Thread: iPad2 Home Button unresponsive
04-22-2011, 09:01 AM #1iPad2 Home Button unresponsive
I recently started experiencing an issue with the Home button on my iPad 2. Occasionally, pressing it will do nothing. So I press it again -- sometimes upwards of 4 or 5 presses before it finally responds. I'm not mashing the button and am certain that each press is an appropriate amount of force (I proudly own an iPhone 3, 3GS, 4, iPad 1 and now iPad 2, so I'm confident about how much force to press these Home buttons).
I tried power cycling the iPad 2, but that didn't help. I closed all running applications. At first, that seemed to work. For several hours, the Home button was perfectly responsive.
But alas, here I am this evening, again frustrated with the non-responsive Home button. At times, I can't even turn on my iPad since the button won't respond for several seconds.
Again, this is occurring whether I'm using my configuration (latest IOS version) or even with the factory default setting.
Could really use some help or advice. Is anyone else experiencing this?

This could be a software problem, I'd suggest backing up all your stuff and doing a restore.

check the home button flex ribbon.
