My Problem

Broken screen

My Fix

Went fine. But when you start to pry open on the side there is a crack you will then make 10 more tiny cracks on that little section

My Advice

DONT MAKE TINY CRACKS IT. HURTS YOUR FINGERS

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

cracked screen from one too many drops

My Fix

slow but steady... ran into an issue with glass shards and the wifi antenna. I also had to use some heavier duty tools to shape the aluminum shell out of the way of the new glass. That was probably the hardest part.

My Advice

really watch out for that wifi antenna. I didn't break mine, but I sure came close. Also, I don't have a microwave, so I was unable to use those I-opener gel thingies. Instead, I used a hair dryer, which works great, so long as you don't go overboard with it. As far as the glass shards, I forgot to follow the smart advice of using box tape to hold all that crap together when taking the glass panel off.

My Problem

Ipad 2 fell of a table and impacted on the upper right corner causing large spider cracks in the front display but was otherwise still usable.

My Fix

Prepare for a long haul if you have lots of small cracks on the right side where you start the removal process. Total time was about 4.5 hours to soften all the adhesive and pick out the individual shards. Even with taping the display I found the plastic picks would get hung up on each crack. After getting the display off everything was relatively easy.

My Advice

Get the Bluetooth/Wi-Fi Antenna if it is your first time doing this repair. You most likely will damage it without knowing it.

My Problem

Friend of mine dropped his iPad and cracked the entire display

My Fix

Used the iOpener that shipped with the kit, unscrewed some screws and installed the new display.

My Advice

Don't order those cheap display panels off Amazon, they are a complete waste. Buy it here on iFixit.

My Problem

Wife was at a track meet for my eldest daughter and someone knocked the iPad off her lap and it struck the concrete bleacher shattering the glass.

My Fix

Received the repair kit timely and went to work on the broken unit. I did not have very good luck with the iOpener to heat and remove the glass/adhesive so I switched to a low watt heat gun. The tools provided (excluding the heater) where very useful and I was able to get all the broken glass out. Heading back to the kit I removed the new digitized glass and found it had a crack in it and called iFixit support. The technician walked me through RMA and shipped a replacement unit that day. I'm still awaiting that replacement but should be a quick completion on arrival.

My Advice

Tell folks not to rush and take their time getting the adhesive warmed enough to get started. I torn the ribbon cable to the broken digitizer because I didn't let the glue lossen enough. Also recommend some adhesive remover or include in the kit, as there is a LOT of tack left on the frame post glass removal.

My Problem

I found that alarm was working but only the display was not working, hence strongly believe that the change of front panel display would fix my problem

My Fix

I followed the simple and easy steps provided in iFixit and able to fix the probelm successfully.

My Advice

Guide has 13 steps till we remove the old front panel display, the additional details like fixing existing the home button and camera would have been provided, it would be most helpful in re-arranging steps.

My Problem

I had an iPad that some careless dumdum (myself) pretty much completely shattered the front panel on. So the panel needed to be replaced.

My Fix

The iOpener worked wonderfully until I got to the really shattered part of the panel removal. At that point a heat gun and some elbow grease was required but I got the panel off. In the process however accidently cut the wifi antenna (that I was explicitly warned about lol). I ordered the replacement and once it arrives I can finish up the repair. Otherwise so far so good. iFixit, You guys are awesome.

My Advice

The iOpener works really well but if the glass of the device is badly shattered it can be a little intrusive in a constant heat and scrape kind of operation. Also pay extra close attention when opening the bottom of the device, they aren't kidding when they say the antenna is delicate. And in a case with a bad shatter where elbow grease is required you should probably just order the antenna piece with the display since damaging it when removing serious glass shatter is almost inevitable.

My Problem

I had dropped my iPad 2 and cracked the front panel... twice, and on two corners.

My Fix

I used the guides. All went well. I am glad I ordered all of the parts I did. As it turned out I damaged the Wi-fi antenna when taking the front off. I put everything back together, including the new antenna... unfortunately there was no Wi-Fi... I contacted customer support, via email, and within two hours Matt had new antenna shipped out via priority mail. I installed the new antenna this morning. I am happy to report that all is well!

My Advice

Definitely order that antenna just in case you toast yours like I did. The Front Panel assembly is a better deal than just the glass, as it turned out I did not need the bezel replacement, but it is good to have jut in case. The opening kit worked well. heating the gel filled pad for 30 sec worked for me.

It was a good experience, do not be afraid to attempt this fix. Oh smallest Phillips bit in my Ifixit tool set worked great. The magnetic tip is essential. I also used the magnetic mat to keep the screws in one place. The white and black grid helps keep the screws in order, and more importantly keeps them in one spot so you are not faced with the prospect of getting on your hands an knees searching for TINY screws on the floor.

My Problem

My wife stepped on my daughters ipad

My Fix

It took me 1.5 hours to fix it. But was easy with the idol video helper.

My Advice

I used the heat pouch and a heat gun and the front came right off
