Finding out which iPad components are broken

If only the glass on the screen is shattered and the image is still visible, then it is because the Digi assembly is broken whereas the LCD display is intact.

If you own an older generation iPad then replacing the Digi assembly is enough. However, the new generation iPads have both the display fused, then we have to replace both of them.

How to fix your broken iPad screen

The best way to fix your broken iPad screen is to identify which parts are damaged and which ones can be used. 

If you own an iPad 2 or a 3G supported you will need to buy different screens as they will be different in terms of dimensions. The iPad screen comes in two parts that are connected together:

  • The Digitizer
  • The LCD Screen

This is where everyone gets confused, about whether to buy a digitizer or an LCD Screen. If your touch inputs are not working properly, then just replace the digitizer. Otherwise, you will have to replace both the digitizer and LCD Screen.

Figuring out the right tools to fix the iPad Screen

Once you figure out that the digitizer has to be replaced, then there are a few tools that are required in order to fix it:

  1. Screwdriver
  2. Metallic Prying Tool
  3. Plastic Prying Tools
  4. iPad Clips Replacement Set
  5. A Narrow Screwdriver
  6. Electronic Tape

Disabling the iPad

First of all, we need a metallic prying tool to insert it onto a wedge near the front panel. It will be difficult at first as it will be hard to insert the tool. However, we have to make sure that it does not affect any internal parts.

Now we will have to slightly turn the screwdriver clockwise so that the metal clips are unclipped. Probably starting on the four corners of the iPad should be easy. 

Once the clips are separated, and the front end and the rear end are apart, we will need to remove the eight screws that connect the LCD Screen and the Digitizer. Then, next, we need to take out the electronic tape on the side of the assembly.

Moreover, there is a thin ambient light sensor connector that has to be removed to put it on the new digitizer. This small and thin ambient light sensor connector will be placed near the headphone jack.

Reinstalling the new Digitizer

Well to start, we need to place the digitizer on a flat surface and keep the LCD screen on top of the digitizer where the screws tend to fit in. Then, the clips need to be screwed onto the side of the assembly.

This will fit the front and rear assembly to fit together. Then the ambient light sensor connecter should be placed back to its position with the help of electronic tape. Once the sensor is taped, now put the eight screws back into the frame to secure the LCD with the digitizer.

Now to attach them finally we need to press them at the corners. Once we hear the snap sound it means that the digitizer and the LCD screen are fixed.
