Tablet Repair

Absolute Computers is now offering repair services on Apple iPad and Android tablets! As always, we provide free diagnostics. Once we review your tablet and the problem you are having, we can provide you with a quote on getting the issue resolved.

The most common problem with an iPad or Android tablet is a cracked screen or broken glass. Touch screens have two layers of glass that make up the display. The lower layer is the LCD that generates the image. The top layer is called a digitizer. The digitizer is the layer of glass you touch with your fingers. It turns that input into digital instructions for your apps. If you see or feel cracks in the glass, but can still see the image on the screen clearly, it is most likely the digitizer that is broken. A broken digitizer may also mean that the screen does not respond to your touch commands. If there are colors, lines, or bleeding edges on your display, then that is an LCD issue.  We can repair either problem. We see perhaps 10 broken digitizers for every broken LCD, we can tell you which problem your have but usually it will be the digitizer.

We keep iPad digitizers and LCD screens in stock so we can quickly turn around your repair. Due to the large number of different Android tablets, we generally have to order the correct parts for these tablets. Shipping time is normally 3-5 business days. Please bring / ship your AC adapter with your tablet!  Please let us know if there was any liquid / water damage to your tablet.

Android Pricing

Pricing for Android repairs is similar to that for iPads.   Please note that it does not make sense to spend $129 to repair a tablet that you bought from a discount store for $115.   Unfortunately we see many very cheaply made tablets that fail sometimes days after purchase, however well made tablets such as the Nexus or Xoom are worth repairing and will provide years of use.

As an example, we charge $154 for a Asus Transformer TF300T digitizer replacement.

      We are conveniently located to computer users in Apex, Cary, Clayton, Durham, Fuquay-Varina, Garner, Holly Springs, Knightdale, Morrisville, North Raleigh, Wake Forest, Wendell and Zebulon.        We also have customers coming from  Angier, Chapel Hill, Carrboro,  Fayetteville, Fort Bragg,  Sanford,Spring Lake and Rocky Mount.  We have tablets sent to us for repairs from across North Carolina and the 48 contiguous states of the US plus Puerto Rico.
