IPhone video button not working

It snowed in Houston two days ago and I tried to take a video of it on my IPhone 4. I kept pushing on the video button but nothing worked. I found an IPad discussion that said if you had upgraded to OS7 then you needed to slide up and down. Well that didn't work on my IPhone so I tried side to side-low and behold that worked. Why doesn't Apple tell us these things???

We are just users like you and have no way of knowing why Apple does the things they do.

  • IPhone Home Button not working after upgrade to ios 5.1.1

    Hey everyone,
    I'm pretty sure this is a software failure due to the symtoms the iPhone is showing;
    0 - the home button does not work at all when the phone is turned on and running ios 5.1.1, well it used to work okay when i had ios 5.0.1, I upgraded to 5.1.0 and started working randomly, upgraded to 5.1.1 to see if it was fixed with no luck at all.
    1 - When locked the screen does sometime light up, like when you press the home button and don't slide the unlock button. but it does not exit apps anytime, I mean it doesn't act like it's pressing the home button randomly but only when the phone is locked.
    2- The button does work perfectly when iOS is not running: I can get in and get out of recovery and dfu mode at will, that wouldn't be possible if the button were broke.
    3- what else? Oh yea, not really a symtom: Tried the 'home button calibration' several times.
    4 - It's not filthy, since I really cleaned it thoroughly with a powerful tiny nozed air blower I got and gave a rubbing alcohol treatment too.
    5 - when I shut the phone down it instantly turns back on, I can interrupt the turning on for turning the phone into dfu mode (i'm sure It's in DFU mode because the tinyumbrella log monitor tells me)
    I'm now using the 'soft' home button that goes in the accesibility options, but hey, I didn't pay a ton of money for a phone that the same Apple is gonna break down.
    It's out of warranty and I don't have apple stores where I live.
    I'd downgrade to 5.0.1 in a snap if I could but I'm not into jailbreaking, so the shsh blob thingie is not a possibility.
    Any apple dev around that can give me a workaround?
    thanks a lot in advance
    Added more info ~ 

    I had the same problem with Home button not responding after upgrading from iOS 5.1 to iOS 5.1.1 on an iPhone4.   I solved it but not sure exactly what fixed it.   Here is what I did.
    1.  Took it local Apple store Genius appointment.   They used a special tool and took some lint out of the connector opening.   The Home button started working.   They said even though the phone was out of warranty, I could buy a new replacement one without a contract for $150. 
    2.   The Home button stopped working when I got home.   I got some compressed air in a can and blew the air through the connector to try and clean out more dust.   I now keep the phone with the connector opening facing down in my pocket.   I also struck the phone downward on my hand or other soft surface to force as much dust out as possible.
    3.  The Home button still was intermittent.  I then tried to do a hard reset by holding the power on key and the Home button simultaneously for about 10 seconds.  This doesn't work if the Home button doesn't respond.
    4.  I connected the iphone to Itunes via the USB to sync the phone.  While connected, I did a Hard Reset by Holding the Power button and Home button simultaneously.  I noticed the Home button responded better when connected to ITUNES via the USB.
    5.  I did a backup of the iphone4 by highlighting the iphone 4 while connected to ITunes and right mouse click and selecting BACKUP.    I was prepared to reset my phone4 in iTUNES and restore it from the backup.
    The phone worked consistently before I had to do this.
    6.  As a last resort which I didn't need to do, I was going to copy all my settings for the iphone by selecting the phone in iTUNES and looking at all the sync settings.   I would then have restored the iphone to original factory settings and then sync the phone using the copied settings.  This would have made sure that the backup didn't include the bug.
    Fortunately, I didn't have to do step 5 and 6.   Things started working after Step 4.  So I don't really know if it was the iOS 5.1.1 upgrade or pure coincidence that the Home button stopped working immediately after the upgrade.

  • IPhone 5 buttons not working after update

    After updating to 7.0.2 yesterday, the home and power button of my iPhone 5 stopped working and they are no more responsive, anyone has an idea? No mean to restore it back to the default settings because iTunes asks me to deactivate the Find my iPhone which I can't access as the buttons are not working.

    Me too. All of the sudden I realized the right hand side of the power button stop responding, only the left side works. I may have to restore back to 7.0

  • Javascript "Play Video" button not working in Firefox

    When clicking on "play video" (java), QuickTime will not open while using firefox. It does work in Google Chrome and IE. I have tried using a clean user profile & allowing popups, and I made sure the Java and QuickTime addons were working and up to date.
    The problem is with twit.tv/twit. Clicking the "Live" link on google.com does play the live stream, but the actual Java buttons are not working in Firefox.
    == URL of affected sites ==

    Make sure that you do not block [[JavaScript]]
    Start Firefox in [[Safe Mode]] to check if one of your add-ons is causing your problem (switch to the DEFAULT theme: Tools > Add-ons > Themes).
    See [[Troubleshooting extensions and themes]] and [[Troubleshooting plugins]]
    If it does work in Safe-mode then disable all your extensions and then try to find which is causing it by enabling one at a time until the problem reappears.
    You can use "Disable all add-ons" on the ''Safe mode'' start window.
    You have to close and restart Firefox after each change via "File > Exit" (on Mac: "Firefox > Quit")

  • Video buttons not working ipad

    ttapping play works, tapping again pauses - but I cannot slide the video button to FFWD or rewind since IOS 8 update.

