Welp, consider first that you might buy the ebay item, spend a day installing it and NOT fix the problem.

You dont need a 'dealer', but you do need an actual diagnosis.... IMO

Somehow or another my steering column automatically fixed itself and is now working again after stopping for over 6 months. Works perfectly now, what the hell???

I had an ipad 7th gen...went into a reboot loop. Nothing would fix it, all sorts of specialized tools. Would keep rebooting between black and apple logo, until the battery died...Apple said 'hardware error- scrap. We'll give you $25 for trade"

I bought a new ipad. Toss the old one on our charging stand with all the other old items..not even sure why I did it. 2 months later.....

Wife was cleaning up, and bumped it- just slightly. It came to life with a "Hello". it was a blank, 'ready to configure' ipad.


Just saying.
