What happened on your new iPad 2 screen?

  •  

    If you've got a new iPad, somehow managed to crack the glass on it, and don't qualify for any type of AppleCare or insurance replacement, we can help walk you through a DIY repair. Even though it's not an impossible task, replacing the screen on a new iPad is anything but an easy. We only recommend those with previous repair experience, you should attempt a screen replacement for the new iPad. It's also worth considering that opening up your device to perform any repair or modification can and will void your Apple warranty. If you don't feel comfortable opening your device, don't. Use extreme care and caution when performing a repair on any device.

     

      I recommend using the high-premium quality and genuine parts from a reputable supplier like cellphoneage.com. We have quality parts, tools and professional repair guide. Before performing any kind of repair on any device you should always power it off first. Underneath the digitizer of the iPad are a few caution areas you want to watch out for. These areas have either sensitive cables or components that can be damaged very easily. So memorize where these areas are and move extremely carefully when working around them. Along the top you will find the cellular antenna. It runs along both sides of the front facing camera. It can easily become attached to the adhesive on the underside of the digitizer and pull up with it. To avoid this from happening you'll want to use a pry tool to hold them down when prying around it. This ensures that it doesn't come up with the screen. The Wi-Fi antenna in the iPad 2 and new iPad is located along the bottom directly to the right of the Home button. Just like the cellular antenna, it can get caught on the adhesive and be pried up with the digitizer when you're removing it. Make sure when you're working around this area that you are extra cautious not to tear it. The digitizer cable is located towards the bottom left corner of the iPad about 2 inches up. Even though you'll be removing it and replacing it, still take care not to push it too hard as it can push into the LCD and damage it or pull up on components underneath the LCD. It's best to work around it.

     

      This is the most difficult part of performing an iPad 2 or new iPad screen replacement as the screen is held in with nothing but adhesive. We are going to have to heat it up to soften the adhesive and slowly remove it with our iPad opening tool. Make sure you perform this step extremely carefully and take your time. Before peeling off the backing to the adhesive, now is a perfect time to test the assembly instead of waiting until you've stuck down the screen with adhesive before realizing it's defective. Gently flip over the digitizer and power on the iPad. Once the slide to unlock screen comes up, go ahead and slide your finger to unlock to make sure the screen responds to touch. Tab through the Home screens for a minute to make sure everything is working like normal.

     

      You have spent a lot of money on your iPad, and it may not be in your budget to get a new one. Needless to say, replacing your iPad is going to cost more than it would cost fixing the screen. If the screen is broken, it is time to consult a technician for a screen replacement. Some iPad screens need to be replaced even if there’s no visible sign of damage: for instance, if the screen is blank all the time, or if the display disappears from time to time, or the brightness and contrast are playing up.

     

      One area where resistive screens win out is on price, since capacitive screens (plus their associated controller chips and other trimmings) usually cost around half as much again as their resistive counterparts. This isn’t too significant in a high-end smartphone where the margins tend to be pretty large, but it becomes an issue for entry-level devices.
