I am looking to buy a used iPad from somebody local at a big discount due to the fact that it has dark spots along the bottom of the display.

Has anybody had any experience with the same issue?
If I were to buy it it'd be on the premise of being able to repair it relatively cheap.

I've read online that it could be something as simple as the display ribbon cable needing re-seating?

Any advice or insight would be appreciated! Dom
