IPad Mini Glass & Screen Replacement (digitizer And LCD Removal And Installation)




What do you think about this video?

Alicia Daniels: If my glass is cracked do I have to remove LCD as well?

Mike Ellis: Thanks for the video. Most informative I found and the suction cup method is, without a doubt, the best way to get the removal started. Everyone else recommended a razor blade which will scratch the finish if you're not EXTREMELY careful. Appreciate all the time you put into this.

darktroop6: Do you need to replace the LCD if you replace the digitizer?

Hassan Bakkali: really surprising to know that tablets (or at leat the ipads) are built differently than smartphones. digitizer and glass come in one piece, so its easy but cost a lot. for a smartphone, S4 for example, you can just replace the glass (bcause its not glued with the digitiser), cost 5$, but you have to glue it (loca), cost 5$, but its really time consuming to remove old glue, and must be carefull when glueing, and UV...

romefox: Damn glass is nearly impossible to remove without cracking, I learned this the hard way, all the heat and patience in the world will not matter. Its ridiculously fragile, so when changing components inside, you will need a new digitizer as well most likely. The LCD is also extremely fragile, repairing these things is a huge headache. Unless its a digitizer/glass replacement in which case break that bitch.

P Banks: Where do you recommend ordering the actual glass screen from? What is the estimated cost of the screen?

Ashley Steer: How do I know if I need to replace the glass screen or the digi

Juan Rosales: actually the ipad mini has magnet on both sides. but this small magnets on the corners. what is that for?

hycocam: Thanks for the video. Wish I had seen this one before fixing my 1st mini--really easy to crack and/or overeat/discolor the LCD screen if you are not careful loosening the glue. This method is one of the better for getting digitizer safely separated. 

itzToxcismoke: My digitizer didnt come with a home button in it. Can I swap them? I need help.

Juan Rosales: I replace one mini ipad screen but I saw one of those magnets on the corners, what is that?

DjKnightSky23: I just need to replace glass lol

Eduardo Martinez: My ipad mini felt and now i can barely see whats on the screen like if the resulution would be really really low what can i do? thank you so much

Yusuf Furkan: could i use a pencil instead of the metal pick, and how much harder would it be if i didnt use a suction cap

Manuel Noble: Instructions were not clear enough I now have my ipad in a blender!

madatown: Thank you. Managed to replace a badly shattered screen in under 30 minutes. Local guy wanted $150 plus taxes. No thanks!!!

TheOnlyonejeep: and what if someone drops their magnets??? from the corners...hmmm SORRY FOR THE CAPS. MOST OF THESE REPLACEMENT SCREENS DONT COME WITH MAGNETS...they are wake/sleep sensors....compass might be affected also..

ahmircole: Well I did not know that the inside of an ipad is so simple why does it seem so high tech 0_0

Belguim King: i know but i dont have an iPad mini ;) i want one

TheOnlyonejeep: thats a big putty knife...you newbies be careful watching this one.

Belguim King: Why u do it open why its a new iPad there's nothing damaged!!!!

Nazaha Ahmed: my dad paid 120 bucks to fix my ipad mini screen :(

TheTravisGeek: gosh my mom just broke the glass and she blames me

Akye20xx: hi, ipad mini 1st and 2nd gen uses same digitizer?

Mike Hayden: I nailed it. It really isn't too hard, The again My screen was fine, just didn't like the colour.

Noah Stellar: Hey...I noticed when you were removing the glass by sliding the putty knife past the camera lens of the Ipad. Does the glue that you spread in front of the camera's lens smear? or does the Ipad still have an excellent camera

raga1s: Thank you so much!! I fix it one already with this video

LaptopScreen.com: NO, currently the iPad Mini parts from any supplier, other than Apple (or used/pull) come with NO home button, and NO digitizer control circuit. We are hoping to source those parts, for now we've had customers successfully install what we offer.

David Carcamo: Do you offer the iPad mini glass? I dont see it on your website.

LaptopScreen.com: We do have both for sale, although the stock varies. Please see the iPad Mini listing on our site.

LaptopScreen.com: We do have no-solder-required parts now, but they sell out fast.

