Most tablets come with a warranty, whether it's 90 days or a year. Some tablets, additionally, have extended warranties available that may extend the period for which a tablet is covered. A recent study from N.E.W. Customer Service Companies found that repair a tablet costs 50%-100% of the cost of a new tablet.

Typical costs:

  • If the tablet was purchased in the past year it is likely to be covered by a manufacturer's warranty. While repairs or replacement can be covered by warranties, there are often shipping fees associated with tablet repair. Plan on shipping fees of $10-$25.
  • If a tablet is out of warranty or cannot be fixed by the manufacturer, there are shops that offer repair services. Third-party repair shops make repairs such as screen and LED replacements. Typically, replacing glass on a tablet costs about $100-$200, depending on the model. Replacing the LED, too, typically costs $50-$75 extra. For example, Mission Repair, based in Kansas, offers a variety of repair services for tablets[1] , most in the $100-$180 range.
What should be included:
  • Depending on the service provided and the vendor, a customer should typically expect an iPad to be returned in full functioning order with the customer's apps and documents accessible.
Additional costs:
  • Those with the know-how and the tools can make repairs to their own tablets. Parts and tools are available through sites such as Amazon or eBay. Repair kits cost $50-$100.
Discounts:
  • Websites such as iFixit offer a variety of instructional videos[2] that provide detailed how-to guides for repairing various parts on tablets.
Shopping for tablet repair:
  • CNET offers tips consumers should know before fixing their smart devices[3] .
