Ce dont vous avez besoin

  1. iPad Pro 12.9" 2nd Gen Front Facing Camera Replacement, Prepare your iPad for disassembly: étape 1, image 1 de 1
    • Allow your iPad's battery to fully drain before starting this repair. A charged battery may catch fire if damaged during the repair.

    • Unplug any cables and fully shut down your iPad.

  2. iPad Pro 12.9" 2nd Gen Front Facing Camera Replacement, Tape over a cracked screen: étape 2, image 1 de 3 iPad Pro 12.9" 2nd Gen Front Facing Camera Replacement, Tape over a cracked screen: étape 2, image 2 de 3 iPad Pro 12.9" 2nd Gen Front Facing Camera Replacement, Tape over a cracked screen: étape 2, image 3 de 3

    • If your display is badly cracked, covering it with a layer of clear packing tape may allow the suction cup to adhere. Alternatively, very strong tape may be used instead of the suction cup. If all else fails, you can superglue the suction cup to the broken screen.

    • Do your best to follow the rest of the guide as described. However, once the glass is broken, it will likely continue to crack as you work, and you may need to use a metal prying tool to scoop the glass out.

    • Wear eye protection. The glass may break, sending pieces flying.

    • Removing the screen involves using an opening pick and/or halberd spudger to separate the adhesive securing the screen to the frame.

    • As you slice through the adhesive, note the following:

    • The adhesive on the long edges of the iPad is about 4 mm wide. Avoid slicing deeper than that, or you risk damaging the display panel.

    • The adhesive on the short edges of the iPad is about 2 mm wide. Avoid slicing deeper than that.

    • Take especially care when slicing near the home button and charging port to avoid damaging the flex cables.

    • Take extra care when you slice near the front facing camera, to avoid damaging or smearing it.

  4. iPad Pro 12.9" 2nd Gen Front Facing Camera Replacement, Heat the left edge: étape 4, image 1 de 2 iPad Pro 12.9" 2nd Gen Front Facing Camera Replacement, Heat the left edge: étape 4, image 2 de 2
    • Apply a heated iOpener to the left edge of the screen to loosen the adhesive underneath. Apply the iOpener for at least 5 minutes.

    • A hair dryer, heat gun, or hot plate may also be used, but be careful not to overheat the device.

    • The display adhesive of the iPad is strong and the glass breaks easily. You need to reheat and reapply the iOpener in each section several times during the display removal.

  5. iPad Pro 12.9" 2nd Gen Front Facing Camera Replacement, Anti-Clamp instructions: étape 5, image 1 de 3 iPad Pro 12.9" 2nd Gen Front Facing Camera Replacement, Anti-Clamp instructions: étape 5, image 2 de 3 iPad Pro 12.9" 2nd Gen Front Facing Camera Replacement, Anti-Clamp instructions: étape 5, image 3 de 3

    • The next three steps demonstrate the Anti-Clamp, a tool we designed to make the opening procedure easier. If you aren't using the Anti-Clamp, skip down three steps for an alternate method.

    • For complete instructions on how to use the Anti-Clamp, check out this guide.

    • Pull the blue handle backwards to unlock the Anti-Clamp's arms.

    • Place an object under your iPad so it rests level between the suction cups.

    • Position the suction cups near the middle of the left edge—one on the top, and one on the bottom.

    • Hold the bottom of the Anti-Clamp steady and firmly press down on the top cup to apply suction.

    • If you find that the surface of your iPad is too slippery for the Anti-Clamp to hold onto, use tape to create a grippier surface.

    • Pull the blue handle forward to lock the arms.

    • Turn the handle clockwise 360 degrees or until the cups start to stretch.

    • Make sure the suction cups remain aligned with each other. If they begin to slip out of alignment, loosen the suction cups slightly and realign the arms.

  7. iPad Pro 12.9" 2nd Gen Front Facing Camera Replacement: étape 7, image 1 de 2 iPad Pro 12.9" 2nd Gen Front Facing Camera Replacement: étape 7, image 2 de 2
    • Wait one minute to give the adhesive a chance to release and present an opening gap.

    • If your screen isn't getting hot enough, you can use a hair dryer to heat along the left edge of the iPad.

    • For complete instructions on how to use a hair dryer, check out this guide.

    • Insert an opening pick under the screen when the Anti-Clamp creates a large enough gap.

    • If the Anti-Clamp doesn't create a sufficient gap, apply more heat to the area and rotate the handle clockwise half a turn.

    • Don't crank more than a half a turn at a time, and wait one minute between turns. Let the Anti-Clamp and time do the work for you.

    • Skip the next two steps.

  8. iPad Pro 12.9" 2nd Gen Front Facing Camera Replacement, Apply a suction handle: étape 8, image 1 de 1
    • Once the screen is warm to touch, apply a suction handle to the left edge of the iPad's screen, above the Smart Connector port and as close to the edge as possible.

