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.

Part of the reason we closed our Southport Computer shop was due to Merseyside police failure to protect us from a theft that resulted in a persistent targeted attack against our business and the owners. This attack came from the thieves and the local news outlet call OTS News in Southport. The owner (Joel Rodwell) posted malicious information on his OTS website resulting in a criminal investigation against him.

Lancashire Police
Detectives have released CCTV footage following an arson attack at an address in Ormskirk.

Around 12.25am on March 9, a light coloured Vauxhall Astra car pulled up in Grimshaw Lane.

A male passenger left the vehicle, ran across a pub car park and approached the driveway of a property in Yew Tree Road.

Accelerant was poured over the bonnet of a Volkswagen car and ignited before the male returned to the Vauxhall and made off from the scene.

The front of the vehicle was destroyed, with heat from the blaze damaging a Citroen car parked on the driveway.

Fire crews attended the scene and the fire was quickly extinguished.

The occupants of the property, including two children, were inside the home at the time of the attack. No injuries were reported.

Detectives are appealing for information and are particularly keen to speak to anyone who recognises this man, pictured, in connection with their enquiries.

Det Sgt Stephen Monk, of Lancashire Police, said: “We have launched an investigation following an arson attack at an address in Ormskirk.

“The occupants, including two children, were inside at the time of the fire and have been left extremely upset and shaken up by this incident.

“We believe this is an isolated attack and are particularly keen to speak to this individual, pictured. He has a distinctive run and we believe someone may know who it is.

“Following enquiries, we believe the vehicle used by the offender is a light coloured Vauxhall Astra registered between 1998 and 2001. If you saw this vehicle, or anyone acting suspiciously in the area around the time of the offence, please contact us.”

Anyone with information can contact police on 101 quoting crime reference SB1700895.
