Hi guy, I have a problem with my M2 mini, the home button is not working every time I press it, any ideas what might be causing the problem and how to fix it? Thanks!
M2 mini home button not wotking every time
Does anyone know what mighy be the problem, softare or hardware? If I open the phone and clean it, will it work normal again? Thanks
I have the same issue. Seems to be a hardware issue because I have restored to factory defaults and updated flyme version but it continues working badly.
I also have tried cleaning it using alcohol isopropilic.
I think that only a replacement should work.
problem is hardware related happened to me some few months ago…
I took the phone for repair in the city I was in (location-China).
they opened up the phone and said nothing was wrong with the button but if I would want to change, I could only buy online as it was not available from the market.
On arrival of the button, I went to go fix and was told I could risk spoiling my screen
I was like whats the worse that could happen, you guys always say the same.
After the fixing was done, I tell you my screen did spoil had to buy and install a new screen. (also, from the shop I bought the button there had been some similar incidents about the ‘screen spoiling’ which I ignored)
SO, WHATS MY POINT?
- if it’s not a necessity don’t, (for my situation i was using an unofficial CyanogenMod 12.1 build so i was able to enable navigation keys which worked perfectly until i worsened the situation)
- if you must buy, look for an authentic button(Home建）, (i think mine wasn’t)
- look for a proffessional that knows his way round phones (for a little heating is needed to pop out the screen and also adhesive for gluing it back)
- i’d advice not to try fixing on your own but if you are a pro, ride on.
AND I HOPE IT WORKS OUT FOR YOU. GOD BLESS!
I dont know how much you use your smartphone. I am more a pc person.
But I just put the smart function on, so I can at least get to the homescreen if I needed to, and now I am happy. Isn’t perfect but enough for me.
I also tried a clean factory reset and updated to the latest G version, and put my phone over night in a glas of rice. In case it was caused by a water or rather cleaning damage! No success.
Once I installed the 4.5. I or A version and my home button worked a little bit. Or it was just one touch to get back to the home screen… I don’t know. Probably a hardware issue!
