/ tablet screen replacement
if anyone can suggest somewhere i can get it fixed (its not a job i'm happy trying myself) it would be appreciated
Try Wilkie14C on here. Alternatively, it turns out it's not that tricky to replace them yourself - Mr TC has just replaced the screen on his son's Samsung Galaxy tab after said son discovered that leaning with all one's weight on the screen doesn't provide the best outcome...
You should be able to get stuff off it very easily by using a USB cable to a PC if the screen isn't replaceable viably. And most apps work online anyway, don't they?
The Nexus has the outer glass screen, digitizer and LCD bonded together and the only option is to fit a complete unit. It isn't as bad as it sounds though with the new screen unit coming it at 40 quid (ebay)and it being fairly easy to do as long as you don't have sausage fingers!
its more the inconvenience i have the tablet set up perfectly for making music on the move and trading digital currencies
thanks for that
You don't happen to know anything about replacing the screen on a Samsung series 9 Ultrabook do you??
Only that they are expensive! I've not had the pleasure yet and at this price I prob never will!
item number - 331080190844
Thanks! It was the part number I wanted - I was trying to find the cost, but I couldn't work out how to open the unit to look at it :o)
At that price, I probably won't bother as the damage I have is minimal. It might even be fixable (little bright lines that look like creases?).
Anyway, now I'm musing to myself - thanks for the information!
No prob, happy to help all comers if home repair is viable!
We just fixed three in the office. The hard part is getting the old screen out of the bezel, but a hair drier and patience is the key. The rest is easy.
Buy a new one. I broke mine about a year ago and its remained in a draw ever since. It's crazy expensive to repair compared to a new on.
how did you work that out? if i can pick up the replacement part for about £40 and do it myself that is a lot cheaper than a new tablet
Yea I often have to use a heat gun, just to soften the glue, have to be really careful on plastic cases!
i guess if it comes to it i could even replace the bezel and it would still be cheaper than a new tablet.
It wont come to that mate, just take your time, feel the force luke
