This can happen when the cable is not completely seated into the connector or the connector latch pops off. When the latch pops off I have been able to cut a piece of a screen protector and wedge in on top of the flex cable. I doubt your part is bad I do this for a living and have never had a ipad digitizer that was bad. I have had iphone and ipod digitizers bad before though. I would also check for any damage to the flex cable.
