    Has anyone else gotten any bugs stuck between the LCD and the touchscreen? My daughter freaked out the other day, telling me there wan an ant in her ipad2 screen over facetime. She was hoping I could see her screen. :eek:

    When I got home... sure enough, there was a small ant lodged between the LCD and the touchscreen! I had to heat up the side edge with a heat gun and get a thin strip of plastic in there to swipe out the ant.

    I agree. That's crazy that that happened. They would have at least given you a new iPad 2.

    LOL...

    Unfortunately this one was purchased broken on eBay and I replaced the screen and 30 pin connector. Apple would have just laughed at me.

    I sealed up the replacement screen real good and there was no room for a bug to get in that way. I was wondering if the replacement screen had anything to do with it or if this could happen with the original screen too.

    Original probably not, unless there was a flaw like a gap in the edge-lilkley there was one with the replacement screen.

    It could have gotten in with the replacement screen or while you were replacing the screen and the curious unfortunate soul happened to crawl into the housing, only to be sealed in.
