    OK, I was bad. The screen on my iPad mini has a minor crack. What should I do?
    Is it trash? I just backed it up.

    It's not trashed if it still works. If it bothers you, you can have the glass replaced but if all works I see no reason to trash it.

    eBay seller offers a new screen for $59 including instructions and tools. Any idea if this can work on an iPad?
    I did it twice with a PC laptop screen.

    Hi RLBucko - welcome to the forum! :)

    First, is your concern about the crack (won't asked 'how' it happened - ;)) a cosmetic or functional one, i.e. is the crack interfering w/ your use of the iPad, e.g. if in a corner that does not required the 'touch screen' then probably unimportant, unless wide enough to allow moisture to enter?

    Second, what is your warranty situation? You might want to bring it to an Apple store (if easy for you?) to see 'what' their advice may be? Finally, replace the screen yourself for that price seems reasonable if you're handy in this area and if your warranty will not be compromised - good luck & let us know your results? May help others!

    I don't suggest replacing the screen yourself. I tried to do it for my iPhone 4 and bought one those kits. Ended up kill my warranty and the phone went in the garbage can.

    Looking on amazon, I see repair kits for around $30. iFixIt is a great site to see how to tear it apart. iPad Repair - iFixit

    I have pulled apart my 1st gen ipad. It's not as hard as it looks.
