Default Home Button is not working with Home screens

hey Galaxy Users,

here i have a small problem with my Home Button. When i am in one of my home screens, say screen 4 or screen 5 and if i press the home button, It should supposed to go to Homescreen 1. But from past few days, It is not happening. Even if i press the home button, im still in the screen 4 or 5. Is there any Fix for this?? Seriously the phone is amazing but these types of problems really irritating me.
some one kindly suggest me a solution here.

Thanks in advance

If you are in an app do you get returned to one of your home screens when you press the button?
Just trying to establish if it's a fault with the button itself.

What launcher are you using?
Perhaps you have not defined which screen number is your choice of home screen.
May be worth clearing defaults for your launcher app in settings>applications.

I am using go launcher so not sure if you can change settings like those for TW launcher. But if there is, try tap on the menu button and see if there are any choice for preferences or something like that. Best I think is to clear data and redo everything again. That usually clears up these type of issues.

Go to settings/manage applications/all/TW launcher and clear data. Remember it will reset to original settings so make a note where everything like widgets and shortcuts is.

Cheers

First off... Go Launcher have a lot of settings including setting which is the main home screen. That said, I don't know if your problem will translate to Go Launcher since you haven't identified the root cause of your issue.

Have you found any settings for the TW launcher? Or have you did the clear data option?

Cheers

hey russell,
Yes i have cleared data in TW launcher. But as i said, immediately after clearing data, for one time it worked fine. But when i tried again, it failed. I dont know what was the prob. if it was with home button, then it shud not work completely. but it is functioning properly when coming out of an app or other thing. just wth home scree case, it is showing some problem.

Then I don't think I can help you. Maybe someone else can. I did think there were no special place for TW settings. Maybe another launcher will be useful.

Good luck

Actually if you are using the stock launcher (TouchWiz) then going to screen 4 or 5 is in fact what it does by default IF you are already in TW. If you are anywhere else eg. the app draw or an application, the home button goes back to the last home screen you were on prior. Then if you press it again it goes to page 4.

It never goes to page 1 by default you have to drag it there?
