    I've just got the same issue, fingerprint sensor and home button not working. tried numerous suggestions from forums and so far still nothing...the hardware test shows it as failing. Not a good start for a phone that's just over two months old. hoping for a software fix as don't won't to reset but have opened a ticket anyway to see what Oneplus support suggest. If come across a fix I'll be sure to post but so far it's not looking likely

    I contacted OP support (my first time) and detailed everything that I'd tried which is almost everything except a hard reset. The support was pretty good and my call was escalated over a couple of days to an engineer who suggested a hard reset which I was expecting they would do. I've since hard reset my OP2 and my home button is now working, only thing is that it didn't wipe the phone as I was expecting it to do so chuffed about that.

    Home Button just suddenly stopped working.
    Home Button is dead, I'm pissed off. Yet all solutions I tried, didn't work.

    The same problem here, but *#808# finger print test say pass. Tried flash all available roms, clear cache even format internal memory, no luck. Any solution friends???
    Is it worth to try open and take a look inside?
    Any ideas please post...

    Hello everyone,
    Same issue here. Out of the blue home button/fingerprint scanner stopped working. Not a single problem with fingeprint before this one. Wiped everything, did factory reset still nothing. *#808# finger print test says pass.

    Just fixed home button but don't know for how long :) just placed wet finger on home button slided around and felt vibration. After that cleaned with microfibre and its working fine. Finally 100% know that it was hardware issue.

    I must say a big praise to the team of OnePlus, in particular the employee named Rommel.

    During a remote session, he has installed on my OnePlus 2 a ROM version unknown to me. After that the Google authentication had to be skipped and the ROM update to Oxygen 2.2.0 by the device downloaded and be installed on this. Subsequently, the home button worked again!

    I have previously tried every possible solution can be found in the forums here. Since my attempts to awake the home button again, were all in vain, I was sure it is a hardware defect. Now I hope that the problem will not reoccur.

    Great job, OnePlus!

    Hi Amenophis, Is it still working? I am waiting for a remote session this sunday, hoping my identical problem will be solved. But several factory resets have solved the problem temporary, minutes, hours or days.. I fear same will happen after Oneplus carry out remote service...

    @Telly-13 Before the remote session I got a FAIL during the *#808# finger print test. Because of that I first thought it was a hardware issue, but it wasn't.

    Same problem for me. Not looking forward to RMA. Will just log a support ticket and see where that gets us. Understand there is a 10day response time. Phone has been slower after last OTA too

    My remote session was completed yesterday.. It didn't fix my home button, so will receive mail from support with next step.. Guess it will be sending it for repair. Anyone got experience on how the shipping costs are handled...?

    I think I will wait till a new OTA comes out and fixes the problem.

    I'm having a similar issue where my Home Button failed completely yesterday including the fingerprint scanner.
    I tried it all and restarting in Safe Mode did the trick.
    Fast-forward to this morning where everything was fine when suddenly no more Home Button, yet the fingerprint scanner works this time!

    Any other idea of what I could try? I'm not on 2.2.0 yet, would that help at all?

    I have the 6 t. and last night all my buttons on the outside stopped working. I have had the phone for a month.
