Causes of common Tablet repair issues

Given tablets are so affordable and convenient, most households have at least one or two lying around. Especially if you’re part of a family. In between catching Stan episodes and chatting with your cousins in Europe, your tablet could be the victim of any of the following factors over time that lead to the issues listed above.

  • Physical Damage: This is perhaps the most common cause of tablet issues. Accidental drops, bumps, or pressure can lead to cracked screens, damaged hardware, and other physical impairments. Even small drops can sometimes cause internal damage that isn’t immediately visible.

  • Battery Degradation: Over time, the battery in a tablet can degrade, leading to issues like not holding a charge, draining quickly, or even swelling. This degradation is natural and happens with all rechargeable batteries, especially after many charging cycles.

  • Software Glitches or Corruption: Tablets can experience software problems such as system crashes, freezing, or slow performance. These issues can be due to corrupted files, unsuccessful updates, or software conflicts.

  • Water or Liquid Damage: Exposure to liquids is a common problem for electronic devices, including tablets. Even a small amount of liquid can cause significant damage to internal components, leading to malfunctioning or complete failure.

  • Overheating: Tablets can overheat due to prolonged usage, running resource-intensive applications, or being in a hot environment. Overheating can cause the device to shut down unexpectedly and, over time, can damage internal components.

  • Dust and Debris Accumulation: Dust, dirt, and debris can accumulate inside a tablet, especially in ports and speakers. This can lead to issues like poor sound quality, charging problems, or, in severe cases, internal damage due to overheating or short circuits.

Most of these causes can be mitigated with regular and ad hoc maintenance before they spiral into larger problems.

Friendly and great service. I made the mistake of having Buzztime change out the battery instead of me having Apple diagnose the problem first. Buzztime $129 for third party battery. Apple $115 for Apple battery. Kicking myself. So be sure before hand.
