Title:

iPad LCD is probably broken, is it easy to replace?

Text:

Recently when I turned my iPad on, i saw that two thirds of its screen keep black. After a while the dark spots change their color. Although the touchscreen is still working even on the broken spots, it's pretty useless without a functional display.

My question is:

Is it just the LCD which is broken or is it worse (Logic Board, etc.)?

Second question:

If I want to replace the LCD myself, do I need a replacement specifically for the 3G iPad or can I use a replacement labeled as (WiFi) iPad LCD?

Device:

iPad 3G
