I just fixed the power/volume ribbon on the iPad2. The screen is really dark now. I took the glass and digitizer off with no problem then the LCD as usual. But when I replaced the ribbon and assembled it the screen is really dark. I can see that the power button works now so I know that is connected right. I have unplugged and plugged in the LCD numerous times but no change in the results. I also hard reset it with no avail. Please advise. Thanks

Have you tried going into Settings->Brightness & Wallpaper, turning off Auto-Brightness and adjusting it with the slider?

Check the brightness in settings. that is probably the issue... or the ambient light sensor.

Yes, go to setting Brightness and unmark auto Brightness option and set brightness on full level.
