    Hi!

    So my Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge's home button stopped working properly.

    My fingerprint scanner doesn't recognize my finger when locked. And then I mean, at all - it doesn't recognize there's a finger onto it. It neither rejects or accepts it. But when I go to my fingerprint settings and put my finger onto then scanner it regonizes it and accepts it.

    Also, I can't press it twice to start my camera anymore.

    The only thing I can do with it is to lighten up my screen and getting to the home page.

    Thing is, it worked perfectly fine just a couple of hours ago. I haven't dropped it 'nor gotten any water damages onto it during the time.

    I've charged, restart, turning the settings for both fingerprint and camera on and off.

    I really wouldn't like to reset the phone. Any tips or help?
