Installing iPad Wi-Fi Logic Board
Replace your iPad Wi-Fi's internal logic board.
Insert a metal spudger between the top edge of the display assembly and the rear panel assembly.
Rotate the spudger away from you to release the tabs along the top edge of the display.
Insert a second metal spudger between the top edge of the display assembly and the rear panel assembly to keep the tabs from snapping back into place.
With one spudger, work your way along the right edge of the iPad, releasing tabs as you go.
Lift the display assembly away from the rear panel assembly by its bottom edge.
Do not attempt to remove the display at this time, as it is attached to the rear panel assembly.
In the following steps, you will disconnect the three cables attaching the display assembly to the logic board. The cables are for the following components:
Ambient Light Sensor
Display Data Cable
Use the edge of a plastic opening tool to flip up the retaining flaps holding the digitizer ribbon cables in their sockets on the logic board.
Be sure you are flipping up the retaining flap, not the socket itself.
Pull the digitizer ribbon cables straight out of their sockets.
Use a plastic opening tool to remove the ambient light sensor connector from its socket by gently prying upward.
Disconnect the display data cable from the main board by flipping up the metal retainer by its black plastic pull tab.
Pull the cable connector away from its socket.
Pull the connector parallel to the face of the logic board.
Remove the display assembly from the rear panel assembly.
|Step 9 — Logic Board|
Use the edge of a plastic opening tool to:
Pry the side button connector up off the logic board from underneath the wires.
Pry the speaker connector up off its socket on the logic board from beneath the speaker wires.
Carefully flip up the ZIF ribbon cable retaining flap on the socket near the headphone jack.
Be sure you are prying up on the retaining flap, not the socket itself.
Pull the headphone jack ribbon cable toward the left side of the iPad to disconnect it from its socket.
Remove the following screws securing the logic board to the rear panel assembly.
Two 4.56 mm T5 Torx screws.
Two 3.76 mm T5 Torx screws.
Use the edge of a plastic opening tool to carefully pry the dock cable connector straight up off the logic board.
Lift the logic board out of the rear panel assembly.
