My Problem

It looked like my daughter dropped her IPad from a two story window but it was only from her bed. She likes to read from it to fall asleep! Alas, no carpet flooring just tile. The tile wins!

My Fix

The instructions online were terrific and clear. The front panel was so shattered the guitar picks were not enough so I also used an exacto knife. But in doing so I cut the Wi-Fi antenna. No problem though I followed the suggestion and ordered one to send back. When everything was together again the screen shook and acted erratic. I was frustrated then but to the rescue the troubleshoot section of instructions told me to check the connection and un-kink the flat part to the screen (see how technical I am?). It worked, the IPad works, I'm happy, my daughter is happy, what could be better? CARPET!

My Advice

It helps that I have taken apart many electrical components. Before doing such a repair find an old junk amplifier, radio, computer and take it apart for fun!
