Thanks for the video, mine didn't start because the case button didn't reach the board button, so i had to add a little piece of paper between case and board to make it work again.

Home button does not work. Any suggestions on which part to organise or whether I can troubleshoot without too much hassle?

@Mountain Mama - it sounds like you may need to. The button may be bad or disconnected.

I put in a new battery and ever since then, my Kindle Touch 5 button won't work. I've taken the battery out twice and waited a few minutes, then reinstalled. No luck. Will disassembling fix this problem? The only way I can get out of sleep mode is to plug it I not my computer for a few minutes, eject, then it works until it goes back into sleep mode again and I have to start all over with the computer. If this will work, I'm ready to try it but wanted to check with you guys first.

Just so people know, the power button is part of display, not motherboard, and seems to be sealed. After I realized I had ordered the wrong part I sprayed contact cleaner into the button as best I could and reassembled. It's working but not well. Looks like a new Kindle is my only option since display is out of stock. BTW a reassembly video would be very helpful.
