Title:

Is the 3rd Time A Charm for our Ipad 2 A1395?

Text:

I made an attempt to change my kids Ipad 2 digitizer which he cracked rather than pay to have it done which runs around 100 bucks, on my first attempt I cracked the replacement,not sure when, all I know is the top was cracked after I got done installing it, on the second attempt I managed to install it without cracking it, but the ribbon that is supposed to get tucked in got bent too much and the Ipad wasn't fully responsive as is to be expected. I got it tucked in but after a bit it became totally unresponsive, I found out the ribbon was nicked so I think that's what did it. I have purchased both digitizers from reputable Ebay sellers, these are not OEM. So far I'm out around $25 bucks, I believe the 3rd time will be a charm but I have been reluctant to buy another non OEM screen since I understand the failure rate is higher, any thoughts other than don't DIY, which as I stated is not in the budget.

Thanks
