She droped her iPad then this happened:

Hello Mission Repair fans…

We got a call from a customer yesterday that said “I cracked my iPad, and I can see the electronics inside of it!”

We’ve found that this a very common issue for our customers, but for the “first timer” it can be a bit unnerving. The glass on these units is fragile and cracked pieces of the glass can actually fall out and expose the internals of the unit.

Here’s a common looking cracked white iPad as we receive them here at Mission Repair:

A close-up shows the missing pieces:

If you read my blog a few days ago, we suggested adding strips of tape to the face of the broken glass to stop pieces from getting loose. You can reread that blog here.

The answer is that most of the time your iPad will continue to work like it’s design to; even with the glass hunks missing. However, be aware that this greatly “ups the odds” of a failure. When you can see the inside of your device, it’s time to get it repaired!

We constantly receive units in from customers all over the country and we are experts at this kind of repair.

Questions about your next iPad repair? Give us a call at 866-638-8402.

Take care, Ryan

Let’s celebrate! Mission Repair Lakewood is open and rocking!

Hello friends, thanks for your patience as we got our Colorado location up and running…and thank you to every one of our new customers (and 2 repeat customers) that came into the store yesterday! It’s great to see that we’re welcome here in the Denver area! Once we shut down, closed the doors, and revisited our day yesterday, I splurged with a toast to this Colorado crew.

Yes it’s true, we didn’t have formal glass stemware, no party favors or music, but we did get to celebrate a little as all of our efforts were realized at the end of the day.

Now it’s February 3rd, 2015 and we’re back at it from the Lakewood location until tomorrow afternoon. Some of us will be heading back to Olathe, Kansas tomorrow and back to the Corporate headquarters after we close tomorrow night. That will leave our crew here in Lakewood to do their thing…and it’s looking like we will be continuing to interview for the technician and customer service positions, so give us a call at 720-897-6297 to set up an interview if you’re interested!

Thanks for reading, Ryan
