Power Button won't work
Got a broken screen iPad 2, ordered the parts and did the repair myself. I have done multiple iPad 2 screens, so I am pretty familiar with it. This time, however, I seemed to have clipped the Power Button/Volume Button flex cable when getting the broken screen off. Went ahead and bought a new cable. Just installed it so that I could get the iPad back together and came across a really weird issue. Actually I ordered 2 power button flex cables. When I put it on and clipped it in the volume buttons work and the mute switch works, but the power button does not. I unplugged it from the board and plugged it back in. Nothing. Cannot get it to bring up power off info and cannot get it to lock/unlock. Tried the 2nd cable I purchased thinking maybe it was a bad cable...same exact thing. Any ideas?
Apparently the flex cable was defective. Supplier sent new ones and they work great. Thanks!
I removed the portion of the logic board where the power flex cable connects and unplugged and reconnected the cable. Same thing as before happened. Tried the other cable as well to no avail. I went ahead and contacted the supplier. They are sending new cables. Thank you.
it may be a properly fitting problem inside the ipad. dismantle the ipad and take out the power cable from the ipad. attach everything together not to put back inside . just leave it there on the it . then try to use power button outside . if that working then try to make a proper fitting inside that switch. if still not working the power button then it may be a that flex or may be you had damage anything on the logic baord . upload the picture of logic board with high resolution to check anything happen to board or not . Best of luck
