    So I have the age old question of My iPad Mini 1 (iOS 8.something) has the black screen of DEATH!!!! BUMBUMBUUUUM
    How do I fix it?

    Unlike most people who have asked the question and have done nothing prior to asking, I have done all that I can find on the internet. This includes

    Plug it in for power - NOPE Nothing
    Reset it - Nope Nothing
    Hard reset - Nope Nothing
    Plug into iTunes and update/restore - Nope Nothing
    All the "software" tricks show up nothing on the screen. it stays black (not even a back light or apple loge etc.) and does not show up on iTunes.

    I have gone as far as pulling it apart and replacing the battery (which might I add wasn't as scary as most people make out to be) (this fixed my iPhone 4 but not my mini) and repeating all those steps above plus some with the same results

    Another possible symptom I have is that both the old/original battery and the new replacement one (after the screen went black) heat up and get quite warm.

    I am after real help here as there is no apple store near me for over 1000km's and repairs get done by me(and they would probably shrug it off anyway and tell me the steps I have already taken).

    With all the testing you've done and with the battery heating up like that, you've almost certainly got a hardware failure that's also shorting out the battery circuit somewhere. If you want to find out exactly what the problem is you'll have to take it to an Apple Store or a repair shop with the diagnostic equipment to diagnose the problem.
