Ipad 2 help, broken chip!

So i have 2 iPads that I am working on at the moment and had a few questions and pictures for reference. The first iPad I am working on is a wifi iPad 2 with a bad black light. What happened was, an unprofessional repair was done on it and the device wasn't shut off before being worked on and shorted the black light chip. Now I know that the chip will needed to be replaced and resoldered but where can i buy the back light chip to preform this repair?
Second iPad i am working on is another iPad 2. i was replacing the screen and when disconnecting the LCD connector I saw a chip right behind the connector was lose and I touched it and it came undone. Now when I try to power on the iPad all i get is a blacklit screen and it makes noise, but you can not see any icons or logos. You can also hear the iPad. I tested it and checked it with another LCD and the same problem arose so i have narrowed it down to that chip breaking off is the cause. Where can i get this chip also?
board without broken chip
sorry i know the pictures are not the best but the broken chip is the first picture where you sort of see red and no 4th chip
Please give me any tips and tricks on doing these repairs as well
Thanks for your help and input!

I'd start by looking at ifixit.com
You'll find good teardown descriptions and pictures as well as links to replacement partsNot been around these parts for a while. Trying to change that . .

I also have a very similar issue...the digitizer was replaced by someone and now everything works except the lcd shows a green hue. I have discovered that one of the lcd filters is missing and must have came dislodged from the logic board during replacement. After attempting to transplant a filter from an ipod touch 4th generation to no avail, i have decided to sit and wait until i come across a dead ipad to steal the filter from. I have included pictures of the lcd connector with no chip and with one soldered on. (This is a different chip then yours)
We just need to get these chips...then we will be all set. Let me know if you find anything!
