I knew it had to happen sooner or later.. . we have a crack on our screen. It’s across a corner and is affecting nothing so far. (knock on wood here) We just went out and got the Zagg screen protector in the hopes that it will prevent any more damage. Having an Otter Box is also great if your kid’s will be playing with your iPad. (Ours doesn’t have one.)
You can find several sets of instructions for repairing the screen yourself, but we are going to wait and see with ours. While it’s working fine it doesn’t seem worth the effort to try to replace the screen….
Step 1 — Display Assembly
*The iPad shown in the photos may look slightly different from your iPad, but the procedure is the same.
*Insert a metal spudger between the right edge of the display assembly and the rear panel assembly.
*Rotate the spudger away from you to release the tabs along the top edge of the display.
*Insert a second metal spudger between the top edge of the display assembly and the rear panel assembly to keep the tabs from snapping back into place.
*Pry the display assembly away from the rear panel.
*Continue prying the display assembly away from the rear panel along the bottom and left edges of the iPad.
