Question Replaced screen, why is original home button not working

May 22, 2020
I bought an iPhone 8 Plus to fix that had a cracked screen which wasn’t even showing anything on the screen, not even at start up.

I replaced the screen and transferred the home button from the original iPhone 8 Plus that I bought.

started up beautifully and all functions seem to be working like new...except the home button! I tried positioning and repositioning the Home button for two hours, and varying how tight I tightened the screws in it’s corresponding cover/bracket

Please help. I’m Wondering if maybe the serial number/compatibility with the new screen is the problem, but the internet doesn’t really give a clear answer.

if you can help i would be very grateful. :)
