My Problem

After fixing my sister's iPhone, she pulled a smashed iPad from her closet. It was in a bubbly green foam "protective" frame that had obviously been no match for her toddler son. She had not used it in years and thought my son and I might be able to do something with it. We were eager to put it on the wall in our kitchen, if we could fix it. Off to ifixit we went!

My Fix

The repair was the most painstaking we have ever attempted. We had a lot of glass to clean up, and because it was so shattered, we mostly had to pick it apart rather than lift it off. The iPad was also so severely dented that we had to try straightening the aluminum a bit and then trim off a portion of the bezel to get the new digitizer comfortably seated. Luckily, we knew the pad was destined for life in a case on the wall, so we were comfortable making these changes.

My Advice

Patience. This took careful, slow work removing each bit of the shattered glass. It required special care to prevent damage to the wifi cable and camera. The guide was a huge help to us. The advice to tape up the glass to limit flying pieces was especially helpful. The excellent tweezers included in the tools ifixit supplied with the digitizer fix kit were our primary tool. We used these to pry up and then remove pieces of the glass. We also found a heat gun more useful than the iOpener for softening the adhesive.

My Problem

Broken Screen on my ipad

My Fix

It was fairly straight forward the most difficult part was removing the broken screen...as mentioned using tape across the front will help with the little pieces of glass.

My Advice

Use the hot pad and take your time.

My Problem

Busted LCD

My Fix

Repair went ok

My Advice

I bought new lcd and digitizer because I was not sure if I can remove the digitizer without messing it up. The tools that came with it helped but I have to buy a heat gun and a tool better than a plastic spudger. With the heat gun set at 400 F it was easy removing the digitizer. I removed it without damaging it and I only have to replace the LCD. I also use a 4 clamps to make sure the digitizer stay in place especially I did not replace the adhesives. I clamped it for 2 hours and my IPad 2 looks great.

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!
