During the first 10 minutes I was unable to enjoy the event. But Jason's lovely singing took me out of the trance, and I suddenly forgot about it. I forgot about my broken iPad until it was time for me to drive home. While waiting for the parking to clear out of cars, I went through my iPad.
Do you remember this?
This was my broken iPad from just 8 months ago, so when my iPad was broken again, I thought: "Tough luck!". I inspected it --- the screen wasn't broken or cracked --- not at all. I looked at it, it looked repairable, so I told myself: "I will bring it to a Mac Center tomorrow, if it's a goner then let's decide if it's worth it to get a new one". You have to understand, I love my iPad so it is painful for me to just let it go.
Anyway, I was a woman with a plan. But when I got home, I immediately searched online to find out if someone else had a similar problem --- I just wanted to know if there was any hope. I typed in: "I dropped my iPad, the screen is now red", and I got gazillions of links to forums and YouTube videos, but I clicked one forum and loaded one video. Both the video and the forum gave me the same answer. Apparently, when you drop your iPad the way I did (vertically), you can shake the pixels inside and that's what happened to my toy. They said all you have to do is to hit it again --- and the video showed how the man hit his iPad with a hammer several times to bring it back to normal. Understand that at that point I was thinking: "If it doesn't work, who cares? My iPad's busted anyways so I've got nothing to lose. If it works, however, I'd be ecstatic." ---- so I took the risk. I got the remote control, tapped it lightly at the bottom --- and then a little harder when I realized the instructions said: to tap it hard, and slowly the screen came back to normal.
I couldn't believe it. I revived my iPad! I didn't have to buy a new one! I've had two lucky streaks with my iPad ---- I hope I don't get a third.
In my sadness and hopelessness, I failed to take photos of how my iPad looked when it was broken, but imagine it looking like that. Please understand, I was much too depressed to even think it was worth documenting. Sorry. Just trust me, it worked. As long as you didn’t break the LCD screen, just shake it, tap it, hit it with a hammer --- problem solved!
