Damaged Digitizer FPC Connector Huh?

Damaged FPC Connector again? Wondering what you are doing wrong? Don’t worry you are not alone. I have damaged a few iPad Mini 2nd Gen FPC connectors. Even though it didn’t really seem like it was  something I did wrong they still break. I have been unplugging and plugging in Screens the same way since I started doing repairs on iPad Mini 1’s. We noticed that many techs have also faced this issue on iPad Mini’s. Many changing the way they are unplugging the Screen only to find themselves still damaging the FPC Connector.

This is a very typical problem that happens with the iPad Mini’s. More so on the iPad Mini 2nd Gen that I have noticed and have replaced many FPC’s on. So don’t beat yourself up over it. The Digitizer connector is more or less just a weak connector that breaks easily. Most of the time you will notice that the pins are lifted up or broken off. The pins could be get stuck onto the Screen Connector and when unplugging the screen it is pulling the Pins from the Connector.
