    Hi all

    I replaced the outer glass / digitizer on my ipad 2 last night. It all went great, the glue softened nicely and the cracked screen came off pretty easily. However, when I put the new parts in the touch only responds along the right side of the ipad in a very thin strip. I tried making sure the cable was fully inserted and it made no difference. Is there anything else you think I may be missing or do I perhaps have a faulty new screen?

    Thanks

    Scott

    I would guess a faulty screen. I had a similar issue when replacing the digitizer on my last phone.

    I don't see lots of post here with people talking about replacing their screens in their iPads. I would suggest, with the idea of you getting the best possible support with your problem, to contact the folks you bought the replacement from. They should have some tips and perhaps some troubleshooting guidelines to give you. It could be a simple has not having a cable connection properly seating....which would mean you need to go back in a recheck everything. I would imagine that, if you have a defective screen, they are going to want you to verify via some troubleshooting first before sending you a replacement.

    Thanks for all the replies.

    I have sent an email off to the folks who sold me the screen. I have double checked the cable and it is nice and snugly plugged in and still the same issue. hopefully get a replacement that works

    Cheers
    Scott
