My Problem

Cracked iPad Air LTE Screen

My Fix

I got stuck in a couple of places during reassembly, but all in all it went great! And only one band-aid!

My Advice

Someone should document the "putting it back together" steps as there are subtle nuances and techniques that probably need more coverage than just instructing you to follow the disassembly instructions backwards. (Mostly for people like me who have never fixed an iPad before.) I was a little confused on how to "tuck" the ribbons back in that connect the digitizer to the iPad. And getting the home button ribbon cable back into the ZIF connector was the one thing that took me the longest - I just couldn't get it to slide back in. Like I said, it would be nice to document the process to capture some of the more subtle techniques - had I known, I would have done it myself during my repair. So, my advice would be to take a good look at everything as you encounter it and how it disassembles and maybe that will help you when reassembling. Oh and remember to tape the digitizer where it is cracked before starting, even if they are nice clean cracks. The minute you pull up on the suction cup, you are going to place a lot of pressure on those cracks and they will crack further. You are going to want to make sure you don't screw up your screen with fingerprints or glue. Have a can of compressed air, a screen cleaning cloth, and some kind of surgical or food prep glove handy to use when moving the display and wipe it/air clean it one last time just before putting the digitizer over the screen. Wearing the gloves will help with fingerprints. You want the screen perfect before sealing it up and that means getting out dust, fingerprints, etc. And, I wasn't kidding about the band-aid. I barely touched one of the sharp edge and I had a bleeder.

My Problem

My iPads front panel was broken.

My Fix

It was really hard to take the glass out. Because it was broken. And I used hair dryer to heat up the edges. I dont think that plastic stuff works for broken screens. You need to heat the side more to take the type out. The problem was in the instructions did not say anything about the home button. I think one the most important stuff during the replacement process. I took that home button out. And I had to use a strong glue to stick home button back to new front panel.

My Advice

Make sure you have hair dryer, strong glue for home button.

My Problem

The user had dropped their iPad and shattered the screen. There was a chunk missing from the top.

My Fix

I was unable to repair it and had to recycle the iPad. The issue I ran in to was that with a screen as broken as theirs and the glue holding down the screen it was pretty much imposable to fix. In the end I not only got broken glass in my eye (I got it out) but when I did get the screen off all the cables came with it.

My Advice

The hot pad that they give you is a great idea, but for my repair it didn't work at all. It did make it a little easer to get off, but I believe the screen was too far gone for a repair.

My Problem

A Boston Terrier decided to chew the case that the iPad Air was in and crushed the screen at the corners and sent cracks across the face. The LCD was fine and the iPad still worked.

My Fix

The hardest part by far was getting the front glass off because there was no place to put the suction cup that would keep a seal and pull on the glass uniformly. The cracks across the glass caused it to bend where they ran. I used a heat gun on low because I needed a long sustained low heat to slowly work down the edge. I had to take whatever glass off where I could so that I could to get access to lifting the corners. Once the glass was off, the steps were much easier, but don't rush. Manage glass shards, dust and fingerprints and be careful of thin cable tapes. The result is awesome.

My Advice

When you reassemble, don't take the steps casually to get finished. You may forget a step and once the new display is on, there's no going back. The tweezers and driver set were very valuable. It would have been good to include a little brush for getting pieces out of nooks and crannies.

My Problem

Sprung im Glass durch Sturz....

My Fix

Als erstes mal das Positive:

Die Lieferung war sehr schnell (freitag bestellt montag geliefert;fedex usa in die schweiz)

Das Ersatz Glass (Digizar toutch panel) wa sehr gut verpackt. gut gepolstert, genug grosser Kartons. beim Auspacken sind wir die vielen zubehöhr sofot aufgefallen sehr gutes set .Saugnapf Schraubenziehern Set; plätchen zum öffnen, sowie ein wärme akku wo n der Mikrowellenherd aufgewärmt werden kann, um den Kleber zu lösen. (ich habes dann trotzdem mit nem Heissluft Fön gemacht )

das toutpanel selber war nochmals extra eingepackt.

Negatives:

Das Panel selber!

es ist wirklich nicht original nah! es sind gut, die Linien im Glas sichtbar!

bei hellen hindergründe (Startbildschirm) leicht sichtbar. mich Persönlich stört dies.

weiter ist der Knopf kein Orginal, das Symbol fehlt und ist nicht formschön.

reaktion und genauigkeit ist nicht gleich.

eine Line geht nicht! ( mittig daher unbrauchbar)

Kupferleitungen auf der Rückseite nicht versiegelt (was die Probleme erklären könnte)

My Advice

wie oben schon erwähnt funktioniert das Panel nicht ordnungsgemäss. Entweder hab ich es kaputt gemacht oder es hatte von anfang an ein Fehler. Eventuell liegt es an den nicht versiegelten Leitungen auf der Rückseite.

Jedenfalls habe das ipad nochmals aufgemacht, aber nichts defektes oder sonst wie falsches erkannt.

Jetzt nochmal Glas bestellt ( anderer Hersteller) hoffe dies ist qualitativer.

falls ich noch was erkenne was ich falsch gemacht oder kaputt gemacht hab schreib ich dies hier natürlich !!

My Problem

Broken Screen

My Fix

Very well after the initial frustration

My Advice

The worst part was removing the broken screen. My original screen was cracked all the way to the edges in multiple places. As I heated the adhesive and ran the picks under the broken screen, the picks would catch and I wouldn't be able to continue separating the adhesive. I ended up moving to different parts of the screen and working backwards to loosen the broken chips of glass. Once the glass was removed, it was simply a matter of following the directions and being patient.

My Problem

My kid broke the screen

My Fix

I used the tools that came with the parts from ifixit

My Advice

The web site help me with picture so it was easy to do it by my self

My Problem

My son dropped the iPad and shattered the front glass

My Fix

Fairly smooth thanks to instructions. Picking broken glass out was tedious but ultimately got it all done

My Advice

Go slow and take your time

My Problem

Little children dropped and stepped on my sister's iPad. The screen was pulverized in three places.

My Fix

I watched the repair guide twice before starting. It was very helpful and accurate, but since the glass was so destroyed I had to use a single-edged razor blade to lift some pieces. The packing tape I applied first did a good job of containing the glass. With patience, I was able to remove all glass shards and adhesive tape. After that it was no problem with disassembly. When reassembling after testing be sure the home button cable is properly taped down and tucked in before replacing the glass. Everything works and the iPad looks like new.

My Advice

Take your time.

My Problem

Shattered Display

My Fix

Slow

My Advice

You really want to take your time doing this, do not rush. The glass is likely to crack more when you are trying to separate it from the glue. If the glass shatters around the edges, don't worry about trying to get it all off at once. Continue separating the glass, and come back after it is removed to clean up the edges.
