Top Tablet Repair related questions
In most cases, no. Your hired tablet repair expert has the tools, apart from the skill and years of experience in repairing Apple, Samsung, or Lenovo tablets. They’ve done many tablet screen repairs, tablet battery replacements and most common tablet repair jobs. Some repairmen may even have the replacement parts ready for your repair job, so you shouldn’t have to supply them with any items.
That depends on the nature of the damage and the repairs needed. Replacing a cracked screen or old battery can take a couple of hours. If the tablet only needs a firmware or software update to get it to work, this can take less than an hour. The longest time to fix a tablet is if it was dropped in water. For this fix, expect at least 3-4 days to dry out its components.
If you run a business that provides tablet repair services, you can surely hire Taskers to help you. Apart from tablet repair, you can hire a Tasker for hundreds of different jobs to help you set up your home office or shop like game console repair, circuit board repair, computer repair or even uncommon tasks like toy assembly or furniture delivery. All you have to do is make a post on our platform with the appropriate details to attract the right Taskers.
That depends on the damage, how it’s fixed and the availability of repair services. A broken case or damaged screen can be replaced within an hour, as will replacing an old battery. If there’s no queue of other people having their tablets repaired, you can have your tablet fixed and working straight away. But if your tablet was dropped in water, you’ll have to leave the tablet with the repair service to dry for at least three days.
Your best bet would be to find and hire a tablet repair specialist on Airtasker. Just make a post on our platform with all the crucial details. Don’t forget to list your address, your budget and how soon you want your tablet repaired. Within minutes, Taskers closest to you will ask about your job and give you a free quote.

The tablet’s charging port may be broken, or the battery has reached the end of its charging life cycle. You can take the tablet to a repair shop or hire a tablet repair specialist on Airtasker to have a look. They can find the problem and let you know if it can still be repaired. You can decide from there if you still want to have the tablet fixed or buy a new tablet.
What do tablet repair services include?
Tablet repair services include all that’s necessary to fix a broken or non-working digital tablet and bring it back to working order. This is more than a local tablet screen repair service since a non-working digital tablet can have other issues apart from a cracked screen. This service might include replacing broken screens or casings, making software or firmware updates, replacing the battery, opening up the tablet to dry out the inner workings if the tablet was submerged.
Troubleshooting the problem
Your tablet repairman begins the service by inspecting the tablet for cracks, breaks or other damage on the screen and its casing. They can test the software and firmware for the latest versions or check for the presence of malware. After finding the causes of any hardware or software issues, the repairman proceeds with the appropriate fixes.
Cracked screen and casing replacement
To replace the screen or casing, they turn off the power and disassemble the tablet, taking care not to touch any of the surrounding components. They then remove the cracked screen or broken casing, then gently dust off the internal parts.
Your hired expert may attach the new screen or casing with or without adhesives, depending on the tablet’s design. Your repairman can apply isopropyl alcohol to the new screen to ensure that it’s free of tiny dust particles. If adhesives were used for the new screen or casing, the tablet is left to dry before powering it on.
Fixing a tablet that fell in water
Another common request for tablet owners is fixing a tablet that was accidentally dropped into a swimming pool, sink or bathtub. Your hired tablet repairman can repair most brands, whether it’s an Apple iPad, Samsung Galaxy Tab, Asus or Lenovo tablet. Your repairman can partially dismantle the tablet to disconnect the battery and dry its internal components. This includes removing any SIM cards and memory cards.
The repairman can wipe off any remaining water with a lint-free cloth, taking care not to damage any parts. Once the tablet has been opened up to aerate its inner workings, the tablet and all its parts are placed in a large zip-lock plastic bag. The bag is filled with packets of silica gel and sealed; this is to draw out any remaining moisture and completely dry the tablet’s parts.
Sometimes a tablet won’t work due to an old battery that has reached or exceeded its maximum number of charges. Your tablet repair specialist can carefully open the tablet, detach the old battery, attach a new one and close the case.
Software updates & fixes
Should the issue be due to a software or firmware problem, your repairman can download new updates and install them onto your tablet. Some repairmen could install an older version of your tablet’s software or firmware in the meantime (if the latest updates were reported by your manufacturer to be less stable). Your repairman may advise you to install software updates later.
