iPad Repairs

iPad Repairs

iPad repairs including the iPad Air and iPad Mini are one of the most common tablets and iPhone repairs that require repairs.  This is most likely due to the popularity of this tablet although we due repair other tablets including the Google Nexus, Samsung and Kindle.

When we discuss iPad repairs here, we are talking about all iPads, ranging from the 1st iPad through the iPad 2, iPad 3, iPad 4.  Then then came the slim iPad Air 1 and 2, and not forgetting the smaller iPad Mini.

The most common iPad repairs we seem to tackle is the dreaded cracked screen.  Although the iPad screens are very strong, they do not take much force to break.  If they are dropped on their face or corner, the screen is sure to break.  The iPad screen top surface is called the digitizer, this is a thin film of glass that provides the touch screen input.  The digitizer, as some may think, is not the screen which sits below.

The screen is a separate panel below the digitizer and usually survives all but the most serious accident.  This is why, when the digitizer is cracked, the LCD screen below still works.

It is also common for the digitizer to continue to function even though the glass has cracked, this can have a few safety issues as the glass will produce shards of glass which can cut your finger so it is important that the digitizer is replaced.

Southport Computers can replace your digitizer, sometimes within 24 hours as we carry most parts.  Those parts we do not carry can usually be acquired within 48 hours or so, and, if you wish, we are happy to order the parts and you return the iPad  for repair when the part is in stock, a deposit will be required for this service.

The digitizers are not the only iPad repairs we fix.  We also repair the LCD screens, iPad volume controls, power switches, headphone ports, iPad batteries etc.  In fact, we can replace every iPad part including the PCB as seen in the picture to the left, this is an actual back light repair.  Component A was replaced on the board denoted by the letter B.  We have a number of contracts with Schools and Colleges for their iPad repairs so be assured, we are very experienced.
