Repairing an issue where a 6th generation iPad's touch screen does not work.

  • iPad boots but does not respond to touch input.
  • Screen moves and selects things on its own, as if a ghost is using the device.


  • The digitizer connectors are very easy to damage on this model. If they are visibly damaged, replacing them fixes the issue.
  • If the connectors are flawless, the touch ICs may have cracked solder balls from the iPad being bent. Reflowing them often fixes the touch issues. If it does not resolve it, replace them.

NOTE: If the connectors are good, and replacing the touch ICs does not fix the issue, usually there are broken traces between the connectors and the touch ICs. This cannot be viably fixed.
