LCD failure after digitizer replacement

Hi Guys,

I've replaced a dozen or so apple screens and ran into my first problem. I had a pretty standard cracked digitizer. Removed and hooked up the new one. Unfortunately, when I power on the iPad I see a grey vertical band about 1 inch wide centered from the top to the bottom of the screen. I do not have any picture other than the wide band. After some time passes, the band widens into multiple vertical lines, and they disperse across the screen.

troubleshooting:

I've done a soft reset with power button and home button 4 times

I've done a hard reset "I think" by un screwing the battery and putting picks under it for 5 minutes

I've detached and reattached the lcd multiple times.

It seems unlikely to me that I damaged the digitizer cable, though I suppose its possible.

I did not undo the battery prior to replacing which I know would have been smarter, so that could be it.

Any ideas? Thanks in advance

Answer this question I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

Did you resolve this issue? I've had exactly the same as you've described after replacing the digitiser. I assumed I had damaged the LCD so replaced it but the new one just comes on completely white with a few random lines down the right hand side of the screen.

Disconnect the battery.

Double check the connector on the flex of the LCD and the connector on the board - checking for any bent pins.

If they all appear fine then test a new LCD to see if your getting the same result.
