    Default Re: Cost of replacing ipad screen?

    Just called a place and he said $278 but they aren't even fixing them atm as he doesn't have a part he needs so yeah..
    Only $200 more and i could buy a new one. I don't know if it's even worth fixing?

    Default Cost of replacing ipad screen?

    If you're handy with things you can buy a screen off eBay for $40 (or probably cheaper that's just the first one I saw) and change it yourself, I have had a friend do this and he said it was quite fiddly and takes a little while but it looked brand new when he finished it and is a lot cheaper than the apple store doing it! However it would void your warranty so I'd only do it if its already after the warranty period!

    It wouldn't be covered by my insurance as it would be deemed a portable item and would need it's own insurance policy.

    Yeah I'm not really sure I could do it either, I'm horrible with fiddly things!! But if you know someone who is good with those things it could be a last resort!

    DIY! Get the kit off eBay and most have links to a YouTube vid showing how. Super easy! Only for the 3/3G though..... iPads and 4+ are a lot more complex.

    my dad got an iPad screen replaced for $100. My cousin got hers done for $60 but they screwed it up and spent ages fixing the problems they caused.

    Wow. That's not too bad. Is that for the ipad 4? Apparently the older models are much cheaper to replace.
    Maybe i should wait until it's older and cheaper?

    There are a few phone repair places around. So far the cheapest quote i've got is $190.
