Hello,

i have an iPad Air 1 Gen LTE 16GB.

I bought it on eBay with an cracked digitizer and LCD.

After replacement there are some shadows/ waves on the left side.

What is this?

The old cracked screen had this also before..

Does anyone know how to fix this?

Looks like a backlight issue. If it is appearing on both the old and new LCD then it must be an issue on the logic board (backlight filter perhaps) which will require board level repair.
