My Problem

Broken screen

My Fix

first screen installed but tore the ribbon connector, had to order a replacement.

When the replacement came in, I installed it but the touch screen was hit and miss. The screen has bubbles on the underside. Emailed customer support, they said to remove the protective covers which I did, I've unplugged and re installed the ribbon connector many times but I can't put in my passcode it won't take the numbers. I give up something else is probably wrong.

My Advice

Not easy take your time quality parts and tools.

My Problem

My screen was cracked in multiple places and it was time to fix it.

My Fix

I rushed into the repair at first. After several frustrating attempts of getting the screen off I became frustrated. The key here is to go really slow and keep heating the heating pad and let it sit for awhile and take the opening process inch by inch. Also, be VERY careful about the wifi cable in the bottom right corner. I broke mine.

My Advice

Be very patient with the heat pad.

My Problem

Cracked screen from drop and dent in corner.

My Fix

Repair guide was great and easy to follow. Just had to heat up and bend the corner back out, then grind it down a bit so it wouldn't happen again. iFixit does it again!

My Advice

Go slow and do not skip any steps, the wifi antenna is very easy to break.

My Problem

I was on a road trip and was unloading the car, when my iPad slipped out of my hand. I put my foot underneath to break the fall, but it still hit the pavement on the corner. The glass had 3 cracks radiating from that corner. I lived with it for a few months and then heard about iFixit.

My Fix

I had quite a bit of trouble getting the old screen off. The adhesive was very difficult to loosen, even with the heated gel pack. I resorted to using a hair dryer and that worked better. I think the adhesive was so old that is was gummier that normal. Once I got the old screen off (it took about 2 hours!) the rest of the process went much more quickly. I turned on the iPad before I adhered the new screen to make sure I had gotten everything connected properly. It worked!

My Advice

The instructions for getting the old screen off were very clear and the pictures helped quite a bit. I was disappointed when we got to the reassembly part, and the instructions merely stated, "...do the reverse" in order to get it all back together. It's not that simple, and took some time to figure out what to do. I would recommend having some instructions for the reassembly.

My Problem

We have an iPad that we have been for my daughter's education- she is 3 and has autism, but has always responded to people well using the iPad. I'd stepped on this iPad when it was left on the floor by the rugrat. We recieved an older, second iPad- iPad original- and I decided to try to repair this one so each of us had one to use at all times. I also wanted to troubleshoot my Wi-Fi. I hadn't used the iPad much after downloading OS 7, until I had the screen replaced. After doing both, I noticed decreased Wi-Fi connectivity. I had seen online comments about having Wi-Fi problems from both replacing the screen and downloading OS 7, and I wanted to make sure I hadn't cut or dislocated anything slightly that was connected to Wi-Fi.

My Fix

I'd replaced this screen once before when she dropped the tablet on its corner and it spiderwebbed across part of the screen, so I knew what I was doing. I hadn't adequately removed the previous adhesive, and used my hair dryer as a heat gun. It took less than ten minutes to get the screen removed cleanly.

Placing the adhesive strips around the edges of the screen was tricky, because there wasn't a clear picture of which adhesive strip to put where on the instruction screen. I guessed which ones to use based on the picture of the full front panel assembly, but the adhesive strips were shaped differently and the opening on the upper right side of the front panel is now toward the right end of the top side of the digitizer panel. I can live with that for now, but I plan to do it properly if anything like this happens again.

Everyone makes a big deal (out of caution and to make people aware) of the locations of buttons and the wi-fi antenna. After taking things apart, though, I found nothing wrong with the antenna. I unscrewed part of it but it didn't have any loose bits, and I didn't see any play in the plug where it was connected to the logic board. Everything looked good. I have Cerebral Palsy with tremors in my hands, and I can't trust my hand-eye coordination. I was very nervous the first time I replaced the digitizer (this is why, on my first go, I rushed through replacing the screen when the adhesive wasn't properly removed). I had two screaming kids to keep track of at the time I was changing things out, and it STILL worked fine for me.

My Advice

One thing that made it easier to keep the screen clean while I was changing out the parts was using disposable nitrile gloves to keep my finger oils off things. I had a terrible time keeping track of fingerprints last time, and that kept me from observing dust between the screen and the glass. This time, I was only working on one thing at a time-- the dust-- and it was gone quickly. This repair looks much better.

Also, the little piece of adhesive that belongs in the upper right hand corner could be attached to the metal case instead of the screen, so that the open space in the adhesive stays in the right place.

I wish there had been an instruction manual just for the adhesive, because I didn't want to dig through the instruction manual for the entire replacement when I had it basically memorized.

Also, I much prefer a carefully aimed hairdryer over an iOpener. It's a great concept but mine never got more than warm on the one-minute setting that is recommended, and I couldn't get the glass off with anything but the hairdryer.

My Problem

As the title says, the screen was cracked and I choose to replace the front panel instead of the whole unit

My Fix

The repair was fairly straightforward and easy given the instruction on the site. The only issue I had was trying to remove the broken pieces as most of them were located on the bezel.

My Advice

AS you mentioned in teh repair guide. USE the iOpener liberally! Let it sit for a while to loosen/heat the adhesive especially if the broken pieces are located on the bezel

My Problem

Why throw away a perfectly functional iPad just because the screen looks like a spider's web?

My Fix

The iFixit guide was wonderful. Just one hitch - the adhesive strips. Put them on the metal parts of the iPad, not the new front panel!

My Advice

See above.

My Problem

After dropping my iPad on a hard floor, the glass in the top corner shattered. Figuring that it was cheaper (and more rewarding & personally satisfying) to fix it, I went online and was impressed with the video instructions on iFixit and decided to go for it.

My Fix

Repair went well. It was scary at times (being the first time I've done it) but nothing bad happened. The hardest part was removing all of the powdered glass from the area that was broken. Cleaning that took lots of time, effort and acetone but got it done with only a few cuts on my fingers.

My Advice

Take your time - I took about 2 hours in total but half of that was just getting the broken glass out. Don't forget to remove the home button from the old bezel before putting the whole thing back together. When I was done, I wasn't really happy with how the new glass was lying in the frame. I put the unit under a stack of magazines and put a weight on top overnight. By morning it was perfect.

My Problem

Dropped iPad 3, shattered front glass, pieces coming off the edge of the iPad.

My Fix

Repair went very smoothly, I check the repair guide several times as I waited to get the part from ifixit, also watched their video guide couples of times, so when I finally got the front panel I was very much ready as one can get from reading, and watching the tutorials.

Finally got the part, the only issue I had was with the part where the glass was badly shattered, other than that, it was pretty straight forward.

My Advice

For advice, make sure you verify the integrity of the part, when I got mine I saw air bubbles in the front glass, I thought I was the plastic film covering the glass.

It turns out the part is defective, it has a lamination problem, as air got caught in between the glass and the digitizer.

My Problem

it dropped 5 times in one day, and the last from less than 3 feets. Then it broken in a thousand pieces, jeje.

My Fix

Very good, i had a little trouble in the begining because of the state but after that was all straightforward.

My Advice

Stick to the guide. It's the best partner you can have.
