No backlight and LCD replacement didn't fix it.
Ipad2 was dropped. Worked fine, despite digitizer glass being shattered. Carefully disassembled and installed new Digitizer. Before sealing the digitizer in place, I tested unit. Discovered LCD backlight was not working. Reseated all cables. No change. Inspected for any visible damage, found none. Replaced LCD with known working unit and still no backlight on iPad.
What else could be wrong?
I have a third broken iPad coming to my department for repair. This time, I am going to let the battery drain 100% before anything is disassembled.
folks, I appreciate your time posting 1) disconnect the battery 2) reset iOS.
These things have been discussed here at length and have not resolved the problem.
my iPad issue is still not resolved.
as I reflect on my disassembly, I have considered I did something different the second time around on repair. The first time, I used a plastic scribe to release the LCD cable from the system board. Second time around, I used the mini-screw driver from the kit to pop up the retainer. Reflecting on my actions, and knowing better, that probably created a short across contacts and damaged the system board, despite being careful. Course, I am just guessing, but that was a difference between the two repairs I did...the first ipad repair being successful, the second, not so successful.
Is this a good question?
