New Screen Cover Not Sticking

Hi, I replaced the volume/audio ribbon and dock connector in my iPad2. After finishing everything and putting the new glass cover, everything worked great, looked great, was happy. But I noticed that after a short while, the edge of the glass cover is peeling off and separating from the edges (pic).

The new screen had pre-applied 3M 300LSE tape. I really don't want to risk removing the screen and breaking it... what are my options?

Is this a good question?

That tape is useless try using this instead Red Tape you wont break the screen if you use that 3M 300LSE tape you applied use a heat gun to remove the screen you will be fine.

Thanks for this. Will try to find locally, not sure if I can. All these shipping charges and exchange rates is adding up!


Finally got the 5mm red tape. I didn't need to use the heat gun to remove the screen, it popped right out (that adhesive was very cheap indeed). Applied the red tape, left overnight and glass was still as it should this morning. Winner. Smartcover sensor not working, but I can do without.
