Ipad3g dead, was crushed

I received an iPad3g that was ran over. While the display and touch panel were broken, the internal parts did not look bad. I cleaned it up and put it back together. The display shoes white light so I ordered a new display and touch pad. I put it all together doublecheching all connections but now it is dead. While it was apart I tested the battery pack and it tested good. Prior to taking it apart I had put the new screen and noticed that the battery was almost dead as the display worked but when I attempted to charge the unit overnight it did not charge. Also, it did not get detected by my laptop and I tunes diagnostics could not communicate with it. Does anyone have any schematics with testing points I can use to diagnose? Note I disassembled this device down to the shell in order to reform the warped shell.

Thanks

JCM, schematics for any Apple device are a very rare commodity. It sounds to me like all of your errors are leading to the dock connector. I would start with that one and work from there.

Update

JCM, good luck with your repair. I hope it will work out for you. The same diagram is available at pinout.ru and has some more information as well ;-)

Thanks oldturkey03. I found out there is a storefront near me and it is listed as being an authorized Apple repair shop. Il see if I catch them on Monday and see if they can guide me so wish me luck..I actually found pin-outs for the connector on some music site where a guy customizes an IPad, here is the blog link which can come handy. http://gfgsm.blogspot.com/2011/02/apple-...

Some of those pinouts will be useful and I also found some more,thanks. I went to the Apple authorized repair place and it was a joke. They said that IPads are not repairable just swappable through Apple. I thought that a few years ago the FTC or commerce dept had created a law that stated certain consumer products needed to be supported by the manufacturer but I could be wrong. I pulled the pins off one of the connectors yesterday taking it apart again :( so now I have a liitle more to work on soldering tiny pins. The dock cable is a little costly to purchase so I may just have to put the project on the side if I can't figure the wiring for troubleshooting. I'll see if some else gives me another broken one and swap parts out to narrow down the problem.

If you decide it's not worth a fix, I found a student that is looking for a BAD logic board for a school project ... for the right price you could get it off your hands and help a young fellow geek out...

Any Body know where I can get a broken iPad Logic Board?
