DIY: Steps to be performed before looking for an iPad service center 

You can always visit an iPad service center to diagnose the issue with you iPad screen, however, if you have not dropped your iPad or there is no liquid damage then you can perform the following steps to narrow down the issue with your iPad screen.

  1. Hard Reset

    This is a basic step to ensure that your iPad’s software is not causing the issue. To do a hard reset hold the Power Button and the Home Button simultaneously till you see an Apple logo and let go off the buttons to allow the iPad to restart. This step will ensure that the issue is not because of the software.  For more information, see https://support.apple.com/en-us/HT201559.

  2. Clean the display

    If your iPad touch is unresponsive then perform this step to ensure that dirt or moisture is not causing the issue. Use a microfiber cloth to clean the display of your iPad. You can also use 1 or 2 drops of Isopropyl Alcohol to clean the display. Also, ensure that your fingers are clean and there is no moisture.

If your iPad display is not responding even after performing the above steps then you can visit an Apple Authorized Service Center or an independent iPad service center to get your iPad diagnosed.

How does iPad Screen Replacement work 

Unlike the newer models of iPhone’s, a few models of iPad do not have LCD and the touchscreen fused together as a single unit. The touchscreen and the LCD can be replaced separately for iPad1, iPad 2, iPad3, iPad 4, iPad Mini 1, iPad Mini 2, iPad Air 1, iPad Mini 3, and iPad 5. However a few models of iPad such as iPad Air 2, iPad Mini 4, and iPad Pro have the LCD and Touchsreen fused together as a single unit, hence the whole unit has to be changed if there is a damage to the touchscreen. iPad screen replacement must always be done in a clean environment by qualified and experienced technicians because of the various connectors involved in the iPad screen replacement process.

Pointers to look for if you are getting your iPad screen replacement done from an independent service center 

The following are some of the pointers to help you decide on selecting an independent service center because of the high costs involved in getting the iPad Screen replacement done from an Apple Authorized service center:

  • Warranty: There are a lot of iPad Service centers in major cities like Bangalore, Mumbai, Hyderabad, Chennai and Delhi offering iPad screen replacement. However, each iPad service center provides different warranty. Always look for people who provide warranty above 1 year, because the quality of the part is in direct correlation with the warranty offered.
  • Quality: Quality is the most important metric in selecting an iPad service center. As mentioned earlier, a good quality part always comes with a good warranty period, hence look for an iPad service center which provides a warranty of 1 year or above for the iPad screen replacement.

    Tip: Always avoid independent service centers who claim to have different quality of screens/ Original Apple screen. Only Apple authorized service centers have access to original screens.

  • Customer Reviews: The most important metric of a service center is the quality of reviews. Always look for the reviews about the service center before finalizing one.
