Note: Having the screen replaced on an iPad Air 2 may result in the loss of automatic sleep/wake function with compatible cases & smart cases.
If your device fails to take a charge then it could be a fault with the charging port (where the cable plugs in to). If the device wont charge, or charges intermittently, then a replacement charging port is required. If there is some indication of charge going in but the device will not power on, it may be a battery fault.
If you cannot hear anything with headphones plugged in to your device, the audio jack will need replacing.
If you can only hear audio with headphones plugged in, this may also be a faulty audio jack. Without headphones in, use the volume keys to turn the volume up or down. If the volume symbol has 'Headphones' written above it, its a fault with the audio jack.
If your home button has become unresponsive, it can be replaced.
Note: A replacement home button will result in the permanent loss of Touch ID functionality, as the original home button is uniquely coded to match the logic board. You will not be able to use your fingerprint to unlock the screen or use Apple Pay. It is possible that your Touch ID may already be faulty if the home button is not working; but if not; it is up to you to decide which function you would rather have.
