Title:

Touch not working after replacing glass ipad mini 2

Text:

I got a iPad Mini 2. The digitizer and LCD were both broken. So I changed the LCD and it is working fine. I tested the ipad before closing it but the touch screen does not respond, or it responds strangely. I have tried now with 4 different digitizers with same result. And I have not bent the cable (I know all about that). Take a look at a video I took here: https://www.dropbox.com/s/8z63y3t1rqsr18l/ipad_mini2.mp4?dl=0
 
I checked the digitizer connector and it seems fine. What am I doing wrong?
 
As you see when I press the touch screen the area is marked with at box. I was now able to get past the first screen but when I press the keyboard on the screen the keys are marked with a border around the key but nothing shows in the password field.
 
**UPDATE**
 
I tried to put back the original digitizer to test it even if it is broken. No better luck. But now the iPad boots to the Apple logo and then goes black. I have to unplug the battery and start up again and the same thing happens, Apple logo - then black! What the heck is happening?

Like I wrote in my comment down under everything is working now!
