Replacement Digitizer, wifi antenna, and volume/power assembly
I opened my ipad2 in order to replace the wifi antenna. I made sure to keep the digitizer/screen intact when removing. Success. However, I clipped the ribbon for the volume/power buttons. I made the wifi antenna replacement, reinstalled the lcd and the digitizer and plugged the device in to the wall to make sure the iPad powers and everything works well as I wait for another volume/power assembly to arrive in the mail. Now the digitizer doesn't seem to be responding to finger swipes. Is this a simple digitizer replacement problem now or did I do something else to damage the device? Can I replace the digitizer (I have a replacement on hand) while the device is powered or do I have to wait until the battery dies as I can't power down the device with a broken power button? Thanks for the help- I'm obviously a novice.
Is this a good question?
