Usually this means the ribbon cable didnt have tape over it to protect from shorts or you pinched the cable and caused a short in it.

I removed some yellow tape from over the home button on the new screen...should I put it back on?


yes also make sure you have no creases in the ribbon cable. It should be folded but not hard bends.


dude thanks so much! I was freaking out, never ran into that issue before...and fixing iPads is extremely stressful. You are a life saver


No problem. Ive been there. Its very frustrating.
