Manuel Noble: Instructions were not clear enough I now have my ipad in a blender!
darktroop6: Do you need to replace the LCD if you replace the digitizer?

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

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..
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
Ashley Steer: How do I know if I need to replace the glass screen or the digi
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
Ahmad El-Moussawi: Hi I bought my digitizer replacement on-line from china...replaced the
screen but now it is dead...it was working with the shattered screen
before...any idea why? followed the instruction. However, could it be that
when I removed the LCD, I didn't remove the adhesive like you did, rather I
cut the fabric-like that is attached to the LCD and the body of the Ipad.
Any help would be appreciated.
Michael Kemen: I replaced only my digitizer with IC already attached. The ditigizer works
fine when not glued down. As soon as I glue it down the lower left hand
corner off the screen starts activating randomly, and idea?
madatown: Thank you. Managed to replace a badly shattered screen in under 30 minutes.
Local guy wanted $150 plus taxes. No thanks!!!
ahmircole: Well I did not know that the inside of an ipad is so simple why does it
seem so high tech 0_0
TheTravisGeek: gosh my mom just broke the glass and she blames me

TheOnlyonejeep: thats a big putty knife...you newbies be careful watching this one.
raga1s: Thank you so much!!
I fix it one already with this video
Laptop Screen Replacement - 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.
Laptop Screen Replacement - LaptopScreen.com: We do have both for sale, although the stock varies. Please see the iPad
Mini listing on our site.
Laptop Screen Replacement - LaptopScreen.com: We do have no-solder-required parts now, but they sell out fast.
Laptop Screen Replacement - LaptopScreen.com: Yes, we do sell iPad Mini digitizers! (Also no-solder-required ones)
Laptop Screen Replacement - 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" :(
Laptop Screen Replacement - 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
Laptop Screen Replacement - 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.
Laptop Screen Replacement - 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
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
uBreakIt iRepairIt: A metal putty knife? Bad idea seeing that you can scratch the paint off the
digitizer with that. I would have used a plastic putty knife along with a
bunch of guitar picks to keep the glass lifted.
James Swiderski: 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.
Laptop Screen Replacement - LaptopScreen.com: Yup, just search iPad Mini on our site.
Laptop Screen Replacement - 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
Laptop Screen Replacement - 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!
Laptop Screen Replacement - LaptopScreen.com: Best guess: reconnect the digitizer. If that doesn't work a new digitizer
may be needed to restore functionality.
Brandon J: Ok so it looks like I only need the screen then. Do you sell the screen?
How much? I only see the LCD available.
karan kumar: some idiot give disllike to this video, very detailed instructional video
......nicely done ..thanks
jonathan french: The digitizer don't come with the ic chip u have to solder that, u missed
the most important thing in this vid how stupid
Josh Burnett: it dont it just shows you how to do both just in case
AlleyKatzTV: Can vouch for LaptopScreen, these guys sell these screens almost at cost
and they are so easy to install its insane that electronic stores can
charge so much to repair screens.
Stuff1646: I know a cheaper way...Get it fixed.
