I replaced my digitizer screen, my Ipad 3 powers up and I have access to applications. Now the Video LCD screen has a one inch white block with a black strip in the middle. The white and black block out is in the middle of screen and is displayed landscape and in vertical position. Is there any software or settings fix for this problem other than replacing the LCD video screen?

Try reconnecting all the cables inside of the iPad.

Aside from that, you're kind of in a tough place. I'd sell it on eBay - just cut your losses, and get another one.

Thank you for your response. I did reconnect the video feed and I am still getting the the white/black line. I have no problem buying a new Ipad 3 LCD video replacement for $60. Do you feel that my problem is with the Video LCD screen or connector feed? This is where I am at a pause, The video screen was working fine before I replaced the cracked digitizer screen. I feel I might of over heated the connector or screen getting the cracked digitizer screen off. I can easily re-install a new video screen. I have not resealed the IPad with the New Digitalizer screen, pending a technical assessment. All the applications work great on the ipad, except for 1 1/2 inch block. See photo attachment. Thanks for any other advice.

Hey there. Unfortunately, I don't know really any more than you do about this. My best guess is that a new (or used, it doesn't matter really) panel would fix it. I'm not sure what caused it... not really all that much of an expert, just a fellow "prosumer" I guess. Like I'm not a true pro, but I know a fair bit more than your average joe. I'd give it a shot... I mean, it can't really hurt. It's basically unusable as of now.

Best of luck man, I hope it pans out well for you. :):apple::apple::apple:
