    Broken Ipad screen

    Hello

    Having had 9 ipads in our small school for 18 months without incident 2 get broken screens within a week.

    What do all you edugeekers recommend for replacement , should I try myself or leave it to the professionals. And what would I expect to pay for screen replacement if done by the pros ?

    Any advice gratefully received.

    When a staff member dropped hers, we took it to Timpsons. They said it would take a week and cost 100, and it did. Convenience was a bit factor in choosing them.

    I replaced my first last week, very easy to do with the correct kit. Patience and a hot air station.

    We buy the parts (from the 'states), and do it all in-house with a hot air-gun and some microwavable heat packs.

    I do my own, have done 5 now and got it down to about 15 minutes. Use a hair dryer and chisel knife. Get the screens from Charter Office Suppliers.
