The glass was cracked and shattered in places. The LCD was producing garbage.
Good. My first glued screen replacement so I was a little nervous but the instructions were near perfect.
Overall much easier than I expected and strangely satisfying!
I found it difficult to get the first access for an opening tool. What I did was pull the screen using a sucker then as it bent and a gap appeared between it and the case I inserted a flat blade screwdriver, not to pry the screen but to maintain the gap while I got the first opener in. After that it was just a question of patience and using the iOpener a lot. Doing this risked damaging the edge of the glass (although in practice it didn't) but the glass was toast anyway.
Removing the shield behind the LCD was easy but replacing it was made much more entertaining by the presence of the magnets along one side, they seemed to be very attracted to those tiny screws!
Broke my LCD when repairing the digitizer
Repair went great. Parts were shipped great. No problems. You can repair with confidence when you use Ifixit parts.
Be VERY VERY careful when removing LCD from ipad mini!
Broken front panel digitizer and mini ipad lcd
It was a little bit hard especially when removing the front panel
it did took me so many hours. Then it took me weeks because
the parts was defective, but with your tech support everything
went smoothly. I was happy that I finally fix my IPad
Read the instruction carefully, step by step
iPad Mini LCD was only showing a white line with no picture, but the hardware could be seen by the computer.
Repair took a long time and was tedious...The iOpener pack was not getting hot enough to loosen the glue so i had to repeat the softening process several times, besides that the repair went well.
Use a heat gun to loosen adhesive to make it easier and make sure you don't pull to hard on the digitizer or it will crack easily. Get the ifixit Jimmy it works great for the tough tight places.
