Hi, my name is Phillip. And today I am going to bring you a gadget mechanics repair tipof the week. If you repair a lot of iPads, especially the iPad 2, you have encountered a problem withthe LCD either flickering, distorting colors or not showing a picture. This problem isnot necessarily a bad LCD or the cable. You’ll be surprised how simple the solution is to The Pella Insynctive family of smart products can help keep your home’s security, comfort and convenience… this problem. When an iPad screen flickers, shows distorted colors or doesn’t show a picture, you immediatelyassume its a bad LCD or LCD cable and proceed to replace the screen.
Sometimes this doesn’t solve the problem either. Well, I think we have the solution, electrical tape. First, turn off the ipad. Next, remove the iPad glass and unscrew LCD. Next, disconnect the LCD cable. Disconnect the cable on the LCD too. How to Deck the Halls for the Holidays Now, get some electrical tape.
Cut a small piece and place it on the edges of the port. Make sure to not cover the opening that the cable slides into. Lay down the latch over the small pieces of electrical tape. You will notice that the latch is slightly hard to push down. The tape is putting pressure on the connector, givingit a better contact. Place the black sticker over the latch, if there is none, use electrical tape. Do the same thing on the port on the motherboard.
Insert the LCD cable into the port. Push thelatch down and place a piece of electrical tape over the connector. Finally, return the LCD, screws and glass and re-adhesive the glass back to the frame. If done correctly, the LCD should be working perfectly and you will not see any issueswith the image anymore. This issue is common only on the iPad 2. The connection gets weak over time and causesLCD image distortion. If you see this issue with iPad 3 on up and the iPad minis, youcannot use this technique because they do not use the metal latch system on the connectors.
This has worked on 100’s of iPad LCD’s and has had a 95% success rate.
