Is it baseball season already?

Hello there!

I’ve been out of the office for a few days on some personal R&R, and am just now getting back into the swing of these here at my home office.  Yes, I’ll get a chance to sneak in and get some repairs done this evening (yes, even the boss still does a few repairs from time to time) but for now I’m going to get some much needed writing done because so many of you have been asking!

Firstly, how did you enjoy the Super Bowl?  I’m sure that most Bronco fans thought it was spectacular; but I’ve heard from many “non-Bronco” fans that the Super Bowl was “terrible” or “Our team would have won if they were in it” or “Peyton Manning didn’t do anything”.

Well, the fact of the matter is that Denver stepped up as a team and did what they intended to do:  Win on Sunday.  So those that didn’t enjoy the game can just start to look forward to baseball season, right?

If you live in Kansas City and if you like baseball, then you must be gearing up for the 2016 season.  Coming off of the World Series makes things seem bit brighter for them this year.  The defending champs are ready to go (so I hear).

Well, even though the groundhog predicted an early Spring, if you step outside today here in my home town of Spring Hill, Kansas it’s only in the high-twenties Fahrenheit…it’s not time to grab your baseball glove and hit the practice fields yet.  We have a few months to go.

So what should we do this Sunday?  There’s no football on, so it looks like I’ll be caching up on some TV.  What a life.

I’ll be back soon with some Mission Repair info…Ryan

Now that’s what a cracked iPad looks like.

Good morning,

Every now and again I’ll snap a picture of a device that we receive for repair and share it here on the blog.  Some are normal “cracks” and bends; others are smashed up pretty good.  For some reason, my blog readers love looking at smashed units…so Carl at my Mission, Kansas store sent this picture to me last night:

Now that’s what a cracked iPad is supposed to look like, right?

I often wonder how these things happen…obviously this unit was dropped…but the exact story gets lost in the repair sometimes.  This unit appears to have been “dragged” along the concrete, like it fell off the roof of a car or slid down the driveway.  Most of the time, it doesn’t matter to us “how” it happened, but knowing sometimes satisfies the curiosity!

Have a cracked iPad Screen?  No problem.  We will take care of that repair for you, just drive on down to one of our locations (no appointment necessary) or give us a call and we’ll send FedEx to pick it up from your location anywhere in the USA.  Yes, even where you live, wherever that may be.

Apple 1:1 School Repair Program at Mission Repair

Hello there friends,

We’ve got a lot to talk about as we have made some simple changes in our Apple One to One School Repair program – if you didn’t already know, we offer repairs to schools around the country to assist in their efforts to maintain student devices.

Not only is this something that we have been doing for over 8 years (even before the One to One Program was released) and we’re happy to report that we are providing services for even some “Apple-Distinguished Schools” as time has progressed.

Why?  It’s a matter of economics.  There are scenarios that Mission Repair is a far better fit for some school districts than AppleCare.  Apple has done a good job of selling units and service programs, but they don’t do something that Mission Repair does, and that’s offer a better price on a service for a unit that has already been repaired once before.

It’s called our Got Repair program, and it’s the shining light that schools are looking for.

The best part about it is that even if you use our services as an “end user”, you get the Got Repair benefit automatically on our screen repairs.  Just check it out on our site, and you may know why Mission Repair stands above the rest.

Take care, Ryan

Have that family tablet repaired in time for Christmas!

Hi there everyone, Santa may be filling his sleigh with amazing presents for you, but maybe there’s something that Santa can’t deliver – but Mission Repair can!

Every year we have thousands of customers send in their devices for repair each December, and a lot of them are scrambling to get their devices repaired as Christmas presents! That’s right, this is a present that you can’t get in stores, and you can’t get from Santa (he doesn’t have any elves that repair electronics!) but you can get from Mission Repair.

iPad repairs are a huge selling service here at Mission Repair and we have parts in stock and incredible prices. We won’t bring it to you in a sleigh, it’ll arrive via FedEx or you can just stop by one of our locations! If you get your orders in now, there’s plenty of time to get it back before the Christmas holiday so don’t delay!

Happy Holidays, Ryan

What kind of tablet did you need repaired?

Good afternoon,

We just got a call from a customer asking if we fixed ASUS tablets…and the fact is that we do! Mission Repair offers the most complete line of tablet repairs– more than anywhere else you’ll find on the Internet.

We service thousands of tablet screens for schools across the country, and many Apple One to One Schools enjoy the expedited services we offer here at Mission Repair.

Thanks for reading, don’t live with that cracked screen for too long!

Talk to you later, Ryan

The Truth about MacBook Air Screens.

Good evening friends,

It’s late Friday night, I’m just finishing up my day at Mission Repair (working from home) and disaster struck my Apple notebook.

I personally use a 13″ MacBook Air at home. It’s been a great machine that hasn’t given me a bit of trouble until I made a mistake. It’s a mistake that even this late at night I feel that I need to share with my blog followers – a mistake that will prove to be costly. I grabbed my laptop by the screen to pick it up like I’ve done a many times before.

I picked it up by the top of the computer where the screen is, not by the bottom of the computer where the keyboard is. MISTAKE.

I’m going to stop writing and take a picture…you’ll see the beginning of this blog in the background, and everything will look normal as so:

IMG_0944

You can click on these pictures to get a close up look at what is going on.

But after I picked it up by the screen in the very spot that you see my thumb and hand, I squeezed a little too hard. Now when I apply just a slight bit of pressure to the bezel where my thumb is located, my image goes haywire:

IMG_0945

What you see here is a classic “broken LCD” on a MacBook Air. There are many degrees of “broken”. In fact, when someone has a broken LCD screen, it might physically appear cracked. It might looks like and “ink” stain running across the screen. Or it might in fact be like my situation where I can get the screen just into the correct position, not touch it and have it appear fine – but the slightest movement can show it’s ugly side.

I know that lifting a laptop by it’s screen is not the correct way to handle a laptop. The MacBook Air is so light and easy to carry at some point I made the decision that it would be OK to do so.

I did a quick search on Apple Discussion Forums and found a nice article on Considerations for a long life of your MacBook Air which give good advice on many maintenance and daily life considerations when owning one of these devices, but does not discuss “lifting” the unit by the lid. I guess that’s just common sense that I didn’t use.

In this day and age with tablets in and amongst my life it might just be a subconscious thing- I grab my tablet by the screen, right? Isn’t a tablet merely a laptop computer “lid” without a hardware keyboard? Well, this comparison of the two might be OK if only considering the physical aspects of the devices but they are truly two different devices…however somewhere in my mind it just felt OK to grab the screen of my computer.

My advice is…don’t do it. We constantly repair MacBook Air screens at Mission Repair. I’m lucky that I can just take my computer into my shop, buy a screen for myself and install it. This is not so easy to do for consumers that don’t own an electronics repair shop and I understand this – it’s why Mission Repair is in business.

Do your best to avoid the situation that I’m in unless you don’t mind paying for your computer to get repaired- but if you do, you know who to call. Shameless reminder: 866-638-8402. I’ll be taking mine into the tech lab tomorrow.

Have a great weekend everyone, take care.

Ryan
