My Problem

The Screen Was shattered

My Fix

THe repair was successful but the iOpener was not as useful as expected. Essentially it did not warm the glue of the iPad enough to remove the screen well. If doing it again I would likely use a hair dryer or heat gun to warm the iPad more and loosen the glue rather than the iOpener.

My Advice

The glue does need to be warmed rather a lot to remove the front panel, I found the iOpener to not be as effective as I had expected.

My Problem

The screen had multiple cracks & the Home button was missing. Everything else worked fine, though.

My Fix

Fairly smoothly with a couple rough spots:

1. Getting the first pick under the glass took a lot more force than I expected. I ended-up being patient and having to heat the area several times as I tried to get the tools in-place & break the adhesive.

2. Since the screen was broken in multiple places, it didn't come out in one piece. There were a couple of places that were cracked along the edge over the adhesive, and I had to carefully dig-out the shards with a screwdriver because each one was cemented to the frame.

My Advice

Patience and careful experimentation go a long way to a successful repair.

My Problem

My wife dropped it (AGAIN!)

This time resulted in a long diagonal crack across the screen.

My Fix

Having a strong background in computer repair, I decided that this time I would replace the screen instead of spending 6X the parts cost on a repair shop doing the work. So, having examined the damage, I purchased the repair kit, read the repair guide 5 times and embarked on the Joyous experience of "iPad - Under the Hood".

My Advice

I fully recommend that before attempting this repair, walk through the guide at least twice, and reading the caution notes posted at the side.

Before attempting to remove the front glass, I would strongly recumbent the use of 2" clear tape to cover the cracked screen. This prevents the screen splitting while unsealing the glued rim of the iPad.

My Problem

Screen was cracked

My Fix

Everything went good, one corner will not stick and stay down on the screen

My Advice

Be patient and go slow

My Problem

I fix the ipad screen is was broken

My Problem

My daughter accidently broke the screen while playing with a toy hammer. She was hammering on the couch and the iPad was laying underneath a blanket when it was damaged. Oh, No! Crying!

My Fix

The repair was easier than I initially expected. The instructions where great!

My Advice

I would watch several videos on YouTube to get an idea of the different techniques you can try and then take your time on the repair.

My Problem

Fading iPad screen and rear camera on my iPhone 4 not working

My Fix

The iPad repair was straight forward however I managed to break the digitiser connector during the opening process.

It did not really matter because it was going to be replaced.

Before putting it back together I turned it on only to find that the problem persisted

Had to buy a replacement LCD screen and now all working perfectly

The tools provided were not suitable for the iPhone for removing the case and not fine enough to handle the internal screws it's still a work in progress

The iPhone was easier to work on however the connectors were a lot smaller and finicky

In general it was a very satisfying experience

My Advice

The iPad was very cost effective to repair compared to what Apple was offering and I would do the same again

In relation to the iPhone it would have been quicker and cheaper to have had it repaired at my local shopping centre

I have spent most of my working life behind a desk and I'm not really a handyman and found the process reasonably straight forward

My Problem

Crack lens and skitish digitizer

My Fix

perfect. With instructions on youtube, it was a no brainer

My Advice

Yes, Pay extra attention on celluar models when cutting out old glass. Its very easy to cut through antenna ribbon under glass.

My Problem

Was almost unusable after my dog knocked it out of my hand onto some concrete.

My Fix

I honestly think that having the glass shattered made the repair easier. It was definitely extra work having to clean everything out and the mounting tape didn't come off with the screen, but the shattering gave me a good place to start prying up what was still in one piece. The way it shattered also showed me the delicate wifi antennae and where exactly it was, so I didn't have to hope I wasn't going to break it as I was peeling away around that area.

My Advice

If you are replacing the digitizer and glass assembly, as in its damaged and has no chance of being used again, don't be afraid to peel the little pieces away or break the screen s bit more as you're doing it. MAKE SURE YOU HAVE EYE PROTECTION and slowly pry away at loose pieces so you can see what's underneath if you aren't sure. No photos were taken, so sorry I can't show more. Also, if you come to the point of having to pick out the little pieces around the edge, I definitely recommend a metal blade that you are VERY comfortable using. Even if it's a bit dull, it's much easier for scraping up the glue/tape around the edges and removing the stuck pieces of glass. I stress this again: BE VERY CAREFUL IF USING A METAL BLADE AROUND ANY DELICATE PARTS. This is why I say be comfortable using it, as if it does slip, it can potentially cause more harm than a plastic one.

My Problem

I hit three additional problems when replacing the glass.

1) The iPad had been dropped a few times, and it turned out the top of the case was slightly bent - this kept the glass from fitting well in a previous repair.

2) The drops had also dented the corners, making the glass not fit quite right.

3) When I first installed the new glass panel, the top center bulged up.

My Fix

1) To fix the bent case: With the LCD and glass out of the iPad, I put the pad on the edge of a table, and slightly bent the case so the top edge was flat.

2) To fix the dents in the corners: I used a fine file to get rid of metal that would have been above the level of the glass, and used a piece of metal to push out places where the case's metal got too close to where the glass would be.

3) The bulge was caused by the camera bracket on the back of the glass - it had two bumps that fit into similar spaces in the camera; if the bumps were in the wrong place, the glass wouldn't fit. On my second try, I ended up fitting the glass in at the top first, making sure that the camera mount fit correctly.

My Advice

  • With the LCD and digitizer removed, check the metal case for damage and fix anything that might keep the glass from fitting well.
  • Double-stick tape from the art supply store (such as Letraset high-tack double sided tape) can be used to hold the glass or the plastic bezel in place.
  • Start installing the glass from the top, and make sure that the camera boss fits correctly before pushing the glass fully into place.
