Apple Pencil not working after screen replacement

Hi,

I've replaced a cracked lcd/digitizer assembly on an iPad Pro 12.9" device and the client says the apple pencil doesnt work with the new screen.

Anyone else experience the same fault?

have you tried re-pairing it? I assume each screen has a unique identifier in it. It would kinda, almost make sense that re-pairing would fix it.

The client informed us the pen doesn't work, however it does but there dead zones on certain areas on the screen.

I'm going to try a new screen, will update when done.

Installed a new digitizer and everything tested fine. During final assembly, backlight connector came off daughter board. Didn't realize this until it booted up. Thought a backlight chip maybe had been fried. Relieved to see that it was just a connector. After powering off and rechecking all connections. Started the unit up and now zero touch. Solder job was perfect. At a loss as to what the issue is now. Very little information out there on this.

Apparently when you have an Apple Pencil in the box without being charged for a prolonged period of time it loses it functionality and no longer pairs with the device. The apple store is charging me $79.99 for a replacement unit which is a not terrible but what a shame I paid that on eBay for a defective unit. Wish I would have bought it in the apple store the first time.
