iPad 2 Parts and iPad 2 Repair

March 2nd, 2011

When the iPad 2 was released on March 11th, we were there. We were one of the first companies to teardown the iPad 2 and begin offering replacement parts and repair service.

Our iPad 2 Parts store has all of the internal components needed for self repair. We’ll be carrying all of the parts for the Wi-Fi and 3G models. ( Model #s A1395)

For those not up to self repair, we have a Send-In service for iPad 2 Service. The cost for the service is $30 labor + part cost.

Call us for iPad 2 Repair

Here is the final result of our iPad 2 Take Apart done on March 11th.

====== ORIGINAL POST =====


Within minutes of the new iPad 2 being announced, we began fielding several calls on whether we’ll repair them and if we’ll be carrying iPad 2 parts when they come out. It’s understandable for our resellers to be asking, but why are individuals already anticipating breaking their new iPads?

It’s assumed the device will be just as serviceable as the original iPad. If that’s the case, we’d assume the same components will be replaceable for the iPad 2 as for the original iPad. Several leaked images prior to the release, specifically of glass digitizers, also show that this will likely be the case. Likely the most popular replacement will be the iPad 2 Glass digitizer panel, as that is the most popular repair on the iPad, second to the LCD, battery, and casing in that order.

So to answer the question, yes we will offer iPad 2 parts and iPad repair, likely from the first day they hit the streets. And yes, we’ll have our usual take apart of the device and will be posting the video shortly after the launch, so keep an eye on the site for that.

    @ Michael – If you have the clip and the logic board is not physically damaged, we should be able to reattach it. You can call our repair department at 866-726-3342, option 2.

    The small black latch that secures the connecter from the digitizer to the motherboard has come off. Is this something that you can fix?

    @ Brad – You likely need the LCD. The problem however is that you may damage the glass as it has to be removed in order to change the LCD. So, you may need the LCD and the glass digitizer.

    my ipad2 16gb dropped but no damage to glass. Yet after a day the screen went completely black i can only see the back-light when i press the home,or sleep/wake button. What part do I need?

    @ Rachel – It likely is the LCD. The problem however is that there is a high probability that in changing out the LCD the digitizer will crack as well.

    My son accidentally dropped the iPad 2. Fortunately, there is no physical damage but there is internal damage i.e. LCD screen is no longer bright. Everything is still working as you will still be able to see images on the screen when very bright light is shine directly on the screen. Suspect it is the LCD that need replacement and I’m thinking of repairing it myself. However, I will need some expert advise on what would be the items needed to do the repair myself for this case.

    @ dahianna – Depending how badly it broken, it can sometimes be repaired. If it can not you’d have to replace the logic board to fix the issue.

    @David – You can sometimes repair the connector, but usually it will require replacing the board.
