Hit the corner of the Ipad2 near the Headphone Jack, this trick worked for me and a few other people on the apple forum.

I would first check the LCD's connection to the logic board, and the cable's connection to the LCD. If the connections are good, then it's likely your LCD is bad. Be VERY careful when removing the digitizer. If it's not damaged, you don't want to break it when removing it to check the connection, or replace the LCD. Good luck!
