    I have an ipad 2. The screen was cracked. The new screen was not put on yet. I dropped the ipad and now it won't turn on. I have some questions. How do I test components to see if they work? Where can I get equipment to test ipad components?

    Welcome to the forum gtibbetts,
    Some solutions we have for fixing a broken iPad is to make an appointment with the Genius Bar at your nearest Apple Store....you will not need your receipt as they can look up all relevant info at the store. They will most probably offer to replace your iPad but for a cost...it's normally half of the original cost of the iPad. If this is fine by you, make sure you do a complete backup of your iPad before you go.
    There are other businesses that can do this for you which will probably be cheaper but be aware that this will void your warranty, but then again your warranty would already be voided because of the drop. If you do replace with Apple, your warranty is reinstated. I have also heard many members who have gone the cheaper route then find that their WiFi will not work as this has been damaged by the replacing of the screen.
    “Here are some great web sites to aid you in your repair search:

    For those of you not living in the USA, here is a link whereby you can select your country and then be directed to the Apple site for your country:

    That said, I will now move your thread to the iPad DIY forum where you have a better chance of receiving more help

    Gtibbetts,,

    Also, please buy a case for your iPad. The iPad is expensive and should be protected from accidental damage.

    There's no way to tell without knowing the exact circumstances of the fall. You could end up with nothing more than cosmetic damage to internal damage requiring replacement of the iPad.
