    Ok so what did I break or do wrong here? Would this be related to where the digitizer flex cable connects into those two black housings? Or is there another type of cable that I maybe ripped or broke.

    The iPad works fine other than:

    The lock button doesn't work. Doesn't turn on or off.
    And
    The up volume button doesn't work.

    Also, my buddy said that his black case would turn it off when closing the lid. (Not a smart case). It doesn't now and I didn't think it would do that but maybe that is related. Everything else works and looks great.

    Please help me out guys/gals!? I've already ordered new double sided tape and have been looking at the different parts it could be to replace.

    You should probably have another look to see if anything appears damaged. Check all cables and connectors are properly connected.

    I did see that where the digitizer flex cable goes into, the top of the plastic housing that kind of holds the cable down was cracked. You flip up the back sides of these so that the ribbon cable can slide in and then you lock them down. They did lock down and stay in but the again, 1 side had the plastic cracked. Would this actually cause the problems I'm having?? Please don't answer if your not absolutely sure. I don't want anyone to just say yes because it makes sense. It seemed like that ribbon seated fine even though the plastic was cracked. Is there something else that I damaged or is this port hole for the digitizer flex cable.

    I wouldn't think the digitizer flex cable has anything to do with the volume button and lock button not working. I'm thinking there's another issue I caused that's stopped the lock and volume button from working.

    You may have to replace the power/mute/volume flex. It's a common problem when opening up the ipad.

    Wait! Which flex cable do I need? Lol. There's 2 styles, a normal version and then a after 2012 version. My pad doesn't have that black bar thing across the top like I see some do.... .??

    Not flex cable, the power/volume cable.

    There's actually a 2012 version believe it or not and it has an updated power cable. Weird that apple doesn't show this version but you can sure order parts for it.... Figure that out.... I'm hoping mines the first version which fits both the models you listed above.
