Will flashing a custom ROM will resolve the home button not working issue?

    What was the result of fingerprint sensor test..?
    Also did the problem just suddenly pop up or did it happen after an update or setting change.?
    It might be a hardware issue.
    Sometimes it happens due to moisture. Mine stopped working but after few hours it automatically started to work.
    I'd recommend trying a custom rom or any previous versions of your current rom where it was working, before going to a service center.

    I have tried various custom roms as well as previous oos versions but had no luck resolving the issue. None of the xda methods worked for me.
    Then i realized that previously i was caught up in a rain. My phone was not wet that i know of but there might have been some water contact due to which it had stopped working. This might be the explanation of it not working.
    Considering going to the service center.

    The message shows that Android could not find the hardware.

    it quite a while already, afaik, the phone suddenly rapidly vibrate for a few seconds and the home button stopped working since.

    I considered the moisture problem as well, but my phone haven't touch an6 water since, I also tried to clean it but still not working.

    I had the same problem. I tried everything, no luck. It just started working again a few weeks ago. This has happened to me three times now.
