So, someone dropped our Ipad. It now has a broken screen . DH believes he can fix it with a £7 set off ebay, rather than spending £100 in store.
...he has had no previous technical/mecanical/electricianal/magical experiances... and I have a horrid feeling that this might not go as planned. He's convinced that Youtube and this ebay kit are all he needs.
So, what I'm asking is; AIBU to be untrusting of his ability to fix it? Has anyone else had any experiance of fixing these things?
Yep youTube is brilliant for tutorials on this sort of thing!!
I watched loads before I upgraded my macbook pro(2009) with a new SSD Drive and new battery a few months ago. And I'm a 61year old granny with no tech experience! Even my son was impressed!!lol Oh and it runs like a new machine now!
If he's willing to watch 3 different videos first, I think it'll be fine. I'm pretty sure you can learn almost anything on YouTube in 3 videos. Maybe not flying a plane but this, yes. It might not be perfect but it should be fine.
My father managed to do exactly this, he is very handy with most DIY things but not very tech minded. He managed no problem. Let your DP have a go and worst case scenario you have to take it to the shop and you've only wasted £7, best case scenario you save yourself £100.
Alternate opinion, yes Youtube could show your DH how to fix it however, if the iPad is within it's warranty and a non-Apple approved technician opens it and is then unable to fix it, it can't be repaired in store anymore.
Conveyencing is fairly easy, form off the Internet, fill it in following the land registry YouTube step by step video. Get a sworn ID check from a solicitor and send the form back to the land registry. Must admit it was with someone I trusted as otherwise I wouldn’t have been too sure how to pay the money over on exactly the right day that the name changed on the deeds as I didn’t know what day the house deeds changed.
