    Post New iPad 3 Screen Repair Guide
    Planning on making repairs to your iPad 3? This take apart guide will walk you through all the required steps to replace a damaged touch screen, LCD screen, or other internal parts.

    This guide will help you to install the following New iPad 3 parts:
    • New iPad 3 Touch Screen Glass Digitizer - Black
    • New iPad 3 Touch Screen Glass Digitizer - White
    • New iPad 3 LCD Display Screen
    • Other New iPad 3 Parts and Accessories


    Tools Required:
    • Safe Open Pry Tools
    • Small Phillips Screwdriver
    • iPad Opening Tool
    • Heat Gun/Hair Dryer


    Required Steps for Screen Repair:

    • Begin by using a heat gun or hair dryer on a medium setting and warm the adhesive around the outside edges of the touch screen. This should take around 45-60 seconds to warm the adhesive.
    • Using an iPad opening tool, gently insert the edge into a corner of the tablet. Gently glide the tool along the edge, releasing the adhesive. You will need to reheat the screen several times to keep the adhesive warm while removing the touch screen.
    • This is a long process that should not be rushed. Take your time and work around all edges of the device until you can finally lift the digitizer. The digitizer flex cable will be located in the bottom left of the iPad as show in Orange in Figure 1. Be cautious of this and swing the digitizer to the left to avoid damaging the flex cable.

    • With the iPad open, use a small Phillips screwdriver to remove the 4 screws as shown in the image.

    • Carefully swing the LCD screen up and to the left. Carefully lay it on top of the touch screen.
    • We now have access to both the LCD screen flex cable and the touch screen digitizer flex cable.

    • If replacing the LCD screen, carefully lift the flex cable to release the adhesive holding the cable to the housing. Follow the cable connector. It will be the top orange circle on Figure 3.
    • Lift the tab located on the battery side of the connector using a safe open pry tool. With the lock opened, gently remove the old cable from the connection.
    • The LCD can now be replaced.
    • If replacing the touch screen digitizer, follow the LCD flex cable and lift the adhesive holding the cable to the housing. Carefully move the LCD screen out of the way of the touch screen flex cable. You can now follow the touch screen digitizers flex cable to its connector. This will be the lower orange circle in Figure 3. This will have two latches that need to be lifted.
    • Now, lift the adhesive holding the touch screen digitizer flex cable in place. With the latches open, the flex cable can easily slide out of the connector.
    • The touch screen digitizer can now be replaced.


    Simply reverse these instructions to reassemble your iPad 3.

    Is it just a regular small Phillips screwdriver that is required?

    This is correct

    While detaching my digitizer, one of the Latches attached to the connector broke off. My question: does this mean the motherboard will need to be replaced? Would it function properly with just one latch after I put it back together? Any advice is greatly appreciated

    If you can place this latch back into place then it is possible that it will work. If the connectors are too damaged then you will need to replace the motherboard.
