I have an iPad provided by school. They are heavily used in lessons. They expect us to keep it in perfect condition for 7 years. Not even 4 years in and the iPad no longer charges. School tells me that "We can reset the iPad and it should fix the problem. If not then you are at fault and you will no longer be able to learn in school".

Welp R.I.P to my iPad air lol I ain't ever buying apple products again such a pain to repair.

MartinIRL says:

I am wonder if is not easier to replace just the port instead full flex cable?

Jhamel Pizana says:

Just go to a professional and pay him to do this job… Easy

Does the replacement reset the iPad? I can't backup the iPad with iTunes because the charging port is broken

Wiseman Wise says:

Thank you for your great efforts, however it's a torture to deal with that Ipad opening. Easier to buy a new one !!!

Sophia Sabay says:

It seems risky. Though I do recommend to put it on repair and let a professional do all the work but also be sure to backup. In case anything goes wrong.

Ipad air is very slow to charge. Pluggud it in last night it was at 2% & when I checked it in the morning (after 10 hours charging) it was at 11%. Anybody able to help?

aesthetics mom says:

Took everything apart till I got to the logic board and couldn’t figure it out, then I watched the vid and realized soldering was involved….oops lol

Dude, you need to get into the habit of disconnecting the battery before you remove the lcd and digitizer connectors, That's how how you blow the backlight, Just lift up the battery connector a bit and slide in a guitar pick to keep it isolated. Otherwise great Vid

I am happy i found this video 🙂 common sense and lots of time just taking your time = susses , if at any point your frustration level rises a point of a degree , just take a note of what point your at , and kill a dragon , and come back to it 🙂

Soho Yankee says:

I'm sure glad I watched this video. Now I know I'd be way over my head if I tried this myself. The safer bet is to pay the $80.

ODOGG says:

cant that whole part just be replaced to avoid having to do soldering

Christopher Paden says:

Go Cell Phone Repair, What temperature do you have your heat gun and soldering irons at?

Rosalina1971 says:

Are there any schematics for this unit available any where ?

Rosalina1971 says:

The unit I have is from my sister and she told me that when she dropped it she said that the display now show no shim card. I reseated the card with still the same problem. I'm thinking the shim plug from the mother board most have shafted out of place on the small shim card board. So unit has to be open up.

Rosalina1971 says:

I'm a Maintenance Engineer for a TV station and been in Electronics for 52 years. Is it okay to use a shrink tubing heat gun (extremely hot gun). Or a regular hair heat dryer? I notice you are using a shrink tubing gun.
