I had the same experience when replacing touch or LCD it's troublesome especially when the customer is meticulous. I just told her that what can original LCD gives you cannot have in replacement parts. She accepted my reason but she bargained atleast on a fair value.

hi i have a iPad mini 4 and its totally dead, I'm not sure if it's the board or battery thats faulty. if you connect the board to iTunes without the battery connected should it appear on iTunes if the board is working, confirming it's the battery thats faulty??? it's just i don't have a spare battery to test and don't want to waste money buying one just to test. many thanks jay

I have never repaired phones/pads, but i do know what you mean when you forget things.

I used to repair c.b radios for most of the uk, and even though i knew every type and done thousands, i sometimes had a "Soggy Brain Day", eather mistakes/forgotten checks or putting a unit back together and wondering "Did i check….?" yep memory loss.
And you have to take it apart again, you just have to LOL 😀

Paul Daniels says:

I have had that same situation in the past with the battery, those "Oh…. no…. " moments when you realise. Likewise, religious about it, but sometimes you get distracted at the wrong moment.

What miffs me the most about iPad Mini repairs is the strength of the connectors on the board. About two years ago we decided we were going to stop fixing them because we kept running into issues with those connectors getting damaged. Not from tech negligence, but people would keep breaking the same one and coming in with it to get it fixed. LOOOTS of repeat offenders. Those things can only take so many screen re-connects before just giving out.

Of course, NOW I have the tools and equipment to replace things like that, but back then I didn't and was just starting out. Really makes me mad because the cost of all this equipment is LESS than what we spent out-of-pocket over the years for replacing devices that we either broke further from negligence or in cases where it just didn't work afterwards and we were unable to figure out how or why, but replaced it under the rightfully placed norm of "it worked before you touched it".

I've been out of the loop on your videos for awhile, I think I know what I'm going to binge watch this weekend.

P.S. a few weeks ago I did my first successful TouchIC replacement on an iPhone 6. So far my K/D ratio is 0.5. First one was a failure and I learned from those mistakes. I was so amped when I saw touch work again, and a school teacher is now very happy to have a back up phone in case she needs it. I thank her for giving me the opportunity despite me telling her I could potentially destroy the device, but I suppose you can't pass up a potential free repair. I didn't quote her a dime, I just wanted the opportunity to practice. And I thank you as well. Heck, I thank Jessa and Louis too.
