    I have a problem with my iPad 2 power source. The iPad will turn off with movement or power down with the slightest of movement. I opened my iPad and replaced the wifi and replaced the digitizer screen. I checked the connections before sealing it up.

    I'm not sure what the source of the problem is. Is anyone able to offer me any advice? The problem seems simple. I wonder if I am bending or kinked the digitizer cable when before closing and feeling good feeling it. Please help I miss my I Pad 2. Warranty damaged since I opened it.

    There is may be a problem with the connection to the battery, you may have accidentally loosened or damaged it.

    I apologize in advance, but cannot understand why someone would open up a iPad while it is still under warranty. I've replaced 3 broken screens on families iPhones and 1 screen on my grandsons iPad1 when he managed to drop and crack the screen, but they were all outside the warranty, so it was worth the gamble as I have a little experience if you can call 40yrs as a TV/Video engineer before retiring experience..lol ..though brain has slowed down a lot since I still have the odd dabble.
    Just wondered ? were you unable to take it to a Apple centre or something?

    As the previous poster said.. it definately sounds like a poor connection, most likely one of those delicate low profile connectors is not making a good connection. I know how fragile they can be.

    Good day and happy turkey day. I tripped and cracked the screen and I didn't have that coverage and I decided to fix with help of youtube. It was easy and after going back again, it appears that cable is kink. I am healthcare professional by trade, but I figure it could be that difficult....and it really was not...
