So I'm fixing an iPad 2 for a client. I ordered the new digitizer and have the original one removed. I installed the new one, and everything works aside for it won't power on or off using the power button. The home button won't work either. I heard that you need to hard reset it first, so I tried that, but no go. It won't do it. So, any ideas of what is going on here? Could it be a faulty digitizer? Could the home button be stopping the power button from working? You might think it's the flex cable that is ripped for the home button, but the mute / volume buttons work fine, and those are all part of the same flex cable. What is going on here? Any ideas before I order a new digitizer assuming this one is just faulty? Could this be causing the problem?
