Introduction

L'iOpener est un sac isolé et retenant la chaleur, qui peut être chauffé au micro-ondes et utilisé pour transférer de la chaleur sur l'adhésif le long du bord d'un iPad ou d'un appareil similaire.

Suivez ces instructions de base pour inaugurer votre nouvel iOpener (noir, rempli de liquide). Pour l'iOpener blanc, rempli d'éléments solides, suivez plutôt ce tutoriel.

Pour des instructions détaillées spécifiques à votre appareil et à votre réparation, consultez nos tutoriels de réparation pour iPad.

  • Placez l'iOpener au centre du micro-ondes.

    • Pour les micro-ondes à plateau tournant : assurez-vous que le plateau tourne bien. Si votre iOpener se coince, il risque de surchauffer et de brûler.

which temperature must be used for heating? Thx

I found you need to be very patient when using the iOpener. It's worth taking your time, giving the heat time to work on the glue. When I finally got the battery out, there were some strips of glue left behind that I just cleaned off with some isopropanol before installing the new battery.

By the way, I had to run the iOpener for longer in my microwave for it to get hot enough. When it was too hot to touch, I figured it was hot enough for the batteries.

I didn't find this to be as hard as I had built it up in my mind to be; HOWEVER, saying that I need to say years ago I was the local Nokia service center in my town. But many years ago right after they got rid of analog times. Yeah. A classic installer/repairer mistake when starting something they haven't fixed or installed before is picking up the instructions, flipping through them; maybe even reading a section that is new-then tossing the instructions over the shoulder. "I got this." This usually comes right before something major gets broke. And I can tell you when you try to do it yourself and then mess it up horribly then take it to the repair shop. Well we called that "I can do it myself" syndrome and charged extra to put back together what they brought in in the box. Now knowing all this - I can't stress this enough because I am stupid, stupid, stupid. COVER YOUR SCREEN IN CLEAR BOXING TAPE AND READ ALL THE INSTRUCTION BELOW THROUGH TO THE END BEFORE EVEN ATTEMPTING THIS FIX. Take my advise.

I didn't have an iOpener, so I used a wheat type heat bag. If you do this though, make sure you put a layer of plastic between your Mac and the bag, or you'll get condensation in places you don't want it.

I started out using the iOpener but switched to my wife's hairdryer. A heat gun or hair dryer proved to be much more convenient and is a time saviour. You can heat more and the glue becomes more fluid make the next steps with the opening picks much easier

Jan Van Puymbroeck - Réponse

Use a hair dryer! Watch this vid: https://youtu.be/16GkvjVyOJA It is much easier to do if you heat it from the other side.

I wonder how many people actually wrapped in their iPhone into iOpener and put this "sandwich" into microwave??

putinaspiliponis - Réponse

I know this is obvious, but backup your iPad with iTunes before you start. I'd also turn off your passcode if you have one.

Ther first time you heat up the iOpener for this repair when its room temperature I had to heat it up for more than 30 seconds. I remember I had to heat it up for around 45 seconds. However, after that when you need to reheat it again during the repair 30 seconds will be enough.

I've been with Samsung for 8 years now!! Never did i have a case on any of my phones My Samsung 8 is 2 months old the case protector around the edge pop off and broke my phone it's like someone put a bullet hole in it

Not everybody has a microwave. You need to state how long and at what temperature in a conventional oven.

Chauffez l'iOpener pendant trente secondes.
  • Chauffez l'iOpener pendant trente secondes.

  • Comme l'iOpener refroidit au cours de la réparation, rechauffez-le à nouveau au micro-ondes, mais ne dépassez pas les trente secondes à chaque fois.

  • Faites attention de ne pas surchauffer l'iOpener pendant la réparation. En cas de surchauffe, l'iOpener risque d'exploser.

  • Ne touchez jamais l'iOpener s'il vous paraît gonflé.

  • Si l'iOpener est encore trop chaud au milieu pour le toucher, continuez de l'utiliser jusqu'à ce qu'il ait assez refroidi pour le chauffer à nouveau. Un iOpener correctement chauffé doit rester chaud pendant 10 minutes environ.

May I know the temperate limit about heating iOpener? (maximum 150 degrees Celsius?) thx so much.

I had to heat mine up for more than 30 seconds. After 30 seconds on high it was only warm. It had to keep trying different times and checking it until it got hot. I think the initial time that I put it in for was over a minute.

whale13 - Réponse

DO NOT USE IN NON ROTATING MICROWAVE! It will pop a hole. I had it in for 45 seconds the first time. It wasn't very hot inside and I saw it started to leak on the paper towel I put under it. Just a fair bit of advice. I think I will just stick with the heat gun. Loud but useful.

