first IPAD2 screen repair

by ifix

My Problem

I broke my daughters ipad screen so I had to fix it.

local repair shop wanted almost as much as a new ipad mini to replace the screen .

My Fix

in the end it went well , but i sliced the wifi cable so had to replace that too.

speaker cable also was a PITA and the crimps came away from the connector - but went back in ok and were taped with a little strip of kapton to keep them in place

careful reassembly , and everything works :)

My Advice

watch out for the wifi cables!

also dont panic if you make a mess , usually you can fix it
