Hi, 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).