  9. iPad Pro 12.9" 2nd Gen Front Facing Camera Replacement, Insert an opening pick: étape 9, image 1 de 3 iPad Pro 12.9" 2nd Gen Front Facing Camera Replacement, Insert an opening pick: étape 9, image 2 de 3 iPad Pro 12.9" 2nd Gen Front Facing Camera Replacement, Insert an opening pick: étape 9, image 3 de 3
    • While holding down the corners of the iPad, repeatedly pull up on the screen, then ease it back down to weaken the adhesive. This will eventually create a small gap in the seam.

    • If the edge cools down during the pulling process, reheat the edge with an iOpener before proceeding.

    • Once you've created a small gap, insert the tip of an opening pick into the gap.

    • Don't insert your opening pick deeper than 3–4 mm, or you risk permanently damaging the display panel.

  10. iPad Pro 12.9" 2nd Gen Front Facing Camera Replacement, Slice the adhesive: étape 10, image 1 de 3 iPad Pro 12.9" 2nd Gen Front Facing Camera Replacement, Slice the adhesive: étape 10, image 2 de 3 iPad Pro 12.9" 2nd Gen Front Facing Camera Replacement, Slice the adhesive: étape 10, image 3 de 3
    • Reapply the iOpener to the bottom left corner of the iPad for at least 2 minutes, spanning from the opening pick to the home button.

    • After letting the adhesive soften, insert an opening pick or halberd spudger into the gap next to the opening pick.

    • Don't insert your slicing tool deeper than 3–4 mm, or you risk permanently damaging the display panel.

    • Use an opening pick or halberd spudger to slice the adhesive along the bottom left side of the iPad. If the slicing becomes difficult, reheat the edge and try again.

  11. iPad Pro 12.9" 2nd Gen Front Facing Camera Replacement, Insert an opening pick: étape 11, image 1 de 1

    • The iPad shown in the following two steps is the iPad Pro 12.9" 1st Generation. The internals look slightly different but the taping procedure is the same.

    • The display cables in this iPad are very short. Read the next two steps before you proceed.

    • Do not pivot the screen about the lower edge. The display cables don't have enough slack to allow for this and will tear if you do not slide the screen towards the front-facing camera as you lift.

    • The display cables will tear if you raise the screen more than 90º.

    • Lift up the upper edge of the screen and slide the entire screen towards the front-facing camera to access the iPad's internal components.

    • Use masking tape to tape the lower edge of the screen to the frame to prevent the screen from slipping.

    • This step shows one way to support the screen using masking tape. You can also turn the iPad sideways. Make sure not to strain the display cables with whatever method you choose.

    • Attach a long strip of masking tape to the top edge of the screen. Fold the tape over the edge and make sure that the tape is attached securely.

    • Attach the other end of the strip to the bottom edge of the iPad frame to hold the screen at an angle. Make sure the tape attaches securely to the frame.

    • It's important to disconnect the battery before you proceed further. Detaching or connecting the display cables with the battery plugged in can cause a short that will destroy touchscreen functionality.

    • Use a Phillips screwdriver to remove the six screws securing the logic board EMI shield:

    • Two 2.4 mm-long screws

    • Four 1.2 mm-long screws

  27. iPad Pro 12.9" 2nd Gen Front Facing Camera Replacement, Remove the logic board EMI shield: étape 27, image 1 de 3 iPad Pro 12.9" 2nd Gen Front Facing Camera Replacement, Remove the logic board EMI shield: étape 27, image 2 de 3 iPad Pro 12.9" 2nd Gen Front Facing Camera Replacement, Remove the logic board EMI shield: étape 27, image 3 de 3
    • Lift the logic board EMI shield from the edge nearest the top of the iPad.

    • Peel up the EMI shield from the logic board.

    • This takes a bit of force due to the many tiny clips securing the shield, and the shield may deform slightly. That's okay—try to keep the deformation to a minimum, and it will lay flat when you reinstall it and screw it down.

    • Remove the logic board EMI shield.

    • Use the pointed end of a spudger to pry up and disconnect the display and digitizer cables from their logic board sockets.

    • To re-attach press connectors like this one, carefully align and press down on one side until it clicks into place, then repeat on the other side. Do not press down on the middle. If the connector is misaligned, the pins can bend, causing permanent damage.

    • These cables are very delicate, and the connectors can damage easily if they're misaligned. When you reattach the cables to the logic board, try to have as much slack on the cables and gently press the connectors onto their sockets.

Conclusion

If possible, turn on your device and test your repair before installing new adhesive and resealing.

To reassemble your device, follow these instructions in reverse order.

During reassembly, apply new adhesive where it's necessary after cleaning the relevant areas with isopropyl alcohol (>90%).

The best way to secure the screen is to apply a sheet of custom-cut double-sided tape to the back of the screen.

Take your e-waste to an R2 or e-Stewards certified recycler.
