Hi everyone,

I've looked on the internet for months and months, I know there are a lot of people out there who have problems with the 'Home' button not responding.

This is common on the galaxy s and the galaxy 2. I Just want to clarify i have the first edition galaxy s (hence posting in this section i guess!)

My home button just randomly stopped working one day, no changes or modifications to the phone. (Updated to Froyo with Kies long before the problem started). Did not drop or damage in any way.

I am assuming it is a hardware fault. Has anyone out there found a fix for this yet?

I refuse to pay for it to be fixed because knowing what these companies are like they will just send it back saying its water damaged and wont bother with it, and charge me a bomb.

Please, if anyone has any insight or has had this problem and fixed it, please please help me.

Thank you!

Well, in my experiance samsung doesn't seem to do that, for now.

As is with all companies when they have success for a while their support starts to go down.

But Right now it seems they want customers and so they seem to have a good support system in place.

But if you insist they will charge you a leg and an arm then try your local Repair Shops.

The Problem is that the Hardware button has a lifespan as well and can die from too much abuse. The Design used is widely used standard but taking that button apart is real tricky, make sure you give it to someone who has either done this before or is real Pro.
