Ipad 2 Cracked Screen Repair

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
Hey guys, long time no see haha...

My mom broke her 64GB Wifi/3G ipad and I was wondering if anyone here has had experience fixing them. I was looking at a few youtube videos of people repairing them and it seems like it is worth the effort / cost of the buying a repair kit and I was wondering what would be a good kit to buy to fix it?

Thanks smile.gif

Hmmm, I did it twice on my Ipod Touch, but I can't help with a Ipad, it's way more huge tongue.gif

You can bring it back to Apple store if it is still under warranty and they might give you a used one.

That's gotta be a pain in the arse and a lil bit of a hit on the wallet. I read that apple will charge you 420 for repair or you can try one of them ebay kits for under 200.

Don't know how damage it is but perhaps you only need to replace the outer glass for about $55 on eBay. My MacBook pro was shot with a bb gun and only the glass broke. The LCD is perfectly fine and I just had to replace the glass.

Holy batman!
A BB gun and it only killed the glass? Impressive glass, Apple.
Or must be some weak BBs/gun

No sir-ee captain!
Apple will not replace a device that has been dropped/cracked under warranty, they will but not for free.
I believe their iPod flat rate is ~$149, their iPhone is ~$210, and up it goes.

Personally, I have fixed one first generation iPad 3G, and numerous iPhones & iPods.
They're pretty straightforward, as long as you know what you're doing.
My first iPod repair, I ended up replacing the client's as it was just destroyed (killed the LCD, and some other things, but I'm pretty sure the fact that it was washed, then repaired, it was it's time to go).

iPads are a bit more difficult considering they are larger.
What exactly broke?

The outer 'glass', aka digitizer, or the actual screen, aka LCD.
LCD will always be expensive, somewhat.

Looks like the digitizers themselves are about $50, and the LCD's are about $50, or at least this is from the person/source I usually buy my parts from.
This is for iPad 1/2.

Either way, it will be much better to replace it DIY, than to take it to the Apple Store, and pay out of your butt.

If you cracked just the glass, then you can replace it for a relatively cheap amount. Get some kit on eBay.

However, if you cracked the actual LCD too, then that will be expensive.

I might just send it into this one website that will fix it for you because it seems somewhat tricky to do it yourself and almost impossible to do it without bending the aluminum backing.
