My Problem

iPad 2 Digitizer was in pretty worse for wear shape and iPhone 5 battery went from full to empty in a few hours.

My Fix

The hard repair. iPad 2 Digitizer came off in no less than 1 million small glass fragments. With some patients and some careful elbow grease, the digitizer was off. New one on and like new in a few minutes. This is the repair that i thought i might be tossing the iPad in the garbage and getting a new one.

The easy repair. The iPhone 5 has a few screws, pull the screen up, pry the battery out, put in new battery, done. Turned iPhone on to check repair. Nope. Maybe it needs a charge. Nope. Take apart 20 more times. Nothing. I must have been too aggressive pulling up the screen and broke a wire. I could hear the phone working but nothing on the screen. Tossed in the garbage and off to Apple for a new iPhone. Proud owner of a new iPhone 6s.

My Advice

The option to repair these devices yourself is awesome. ifixit gives a great and cheap option to fix your device rather than get a new one. The kit options are perfect. Great advice on this sight also.

My Problem

iPad 2 - shattered glass --not just cracked - shattered with part of the glass missing and the wifi/bluetooth cable exposed. iPad worked fine, just left glass in your fingers!

My Fix

Took about 4 hours to completely remove all the broken glass. I applied tape as suggested, but this glass was just that messed up, pieces and sections of glass missing, so the tape could not provide enough stability. It did however help to not allow the broken glass to touch the LCD underneath. The iOpener worked well for the long straight almost intact edges, but for the little stuff left over once the main glass and LCD were removed I used a hairdryer on hot and low in short bursts along with tweezers and more tape. Once it was all gone, I turned the back over to shake out the loose tiny shards, and more tape & tweezers to get the stubborn spots. But the new glass went in smooth - and looks great! the kit was well worth the price!

My Advice

If glass is shattered (not just cracked) and you don't have patience find a professional. and be prepared to work on it slow and steady.

My Problem

We are a 1:1 school with iPads 3-8 grade. From time to time we need to repair the screens.

My Fix

Every year I get a new set of helpers. I teach them how to repair devices.

It's always a nervous time when they first remove an iPad screen but after two or three they get the hang of it.

My Advice

Take your time don't over heat the LCD while removing the glass. And watch out for the power cable in the top right. It's tricky especially if it is a secondary repair.

My Problem

The iPad screen cracked and it was not charging properly.

My Fix

The repair went smooth followed the step by step video on ifixit.

My Advice

Keep doing what ifixit is doing . It would be great to add more devices.

My Problem

The after school care program at my son's school uses iPads to keep track of the kids, and parents use the same tablets to check out their kids when picking them up. When one of the iPads was dropped, shattering the screen despite the protective case, I figured it was time to put my iFixit skills to good use.

My Fix

Repairs weren't as smooth as I'd hoped they'd be, but I'd budgeted 100% more time than I thought I'd need. Ended up taking 150% more time, but I was all done in about two and a half hours.

I had plenty of experience replacing the screen on my Nexus 5, but the iPad was a totally different ballgame. And the adhesive! Apple went all out making sure that the front panel stayed stuck. Forever.

Once the broken glass was cleaned out and the case empty of all the glass pieces I could find, the rest of the repair took about 15 minutes (though I used a pre-assembled front panel for ease). At the end of the day, folks at aftercare thought it looked and felt like a new iPad, though I noticed there were a couple spots where I'd missed glass in the adhesive, so there were some tiny waves along the border.

My Advice

Safety glasses: Wear them if the screen is broken. Even with tape down, I felt more than a couple small shards hit my face as I pulled up some of the bigger pieces of glass.

If you're working remotely like I was, spring for the iOpener. I'm comfortable with a heat gun, but it wouldn't have been practical in this case. Watch the wattage on the microwave - the school had the low-power college dorm kind of microwave. Consequently, the iOpener didn't get very hot the first time around. I kept reheating and working, at most every three minutes as directed, and it helped a lot.

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.
