Ipad 8 not charging after screen replacement, though port still works

Hello! I’m a bit stuck with this one:

I recently did a screen/digitizer replacement on an iPad 8. While tricky, I managed to get everything neatly reattached and reassembled. The only uncertainty I had with this repair was disconnecting the battery, the only method I found online was to slip a non-conductive card of some sort (i used a plastic sheet) in between the battery connector and battery to sever the connection (since there is no other way to disconnect it without removing the battery)

Anyway, iPad booted back up and everything worked as it should, until I went to charge it. Upon connecting a lightning cable, there is no charging indicator and the battery symbol is still red.

However:

  • When turned off, plugging the ipad into a charger turns the ipad on
  • When plugged into a computer, it recognizes the iPad.

Any idea as to what happened here, and how I go about fixing it? my only guess is to disassemble it again, completely remove the battery and fully separate the connection, then reassemble.

Thanks

Ive had this issue on the old Air 2. The way we fix this is by reinstalling iPadOS on there. If you can get the device into DFU and do a full reinstall that may help.

Apple just released an update for most of their products. If you go into recovery, try to update it and see what happens.

Do you have any way of reading the power draw while plugged in?

I actually ended up just stripping it down again, undoing and redoing the battery connection and it starting working again. My guess is some pins on the connector weren't aligned, but in research I found that they're really easily breakable when you try to sever power.

Thanks for the answer though!
