My Problem

iPad 3 Wifi hit the floor landing with the bottom right hand corner - totally cracked glass, still worked. Seemed pointless to have it repaired or scrapped as long at there are better options like iFixit repair kits. Saw a TV-documentary from Britain "The men who made us spend" @ http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/p021z4w3 Here iFixit was mentioned and the philosophy behind the company was in line with my own view.

My Fix

Ordered the front panel, bezel and antenna, was amazed to see it arrive in just two days!! Spent some time looking through some videos and how-to´s - paying attention to the pitfalls.

Started the work spent 3-4 hours picking up glass pieces from the frame and cleaning the edge for the replacement parts. The enclosed tool kit worked fine, I used two butter knives to pry out the pieces and remove all the sharp bits. Didn't have the possibility to heat up the bag for loosening the glue, so I spent some more time with the butter knives.

Used some nail polish remover on a soft cloth to remove the old glue residue, also had a vacuum cleaner available to remove the small glass pieces.

A bit fiddly to glue on the tiny strips of double sided tape strips, but managed to attach them to the frame in correct order. Placing the bezel and assembly went fine.

My Advice

Should perhaps have had a magnifying glass and better work light, but in the end I got there, super happy with the result! @iFixit: Thank you for super service! @everybody: keep fixing things that are fixable, it just takes some of your time and patience - you can do it!

My Problem

A client of mine dropped her iPad 3 from a counter top, shattering the screen and denting one of the corners.

My Fix

It was pretty straight forward but be careful as not all microwave temperature settings are calibrated are the same.

My Advice

Read the instructions for the temperature settings for your microwave so you don't burn the rice in the iOpener.

My Problem

It's my fault, I was all excited that the project was progressing just like the tutorial, I rounded the corner on the bottom of the iPad… and didn't stop.

I figured I had things under control and then the guitar pick slipped… and cut right through the Wi-Fi antenna.

I paged down on the repair manual, and sure enough, it said STOP HERE!

Did I read that first? no. Did it cost me? yes. But I fixed it.

My Fix

Repairing the Wi-Fi antenna was easy once the part arrived. Had the iPad buttoned up and rocking in less than 15 minutes after that.

Every part fit perfectly.

My Advice

Move the warning up on the step by step page, big red letters and an arrow. STOP HERE! Warning Will Robinson! Warning!

OR I could have read ALL the directions first before proceeding. But I'm a guy...

My Problem

A customer brought in a broken, brittle iPad 2. They had dropped it several times, 2 years ago, but with no repair shops in the area they had no way to get it fixed. Until now.

My Fix

Getting the glass off the iPad was difficult, more difficult than it has ever been. I can only attribute that the the long time span between the breaking and the repair. Once I finally got the glass off, I noticed a severed cable. Oh no! I must have severed the power button cable in all my seeing and sawing to get the glass off.

The process of removing the cable component was pretty complicated, but with the ifixit guide I pushed through. Finally got a replacement cable installed, but the power button was not working still! Luckily I had ordered a second, because this was my first PBC repair. So I went at it again with the 2nd cable. This time, success! Everything is put back together, is beautiful and is working.

My Advice

I've done a lot of iPad glass replacements and have never severed the power cable before. I guess just be prepared for new adventures at any step! And for repairs that you are unfamiliar with, order a spare part!

My Problem

Broken digitizer, wifi antenna and LCD.

My Fix

This was my first time repairing any apple products. Despite this the repair was very easy.

My Advice

When removing the digitizer take your time.

My Problem

Wife dropped the iPad on tile floor. I fixed it because I didn't want to pay Apple $299.

My Fix

Went well. I fix it guide was great. Took my time. I did break the small LED retainer clip. I made a wedge of Mylar and this worked perfectly. Very tedious repair. Worth the time though.

My Advice

Be careful with the small clips that retain the digitizer and led strips. Be patient---very patient. I'm 68 years old but have experience with electronics repair.

My Problem

Due to multiple screen replacements (done by professionals) the Wi-Fi/BT antenna had been displaced and the wire frayed. Eventually the iPad had no connectivity. Not wanting to spend a hundred bucks or more to get it repaired I looked to IFIXIT for help.

My Fix

Between the low cost part and easy to follow online instructions I was able to fully repair the device and return it to full working order in under an hour!

My Advice

First, because this part required a near full strip down of the iPad layers, not only did I learn how to fix this component, but I believe I can actually repair most components in the iPad. The easy to follow instructions provided through IFIXIT and the low cost parts will allow me to keep this iPad running at least twice as long as I normally would keep a device. Now I can let my kids use the device without as much concern that the device is no longer covered under warranty or aftermarket "care" plans.
