    Ipad 2 got wet. Still works! but Whats broke?

    Well my Ipad2 got wet, a water bottle leaked in the same bag that the Ipad2 was in.. It boots up fine and everything seems to work but the screen is screwed up. Now my question is what part to I need.? Just the LCD? Thanks for the help...

    Hi there--sorry for that happening.

    I would recommend that you make an appointment with an Apple genius. They can give you an estimate for the repair or the cost for a replacement.

    Good luck.

    iPad 2 ~ Wi-Fi ~ 32 GB | MacBook Air 13-inch 4 GB RAM/128 GB | Apple TV (3rd Gen) | iPod Classic 80 GB | iPod Touch 32 GB (4th Gen)

    Thanks...I was planning on fixing myself..Will they look at if for free? New to working on an iPad but have made many other computer and laptop repairs... Think its just the LCD?

    Water may have gotten in between the screen and the digitizer.Repair would require,at the least,a complete strip down to remove all traces of moisture from the interior of the iPad.I think it best if you take it to apple for a repair quote.

    ifixit.com gives the iPad 2 a score of 2 out of 10 for user repair (10 being most easily repaired); so think about it carefully. If you decide to go ahead they are also a good resource for guides and parts.

    I'm sure there are others. I only know about them because I look forward to their iOS device teardowns each year; shortly after each is released.

    Thanks for the replys...I figure that its days are number no matter what's done. But if I can put a screen in for $89 like I see online than its worth it. For $250 repairs forget it just get a new one..
    It looks a little tricky to take apart but totally doable..
