Multiple problems after screen replacement

(1) When screen is on, there's backlight bleed: I can see the light from 5 LEDs along the edge of the screen. (At first, I thought he'd misaligned the replacement screen.)

(2) The screen turns off and won't come back on until I force restart (Home+Power)

(3) Digitizer is unresponsive around the edges. (I have to flip the screen-sometimes several times-to close a tab, type an "A", use spacebar, caps lock, or Enter.)

1 & 3 were immediately apparent after the screen replacement. 2 started a few days later. I ordered the screen + digitizer pre-assembled (without Home button) from a reliable vendor we've bought from before.

This is so frustrating, I can barely stand using it. Everything takes 3x longer. My husband was emboldened to try this by multiple successful cellphone screen replacements.

Questions:

Could (1 and 2) mean he could've accidentally burned the backlight filters? If so, are they replaceable, or is there a workaround? Will I be handing over our firstborn to Apple in exchange for repairs? Or, is my iPad bricked?

What could be causing 3?

Thanks in advance for any advice.

possibly a faulty lcd it happens, probably not the suppliers fault but you should ask for a replacement

Thanks, but it's too late for that, thanks to hubby's policy of aging everything. (In other words, he PROCRASTINATES.). It's going to a pro next. Strange, though, how the screen turns off and won't turn back on (which is WHY it's going to the shop).

LCD has gone bad, need replacement if you want to fix the 3 noticeable dark light spots on sides of screen.

I wasn't being sarcastic - just blunt. If you don't want to help, or don't have time to read what I wrote, don't respond. I was very careful to include all the relevant info in my post precisely so there WOULDN'T be a lot of questions back & forth. This is the only working device I have right now, and I need it to work. Using it is absolutely maddening; I have to keep flipping the %#*@ thing so the keys I need to use work. That post, which would've normally taken me less than 5 minutes to type, took OVER AN HOUR - and I'm NOT a patient person. How would YOU feel?
