- It's integrated into the display, so you'll need to replace the LCD.
- Make sure that all removable parts of the logic board such as RAM and the airport card are removed. Then, take out all the screws that you see on the logic board.
- The only thing that is semi-interchangeable are the side buttons, and even those don't work great as the colors are different.
- I believe it does. you should put it back in the frame for testing.
- It's the board. If both the keyboard/trackp
ad and the logic board aren't working, it's not worth fixing. It's probably a better idea at this point to buy a new one.
- If it's not from Apple or iFixit, then the battery can easily have issues. Get one from iFixit.
- If the screen or glass are cracked, replace the display assembly. If it's just the corner, you can try pliers.
- Have you tried restoring the OS? Does it work when it's plugged into a wall charger?
- You can try reseating the connector. However, the LED backlight is built into the display.
- Have you checked that the keyboard and mouse are working properly? Otherwise, you probably have an issue with the bluetooth board.

I think the repairability score is too high. The iPads get lower repairability scores, yet the batteries are not soldered on, the glass and display are not fused together, and there are more removable components.