If I don't have a microwave then I try to use hot air gun so how many munuts i want to heat ?

Mohideen Rifay - Réponse

I heated mine up for 30 seconds, tested, then again for 30 seconds. It felt adequately hot. Leaving it on the left side, per the instruction, for a minute did not loosen the adhesive. I ended up pulling the suction cup hard enough to shadder the old screen. Moral of the story, I don't think it gets hot enough safely to have an affect.

Travis Dixon - Réponse

There is a clear problem here with the heating part using the iopener things....no details are given. Whoever is testing them needs to make it clear - What temperature does it need to be? And for which phone models, because they differ in what's needed. It's only £10-15 for a laser guided temp sensor unit, and the designers/repairers should have one of those already for doing these kinds of repairs. Explaining half a repair, is worse than not explaining at all :-(

I used a hot water bottle, works well as it covers the whole screen and stays hot for longer.

dave - Réponse

If I may suggest include your microwave wattage so people can get an idea on time for there own

I ended up using a hair dryer. That iOpener thing took forever.

mark fitzgerald - Réponse

30 seconds sure isn’t cutting it… 45 didn’t get the screen of my iPad air 2 to budge either… even after resting on the ipad for 4 minutes.

60 seconds in the microwave, the iOpener burst.

I’ll get a new one and try once more with heating it 45 seconds and repeat that for 30 minutes like others have said here. If that doesn’t work it’ll have to be the heat gun.

  • Sortez l'iOpener du micro-ondes en le tenant par l'une des deux extrémités plates pour éviter le milieu qui est très chaud.

  • L'iOpener sera très chaud, alors soyez prudent en le manipulant. Utilisez un gant de cuisine si nécessaire.

Will a hair dryer work for heating the glass?

Me berg - Réponse

Yes, as does a heat gun.

anonymous 4602 - Réponse

I did this repair. I used a hair dryer, I think it works better: gets very hot fast.

Cobus de Beer - Réponse

  • Placez l'iOpener côté transparent vers le bas, plat sur le bord de l'appareil, sur un joint adhésif que vous souhaitez chauffer. Le liquide va aplatir l'iOpener contre la surface, assurant une bonne conduction de la chaleur.

  • Laissez le sac reposer sur l'appareil pendant environ 90 secondes avant d'essayer d'ouvrir le panneau frontal.

  • À ce stade, vous devriez être en mesure de commencer à faire levier sous l'écran avec un outil d'ouverture en plastique. Assurez-vous de regarder le tutoriel spécifique de votre appareil pour savoir où et comment faire.

  • Tout au long de la procédure, vous devrez réchauffer l'iOpener. Pour éviter la surchauffe de l'iOpener, attendez toujours que l'iOpener ait suffisamment refroidi pour le toucher en toute sécurité. Ne pas mettre au micro-ondes l'iOpener pendant plus de trente secondes à la fois.

I bought two of these, and I can't get an iPad 2 to open using the iOpener; I'm going to keep trying, but heads up, it's not as easy as 1-2-3. I'll update if I get it to work.

Kevin McCartney - Réponse

Step 2 says to wait 5 minutes between reheating, step 4 says to wait 3 minutes.

Also, do you sell the "this is a microwave" stickers? xD

Mark Brown - Réponse

Will this tool damage the lcd/ pixels or even the camera/sensor if placed on the edge above those? I need to soften up the adhesive only, not replacing the screen at all. I have a surface pro 4.

allanwl - Réponse

A short remark about how much force will then be needed to separate the old battery from the heated adhesive would be helpful. I found that even after I was able to begin the insertion of a plastic card between the battery and the case, it required a great deal of force to push the card further under the battery to complete the separation.

Steven Aigner - Réponse

While the iOpener tool kit may be the best solution for some applications it is decidedly NOT the optimal tool for removing and replacing a badly cracked Samsung S7 back. The iOpener was simply unable to get the adhesive hot enough to get it to release. Also, the cracked back did not provide enough uninterrupted surface for the suction cap to maintain enough suction to lift the back after I heated it with a heat gun. Overall an EXTREMELY frustrating experience. I do not fault iFixit for this but there could be a little more nuanced explanation about which applications are the best fit for the kit. Mostly I’d like to send a big effuuu to Samsung and all the other smart phone manufacturers who are systematically locking end user out of their purchases. Setting aside the sealed backs it’s absurd that we spend $700 on a smart phone and then have to spend another $40-60 for a protective case and a screen protector. The is no other consumer good we would put up with this.
