    Hi,
    I'm trying to change the battery on my iPad2 and have some questions. Pics attached. It's an IPad 16GB Model-A1395 IPAD2 Serial DYTLT2X5DFHW
    The IPad 2 video I found does not correspond to my model. Specifically, IPad in video had a plug in speaker. Mine is(was) permanently attached to board. There is no plug, it soldered.

    Could someone please direct me to a video/PDF on my model? Or explain what needs to be disconnected to free up processor? Any assistance/advise would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks.

    Leaky

    If you go to this site, they have repair guides for all versions of the iPad 2. The WiFi only iPad 2 has two versions, the original and Revision A. Use the guide which matches your iPad. iPad 2 Repair

    Life scifan said , Ifixit guides will help , as will YouTube. That top ribbon cable does come off just peel the black tape back carefully then flip up the clip. Your version of iPad 2 is the revision A version. You’ll need to go slow and careful getting that Battery out. I use a plastic putty knife and be sure to get the adhesive plenty warm. The iPad 2 is the finickiest of iPads to work on with lots of gotchas and booby traps to overcome.

    Got one side of the logic board freed but the side of logic board near headphone jack/control board ribbon cable is not releasing. I don't know if its the age of the unit or what. I always error on side of caution with these boards. It could be me. Any suggestions?

    Make sure you have all the screws out there may be one in top right corner of logic board.

    There's a screw in that corner. There are 5 screws and the WiFi antenna connector to remove before the logic board can be removed. Check out steps 38, 42, 44, and 45 in the EMC 2560 repair guide section on battery replacement. This is the guide for your revision A iPad 2.

    Thanks for helping me through this. I had all the screws out. It was me hesitant to apply enough pressure.
    Logic Board and Battery are out. The repair guide stops. Question: Do I need to remove all the residual adhesive from old battery and if so, do I use a plastic scraper and rubbing alcohol or what? Or leave it and install the new battery? Thanks. Leaky

    You should remove the remains of the old adhesive as leaving it in place will prevent the battery from laying flat. Try rubbing the old adhesive off with your fingers and maybe an alcohol swab to remove any remaining residue.
