Smart cover sensors (Hall Effect) too sensitive after new digitizer
So I have replace the digitizer on two different iPads now, and both have exhibited the same behavior. After replacement the Apple smart cover now affects the sleep/awake sensors from the BACK of the iPad. So when you fully flip back the cover, it will actually shut the iPad OFF. Both of these iPads used a smart cover before the repair with no issues. The first one I did, I wasn't able to troubleshoot as the adhesive was already in place before we discovered the issue. But for the second one, I left it "apart" with the new screen to test.
Oddly, even if I fully disconnect the new digitizer, and put it far away, the smart cover still shuts the iPad off and on from the back. So that tell me that it has nothing to do with the new digitizer. So I then took two magnets, and tried to play with the sensors. Reading many articles, it appears that the Air 1 requires TWO magnets to be in place for the awake/sleep functions to work. However, in my case, I only need to use ONE magnet over the right-most trigger point to make the iPad turn on/off. It's like the one next to the home button doesn't do anything anymore (or more accurately, constantly sees a field). Any ideas what is causing this? I was thinking heat (from removing the glass), but these components are pretty deep in.
Is this a good question?