LaptopScreen.com: Yes, we do sell iPad Mini digitizers! (Also no-solder-required ones)

LaptopScreen.com: At the time of making of this tutorial, no replacement parts were available at all. A month later, and for duration of several month, only "non ic" parts were available. Now, we sell "no solder required" parts. But you are most welcome to make a tutorial on your own that will show the soldering procedure - it will surely be greatly appreciated by everyone :) If you make it as a video reply - we'll make sure to post it!

Brandon Phillips: How do you know that both the LCD and Digitizer needs to be replaced??? I have an ipad mini that is cracked, but the LCD underneath still works.

idrift26: hey i found a ipad mini on the side of the road and the plastic screen was all cracked and the bottom glass screen wasnt it doenst work how do i tell what i need to replace and it is a model number a1445

Keith Hays: I bought the glass for my mini from these guys. Unfortunately, this video is misleading because instead of the simple instructions for connecting the glass as shown between 3:36 & 3:47 there is lots of soldering required. They don't offer a screen with button as this video shows. The support guy (who was nice) said that the video assumes that you have already performed the soldering steps on YouTube video sGrz-HwUoSU "iPad mini touchscreen digitizer and home button soldering" :(

LaptopScreen.com: 21 people out of ~100k that watched this video, broke their iPad beyond repair. If comparing the iPad mini repair to iPhone 4, iPad is elementary. We'd rate the difficulty of repair on iPad Mini - 3/10. (Unless you get "solder-rqd" parts). The digitizer comes out much easier than iPad two, and the most tedious part is undoing the unnecessary screws on the mid-shield. Undoing the screws is not hard, just makes you think negatively of the designers.

LaptopScreen.com: Actually, to clarify, the support guy (myself) informed the customer that the video was created prior to any replacement parts being available (just as the mini came out), and there was no way of foreseeing the issue. We have not had a chance to get any hands-on experience with iPad mini since the video was created, but our customers were able to navigate the issue at a success rate of 9 out of 10. Appropriate annotations have been placed in the appropriate moment in the video.

LaptopScreen.com: LaptopScreen doesn't provide mail-in repairs yet. However iPad Mini, as seen above, is not the most difficult repair imaginable, we'd rate the difficulty (on a professional scale) as 5/10: using appropriate tools and plenty of patience, a first time repairer should complete the job in under an hour. As well we now sell direct-drop-in iPad Mini parts (no soldering required)

Geoff Waller: So I guess you are the only vendor that sells iPad Mini digitizers with the control circuit and home button already installed? Every replacement I have seen so far has required soldering the home button cable and control circuit onto the cable of the new digitizer. I'll gladly pay more to avoid the hassle of flex cable soldering, but the images on your site do not show the control circuit nor the home button and flex cable.

Mathew Huffman: Does replacing the screen require soldering at all? Thanks!

Adrian Formaran: please show the details on how to re-attache the connection of the digitizer to its connector?. thanks

James S: is this the way to do the screen replacement without soldering??? i need a quick answer... thanks

TheDHM3007: This I

Peter B: Hey just a quick tip, when you have both the lcd and glass tilted over, instead of holding it the whole time you can place a suction cup behind the glass and have it rest on it.

LaptopScreen.com: Yup, just search iPad Mini on our site.

LaptopScreen.com: Although you can cut steak with plastic knifes, surgeons still use scalpels. Likewise, plastic tools can be used for repairs, but real technicians use real hardcore tools :) In all honesty the damage to the aluminum edge could happen only if the installer is in a hurry or is not careful. And we do have pictures to prove it!

Dante Killa: It its pretty simple..The only problem I had was with the touch screen part.. My screen was completely shattered and I need a new one. Thats the hardest part you will come across..Also before you do this.. LOOK UP IPAD MINI SCREW CHART..Its a magnetic chart bigger than the ipad so you can place the screws on the chart that have the exact screw placements labeled.

Vince Gioffre: too bad the screens you sell dont have the smaller digitizer board attached

LaptopScreen.com: Partially Fair note. Metal tools can be used to scratch paint off the glass surfaces. However, please keep in perspective that this video is geared towards people with already broken digitizers, and paint condition will matter only for the "curios" disassemblers with digitizers intact. Also, the effectiveness of the tool is in the power of the beholder, and in this video it is used with-out scratching the paint. Cheers!
