My Problem

My son was having one of those months in which all kind of things were going wrong. To complicate things more he accidentally dropped his iPad and broke the front display. He was devastated and the damage seems serious. I needed to fix it to give him some relief.

My Fix

I started looking at ways to repair it and stumble into great video in YouTube. The idea was presented so clear that I felt compelled to roll my sleeves and fix it for my kid. The video was done by iFixtIt, so I order the kit to open the iPad. To my surprise it came through the mail so fast.

I went slowly, as it was my first time dealing with a broken iPad, but all was happening nice and easy. The glass was so broken, but with the video advice to put tape on it, I was able to handle well. Once I opened I assessed the situation, and order the parts I needed.

Again, the parts came through the mail very fast, and I was able to start replacing the broken pieces. I admit that had trouble installing the Bezel, as the instructions how to put the glue on was not clear. It took me a bit to figure it out. Aside from that, all was straight forward, thanks to the video and guides at the iFixit.com website.

My Advice

It was an experience that went from really bad to great. and I found valuable the people behind iFixIt.com. They had put a greater solution for Apple devices users. The broken iPad looks like new, and I am very pleased to have fixed with iFixit.com solutions and services.

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

Wacko iPad decided to fly out of my hand. All went well for about 2 seconds, then it fell down a flight of concrete and steel stairs.

My Fix

All went as described. My only problem was the chassis was somewhat deformed at the corners, causing some difficulty fitting the bezel. Turned out okay though.

My Advice

Dry fit everything.

My Problem

My wife dropped her iPad down the stairs, completely destroying the front panel glass. I decided to at least try fixing it myself first because I wanted to learn how.

My Fix

Ordered the front panel assembly from iFixit, followed the step-by-step guide, and it was a lot easier than I expected it would be. Took about 2.5 hours, but if your screen isn't as badly broken as this one was it would take a lot less time. Wear safety glasses and be careful with the glass. I ended up using a razor blade to get most of the glass out because the pieces were so small, but this meant I had to be extra careful not to damage anything.

My Advice

When you are done, don't panic if the iPad won't turn on. To get it to recognize the new digitizer and the reinstalled LCD you have to reset it by holding the home button and power button for 10 seconds. If your screen is completely shattered like this one was, there will be tiny pieces of glass everywhere when you are done, so do this somewhere easy to clean up.
