My Problem

The battery was not lasting very long.

My Fix

It went great, I really took my time and was very careful. It was a lot more in depth then I expected. You have to take out the motherboard, speaker system and the battery was glued down.

My Advice

At first I took the top off just to see where the battery was. It was right there so I assumed that it would just pop out without issue. But it was really glued down tight. Just have patience don't rush just take your time.

My Problem

My iPad was not taking a charge, and the moment that it disconnected it would totally power off. The iPad's screen was working, but since the battery wasn't taking charge, the screen would only stay on for seconds at a time, then go blank, etc. To remedy the situation, I ordered a replacement battery, some metal spudgers and a bag of replacement clips.

My Fix

All went well except when I tried to remove the display cable from the back of the LCD. I pulled a little too hard, ripped the connector from the board and now my screen gives absolutely no images. I've once turned it on, powered it, and gotten feedback from the speaker that the touch panel was registering touches, but the LCD is useless. The instructional guide on iFixit doesn't mention removing this cable, but it seemed necessary at the time. Now I guess my next step is to buy another LCD screen? This was my first go at repairing an iPad, and is my first mistake repairing an i device. I'm kicking myself for not taking more time with checking out how the connector worked.

My Advice

Take your time, watch multiple videos online of the process. Don't be hasty like me :)

My Problem

I had a bad / old battery in my iPad.

My Fix

I went pretty good until i was going to re assemble it, i managed to break the display, ending up with a garbled and broken display instead of a bad battery. My iPad is beyond repair now i think, unless i replace the display but then i have spent more money on parts than on a refurbished one =)

My Advice

I got to take apart and then reassemble an iPad that was a pretty cool experience, i know know that you should not dabble with these kinds of devices. It's broken now don't think i will get another one either. Fun experience though =) The iPad was given to me so it's not a big loss to me.

My Problem

We've had an first gen iPad since about 2010, just after they came out. I replaced the battery last year with a cheaper aftermarket batter from a large online book seller. It only lasted till about 10 months before it would have a hard time staying up for more than a couple of hours. This go around, I splurged on the iFixit battery and lo and behold, it's lasting about 14 hours of my son streaming youtube. Well done.

My Fix

Second time around went smoother and using the iFixit guide helped a lot.

My Advice

If you keep your ipad in one of those heavy duty cases like and Otterbox or Griffin, don't bother with the screen clips. Just makes it harder to take apart the next time. These are devices with a planned obsolescence. My repairing them is a solid middle finger to those who would have me just go out and buy a new device, instead of repairing what I already own.

My Problem

One day the iPad stopped working. Would not turn on or initialize no matter what buttons you pressed. Wouldn't even go into recovery mode. All I got was the Apple logo randomly flashing and only when it was plugged in to a power outlet. Apple suspected the battery and offered their out of warranty $100 swap for a like iPad but loss of data. Needed that data. The solution was buy a replacement battery and try my hand at a tear down.

My Fix

The ifixit repair "how-to" guides are perfect. Go through them several times before you even get started. Follow the guide, read the cautions, get the tools. If you don't understand a process, take a CLOSE look at whats involved and figure it out.

From start to finish I took three hours (very slow and cautious) and the iPad works like new.

My Advice

1. Get the tools! The right tools make everything easier. Get extra plastic opening tools. They break rather than your devise (which you want) if you use too much force.

2. IMPORTANT! Buy extra metal clips that hold the screen in place. Unless your a magician, they will break. I broke 5 without even trying. You may not need them to reassemble, but if you want that clean like new fit, they need to be replaced.

3. The compoments inside the iPad have many tiny spacer/pads all over the place to keep parts from rubbing together and for a proper fit. They come off easily. Try to reinstall them if you know where they belong.

4. If the SIM board is not in the way of your battery don't bother removing it from the inside of the case. You'll see when you get there.

5. The SIM board connector on my iPad had fine electrical tape wrapped around the connector. This tape has to be unwrapped before you can remove it from the socket on the logic board.

My Problem

G DAY,Thanks for your concern, with myself and a tool kit like that,so many tools in such a small package!!Well I broke every second clip Holding the screen in,I followed the utube movie on how its supposed to be done,"They make look so easy"and dont show the reverse process.But,but, But I actually got my ipad apart and back together.It still dosnt work but i have plenty of time,and i know what im doing.Bloody great tool kit Thanks,Regards Mick DunnDEE

My Fix

DISASTER

My Advice

Definetly NONE at this stage

My Problem

Ipad 1 battery life was terrible! Replaced battery and FIXED!!!

My Fix

LEGENDARY! Took bait longer than expect the ordered T5 torn screwdriver sucked on the smaller bolts! Use T4 screwdriver bought from the source which was a great investment!

My Advice

Bad part of the process was the metallic holding clips snapped off but some still held! and could hold the LCD screen still in place which was good! warning that this process will scratch the edge of your iPad between the screen and metallic casing but everything else is good!
