Home button sunken in when pressed

I successfully replaced the screen on my iPhone 6. To keep the Touch ID working I kept the old home button and put it on the new screen.

I noticed that since the adhesive on the rubber is gone, that when I press the button it sinks in. Bye bye waterproof I'm thinking lol.

I made a video:

Any idea where what kind of glue/adhesive I can use to get it to stick again? Also useful to make other flex cables stick again after having peeled them off.

Currently, I only have double sided adhesive tape.

This is normal, the phone was not waterproof anyway. The gasket is really annoying to get it to stick again.

I think you would need a new gasket, they are pretty cheap ( about $2)

Nothing wrong with the gasket, it just doesn't stick anymore :(

I know, but once it is taken off it cannot be used again.

to start, the iphone 6 is not waterproof in the first place. i would suggest against using it in the rain, that gasket is to keep the button aligned with the orifice it belongs to, while maintaining a springback feel. (not the only mechanical part that offers this.

However, being inset in the device can be a cause of a couple things.

1) Loose screws on the mount

2) The flex does not fit properly on the folded circuit

3) The glass is manufactured thicker than the standard Screen glass.

4) the screen's plastic frame is not manufactured correctly.

5) multiple of the above.

There is a possibility that the adhesive on the rubber gasket may fix your issue, but i would guarentee it, as i replace home buttons on iphones regularily, and it is usually a manufacturers flaw on the screen when i see this.

Hope this helps!

Thanks for the input guys, I appreciate it.

To really find out, I could put it back on the original screen and see if it fits good there.

Again thanks ! Thanks for sharing your knowledge.

Buy a replacement gasket if you don't want the home button to rotate on press. You can bend the metal plate that goes behind the home button held in with two screws concave in the middle of it to make it not sink in much.
