jackieandbarry, Click on the link below, 12 Categories will come up, click on your model Ipad, from there, one or more models may show click on yours, from there you will see guides on disassembly, to show how to get to ribbon cables/connectors inside your device, to ensure they are on properly connected and you can re-seat. Good luck.

I hope this helped you out, if so let me know by pressing the helpful button.

Don't just assume its that so quickly; try some diagnostics first.


Which iPad is this even.

This is the most crucial question in the entire thread.

LCD cable needs to be cleaned and reseated in most cases.
