I have an ipad 2 that might have the fuse blown I have a hot air station but I have no schematics so no idea as to what size fuse to replace with etc
I unplugged the lcd with out disconnecting battery and killed the back light.I have nothing to go on otherwise I would fix it myself.I have a hot air station microscope. no hot tweezers .I have not assembled the new digitizer
.I have digital and anolog multimeters and I know how to test diodes or most diodes

complimenti sei grandisima becato che non capisco inglese,,posso sapere come si chiama quel tool con due pinzete che fai le saldature ciaooo sei meravigliosaaaa

Patrik Floding says:

Nice video! It does get a little confusing because I think you use the terms "open" and "closed" in opposite to the conventional way? Also, you seem to give a resistance for the forward biasing of the diode, where you would want to measure the voltage drop, using the multimeter's diode measuring function. (Which may or may not work depending on surrounding circuitry.)
