My Problem

The ipad was dropped face down and the screen cracked into about 6 large pieces and 6723 tiny ones.

My Fix

The repair instructions were great except that when you have a craked screen it's impossible to simply run the picks around the edge. You have to repeat the step of getting the lifting tool between the screen and bezel for each large piece. Then at some point I used the tweezers supplied in the kit to remove those 6723 tiny piece of glass from the adhesive around the edge.

My Advice

The ribbon cables for the LCD and digitizer take more force to insert than you will expect. Also, the LCD did not come on at first boot. I had to hard reset it for the LCD to power up.

My Problem

The user dropped it for the second time in two months first time fixed it to work on apple products to see if I wanted to add it to my skill set

My Fix

much easier the second time around

My Advice

I found using a dental pick instead of the plastic spudger allowed me to separate the digitizer with much fewer obscenities. I used an exacto knife to remove stubborn adhesive and glass fragments

My Problem

Cracked digitizer

My Fix

Be patient, but the repair worked like a champ.

My Advice

Be like Mike and just do it.

My Problem

The iPad screen was cracked due to being dropped on the corner.

My Fix

It took me about 2.5 hours but following the instructions and video provided guided me through the repair with no major issues. The hardest part as mentioned in the video was removing the existing cover.

My Advice

Patience and following the instructions is very important.

My Problem

Broken glass. My 2 year old son had sat on it!

My Fix

Repair went well. Watched the Ifixit video & it was a breeze honestly. I'm lucky I'd been a window installer in the past, where part of my job involved removing old windows & glass, so I had a heat gun & understood how it works. I also had the full Ifixit tool kit that I got for computer/camera repairs & that was pretty much the key for it going as well as it did.

My Advice

Definitely take your time, work in a well lit place on a flat, light colored surface. I used a desk light with a magnifying glass on it & that helped a lot!

My Problem

Wife dropped the iPad on tile floor. I fixed it because I didn't want to pay Apple $299.

My Fix

Went well. I fix it guide was great. Took my time. I did break the small LED retainer clip. I made a wedge of Mylar and this worked perfectly. Very tedious repair. Worth the time though.

My Advice

Be careful with the small clips that retain the digitizer and led strips. Be patient---very patient. I'm 68 years old but have experience with electronics repair.

My Problem

The iPad 3 screen was cracked to heck and back.

My Fix

Mostly flawlessly.

My Advice

I wish I had been wearing gloves when handling the LCD panel. I was careful not to touch it with my fingers... But I managed to put a great palm print on there. The sun is your friend. That iOpener... While neat in theory... Is not effective. I put the iPad in a pillowcase and in the back yard for half an hour. Luckily I live in Las Vegas and it is July so after heating I was able to peel the digitizer back with my hands after I made a small gap. Lastly, I didn't insert the cables for the digitizer deep enough into the ports. The touch was non functional until I really seated them well. Make sure the silver stripes on the cable are no longer visible when the cable is inserted.

My Problem

Unfortunately, my iPad fell on the garage floor and the glass broke.

My Fix

It took me about 2 hours to get all the glass off. The video depicted an ideal situation where the glass is not shattered. I used a small vacuum to help manage all the glass. Safety glasses are a must, due to the glass breaking into smaller pieces and flying everywhere. The iFixit heating pad did not work well and I needed to use a heat gun which I purchased for $10. Getting all the glass off was the most difficult part.

My Advice

Buy a heat gun; it will loosen up the adhesive easier. One area the iFixit video doesn't identify is what to do if the aluminum case is bent. If you have dropped and broke the glass, chances are you bent at least one of the corners. I had to bend it back into place and file it smooth. Make sure to do this or the glass will not fit. I purchased the full assembly panel. This I recommend if only because the adhesive is included and already attached to the glass. This is a real time saver.

My Problem

Screen shattered.

My Fix

The repair process went pretty good, but the screen is in extremely bad quality!

My Advice

Please don't ever purchase anything from ifixit. The spunge tool can easily get worn, and the new screen quality is extremely bad. And don't trust the customer service. Their video can be awesome only if you want to tear down a not broken scree!!!

My Problem

Dropped the iPad on the tiles and cracked the glass.

My Fix

The repair was a success and very easy thanks to the replacement guide.

My Advice

Read the guide before starting to familiarise yourself with what need to be done, and what parts are required before you start pulling it apart.
