This could be just a bad digitizer. If you purchased this unit off ebay or amazon, it is most likely a cheap product. If you have followed all the steps on ifixit on how to replace your digitizer and you still have no touch, it is most likely a bad digitizer. Did you have touch capability with the original broken glass?

Buying quality parts are worth the price.

Before assuming it is a bad digitizer, try reattaching the flex cables. Make sure that they are COMPLETELY attached. I've changed a few iPads and the touch wouldn't work because the flex cable wasn't completely attached.


I purchased the screen from here (iFixit). We have followed all the steps (several times) including reattaching cables and such. The original broken glass worked fine, just cracked.


@tantonivich The front piece is the digitizer which does all the touch work, all parts can be faulty and all parts can be damaged during installation no matter where they are from, try another digi
