Half of touch screen working

Hi,

My iPad mini 2 (A1489) has only half of its touch screen working.

I opened and verify the connectors: everything seems ok. No missing pins.

I think I see copper through a tiny dent in the cable from the digitizer to the logic board. Exactly where the cable folds.

Should I buy a new digitizer right away or is there any other thing I should check before buying that part?

Also, anything I should look for to avoid buying a bad touch screen? I saw prices range from 10$ to 30$

Can I easily buy a screen without IC connector and just take it from my old screen?

(I am trying to fix this on a budget...)

Thanks!

It sounds like the dent in the ribbon is your problem - I'm afraid you need to bite the bullet and order that new digitiser unless your day job is as a brain surgeon! It'll come complete with the ribbon and connector so you can't save anything by transferring a connector from the old one - even if you were a whizz at microsoldering and competent to do so.

As for which to go for, my general rule is avoid the very top of the market - you may be being overcharged for an OEM product which is no better than an aftermarket one, and avoid the bottom - it may be rubbish. And make sure you go for a vendor who has a credible returns policy.