    Hi Bob,
    Thanks for your suggestion ! Yes, I already thought of that. But it would be much nicer to have control buttons and just one big video. But again, if it can't be done, it can't be done. And I will probably have to split the video if I want someone to be able to jump to the next chapter.
    Now I am looking into the possibilities to use HTML5 to play the video, but I'm still trying to find out if HTML5 supports some kind of control buttons. If it does, the next step would be to try to insert HTML5 into my project (Overlay creator) and see if my Ipad can play this. I haven't got a clue, don't know anything about HTML5. But I'm ready to find out ... ;-)

  • IPhone 4s buttons not working

    My phone is freaking out and neither the home button, nor the power/sleep button is responding!  The phone is 'on' all the time so I've plugged it in to save the battery from draining too fast.
    I have looked over various forums and have opened an original iphone app (such as clock) and tried holding the power button down to then hold the home button down to calibrate it but since neither button is working, that method hasn't been effective.
    I have blown around the buttons to blow away dirt to no effect.  I don't think I have anything suitable to wipe it down but maybe there's more suggestions?  It does seem a bit strange that both buttons shouldn't respond at exactly the same time for dirt reasons, though.
    Most of the remedies I've found require being able to access 'settings' but I can't get out of the apps I'm in to be able to access my settings.  I have ios7 so I can use the touch screen to access the 'control panel?' with the various app shortcuts but that's all.
    I'm at a loss so please help me if you can as I use my phone all the time!

    Found somewhere that if you press the power button at the same time as the home button, it'll turn the phone off.  I tried it and it worked.  Turned it back on and everything seems to be fine again!  Hopefully it won't happen again but, if it does, this trick should work and I'll start using the 'assistive touch' feature.

  • Why is my iPhone home button not working?

    Recent;y my iPhone 4 home button has intermittently stopped going "home" and just stay on the last page selected.  I spoke with an apple customer service person and the said that if the horizontal tray at the bottom of the display could be too full ad that would cause a delay in the home button working. Any suggestions?

    If this has anything to do with software, a back up and restore is always the best option to do! First you will want to create a back up via this link:
    After the back up has been created, if you really want to save your information to the computer than here is a whole list of ways to save your info to a computer:
    Section 1:
              -About authorizing and de-authorizing:
              Prevent unprompted syncing of your iPod, iPhone, or iPad:
    Mac- http://support.apple.com/kb/PH1764
    Windows- http://support.apple.com/kb/PH1677
    Section 2:
              -iOS how to transfer or sync content to your computer:
              Transfer purchases from your iPod, iphone, or iPad to an authorized computer:
    Mac- http://support.apple.com/kb/PH2554
    Windows- http://support.apple.com/kb/PH2566?viewlocale=en_US
              iOS: Importing personal photos and videos from iOS devices to your computer:
               Backing up, updating and restoring:
              Downloading past purchases from the App Store, iBookstore, and iTunes store
    After you are comfortable that you saved all of your information, do a system restore back to factory settings! the reason is because if you can prove to apple, that in factory settings that the phone is not operating as expected, so long as your in warranty they will service the product. If you are outside, you should only have to pay either $169 (Canada) $149 (USA) for an iphone 4. It may be a little more expensive for the 4S as it is the newest product. Those same prices apply to a iphone 3G and 3GS

  • Iphone menu button  not working takes several clicks to change menu

    I can push on off button, and keep pushing menu button  and will finally change, but doesn't just click to change anymore. Just started this today, I just got the phone when verizon came out with it in Feb. so is still new. What can I do?

    Restart iPhone:
    Press and hold the On/Off Sleep/Wake button until the red slider appears. Slide your finger across the slider to turn off iPhone. To turn iPhone back on, press and hold the On/Off Sleep/Wake button until the Apple logo appears.

  • IPhone 4 buttons not working.  HELP!

    I live in Spain and I've had an iPhone 4 for a little over 2 years.  All of the buttons on my phone no longer work except the home button.  How can I get this fixed?  Is this something that Apple will fix if I don't have Apple Care?  How much would it cost to fix if I took it to the Apple store. 
    I ask because a friend of mine got a brand new phone when his home button was broken and it was outside of the guarantee.
