All the 3 icons will not be displayed/ON when you are on the Home screen of the printer. This is as per the design.

 

To explain, when you are already on the home screen of the printer, there is no reason for the home icon to be lit up and the same with the back arrow button because you cannot go back from this screen.

 

These icons will lit up when you are not on the home screen. For example, tap any option on the printer like copy. Now the back and the home button will lit up.

 

Hope this answers your query! Keep me posted.
