Hello. Welcome to JustAnswer, a paid global support site.

Home button not working is a hardware issue. There is nothing you can do as far as software restore or key sequence to fix this.

More than likely the sensor is damaged that is under the button. This will require you to replace the motherboard of the iPad.

You might be able to take it to your nearest Apple Store Genius Bar ( and see if Apple will replace it under warranty. Worst case scenario will be they will charge you around $199-299 to replace the device itself.

There really aren't any other options.

Let me know if you need further assistance.
