been using my iPad mini 2 for well over a year with no problems, until a week ago. i took it out of my pocket and all this black liquid is leaking under the glass. the iPad still works fine and i can still tap on things fine even if it under the black liquid. i can see hairline cracks in glass but you can't feel anything if i wipe my finger across them.

can this be fixed? what do i need to buy to fix it? will look on ebay

LCD's suffered impact damage. Not covered under warranty, unless you have AC+.

Depending on the age/gen (gen 1 or 2?) of the Mini, it may be more economically viable just to get a new one. Best take it to an Apple Store and see what the cost would be.
