air 2 wifi. i noticed upon receiving the ipad, that the home button felt misplaced/stuck. it didn’t work at all, didn’t click and felt like only the top half was moving, while the bottom part was sort of stationary.
the digitiser was obviously replaced prior to this time, since it came off unusably easy. When i took the original home button from the old screen and installed it on the new digitiser, it wouldn’t click. i am fairly sure that everything was perfectly aligned, but i noticed that there is supposed to be a black dot on the tiny clicking “pad” on the button itself(not the bracket). this black dot was missing.
is there anything i can use to substitute this black, stabilising? dot? maybe something from another digitiser or an old iphone home flex or something? i have attached a picture that shows the black “dot” that is missing from the original home button.
