Folded ribbon cable iPad mini

Hey I had to reopen an iPad mini that I repaired. At first it was fine then it started going crazy. I also put capton tape across the bottom. My question is: if I resold the ribbon cable is it going to be ok or is the damage done?

Its almost always the IC on the digi flex cable. Its usually better to slap on a new digi and move on with your life. Its possible to desolder and resolder that chip. I did it one time to say I did it, then never touched another one. The risk v time v reward just isn't there.

Thanks josh. I was hoping to return it to my customer today. I will give it a good test and see. I did have the ribbon cable folded a bit. I need to find a better source for digis.


Mobile Defenders and Group Vertical are both solid suppliers. Also, sign up for an iFixit Pro account and get a discount on iFixit parts.


Great info! I did sign up for the pro account too. Will see what shipping to Canada is like.
