Guides for the Wi-Fi version of the iPad Mini 2. Announced October 22nd and released November 12th, 2013. The iPad mini 2, also known as the iPad mini with Retina Display, has all the pixels of the iPad Air in a smaller 7.9" form factor.

My iPad Mini 2 display has lines on it.

iPad Mini 2 Model A1489

My iPad has been dropped multiple times in the past 3 years or so, although none of them has cause any kind of significant damage, until some time ago, my my iPad would suddenly has thin lines on the screen and experience some kind of image persistence. Most of the time, it was fixed when I restarted it, so I hadn't paid any attention to it. I thought it was a software glitch.

Yesterday, while playing games, it did this, but now, even when I restarted it, when I erased all settings, and even tapped on the back mltiple times, the lines didnt go away, although there is no more image persistence.

Everything works well, no lag, no bug, touch works fine, I can still play games or watch videos, the only problem are those lines.

On these pictures, you can see those large white lines and those small pixel like lines.

Ok so I just sold an iPad on the app called offer up and the guy i sold it to said that it was broken. Since the app doesn't allow to send pics through messages I told him to post it as if hes selling it, it looks similar to this but without the pixel distortion at the top. In my time of ownership of the iPad (ipad mini 2nd gen) this has never happened. Please help.

There isn't in my opinion a straight answer.

First, you need to try a new screen.

Then you need to examine the connector.

Then you need to test voltages at the connectors (digitizer connector and LCD connector), you need to examine a few power rails, and finally you need to press down on the CPU and see if something changes.

My guess is it's the LCD itself, so step 1. But I've seen other instances where a board level failure would cause image distortions.

This guide shows you how to remove the screen. It's a difficult task for the untrained DIYer and it carries a high risk of damaging both the outer glass and the inside LCD, as well as the Touch ID cable (home button cable) when the model has it (Mini 3 and up). If you decide to do it, take it slow and be gentle and patient every step of the way.

Before you go so far as to remove the screen, try this handy trick I just found on YouTube (link below):

1. Turn off the iPad.

2. Place the iPad face down on a hard surface with something on it to keep from scratching the screen.

3. Knock on the back of the iPad.

That's it! I just used that to fix a screen that was even crazier than yours.

Im a phone repair guy. a Customer brought an iPad mini with broken digitizer . I replaced the digitizer, turned the iPad On now, the screen is exactly as it is shown above. All I can say that it is not either damaged LCD or digitizer. it is something either connectors or software issue. Still trying to fix it. by the way, tapping is NOT gonna work in this situation.
