    Angry Bottom buttons not working but touch screen is fine

    i just replaced a cracked screen on my sprint evo 4g. i ordered new parts and put everything back together. the actual touch screen portion of the phone appears to work normally, but now the home, back, search and menu buttons simply acting as right and left swipes. (scrolls to the left or right) what can I do??

    Same issue... just shot a message to the ebay seller... if I find something out I will send it. I took it apart and put it back together hoping I missed a cable... no joy. =(

    Temporary solution... On a pc go to play.google.com and search for button savior. I installed it from there to my phone. On the phone was able to launch it the first time from the status bar at the top. Once there I set how it would be activated and now I am at least able to work the phone. Not sure if it is my favorite "virtual" button solution yet... There are several to try. At least this gets the phone back to being useful...

    Not sure if any of you are still looking for an answer, but I found this thread when I had the same problem, so figured id update with my solution for anyone who might find it later!

    I had the same issue and fought with it for a while before finding the the ribbon cable that is just above the battery was not quite in all the way. Once I repositioned it, the bottom buttons (and the speakers) started working. To clarify this is the big ribbon cable in the center that runs underneath the battery, not one of the three on the side of the screen.

    Hey man, I have an Evo 3D and it has the same problems with the bottom buttons, do you think that would be the solution for my evo 3d?

    My phone dropped into a bucket of water. I managed to dry the motherboard and everything. The phone is working fine except for the bottom touch screen buttons. I am sure I didn't break the flex cable and I chance upon your reply on the loose cable. Could you clarify how it should be positioned? I am struggling to get it fix.

    Thanks tetro84. Your solution worked for me too.
    Although i did not see any disconnected cables, I unplugged them all and plugged them back in and this solved the buttons problem.

    Thanks again.

    Hi,
    My touchscreen for Nexus 4 is working however bottom buttons are unresponsive. Is there any permanent solution to this ?
    Do i really need to get the digitizer changed ? Does downgrading the android from Lollipop to 4.4 work?
