Did this video help you?

anox anny: Should of used a heat gun or blow dryer to melt the glue, and that won't happen

Matthew Marcial: Poor baby.

windy49: Guess you should have watched the video from Android Authority. A 1500watt hairdryer worked fine. Also used some packing tape to keep the shards under control. Also - You CAN get the bezel with the replacement LCD and Digitizer. Has to come from China but they are out there about about $55.00. My unit is ready for a new LCD and Digitizer now and the old one came of nicely after the hair dryer and some patient prying with plastic tools.

Richard Rael: should have used a heat gun to remove the digitizer

BrianTokyo: Did you find the housing in the end? It seems a major pain to dettach it.

shameedify: Does this LCD assembly work with Android 4.1? I don't know what version is mine because the LCD is totally shattered and I don't have display working to upgrade or even find out which version I am on. But there is a good chance that I am on 4.1.

Eric Jones: They sell the gasket, digitizer lcd & glue for that on Ebay.

FIXED1T: yep heat gun is the best, and a temperature control version. If you use too much heat you will destroy the working LCD display in the broken Digitizer, well thats if your like me and don't want to pay out for a new LCD when your can split the Digitizer from the LCD. The repair then becomes $20 rather than $60+ for digitizer and LCD.

Paul Appleton: You need to use a heat gun to heat up the edge to soften the adhesive before you try and separate the screen and the surround, it took me around 30 minutes and I had no breaks or cut fingers

Taylor Sweat: Did you not use a heat gun?

sonyrulesbladZ: Awwwwr, so sorry, thanks a bunch though. I was just about to buy one :(

Nick Capaldi: heat them up it comes right off

Alkis Petinis: you just put a plastic card between the glass and the plastic housing and you can seperate them very easily!! DONT try with razors, screwdrivers and other metal things (you may damage the housing)!!!!

Dennis Leslie: I just did it in about 15 minutes total. Invest in a heat gun.

Erica Milch: all messed up.. throw it away

lilvipa1: IMPORTANT question folks - DO I need android 4.2.2 in order to successfully install lcd assembly? I have nexus 7 2012 version with 4.1.2 and ebay sellers are prefacing that 4.2 is required! 

Tony Xu: Gorgeous tablet, but is plagued by the poor build quality. As much as I hate to admit I'll have to switch over to the iPad. I really wish Google finds a better manufacturer. Asus is total crap when it comes to some of the products they make.

Chris Carlson: +Matt Baucom +Liz E 

Jason Bowers: +Matt Baucom +Liz E 

glitchsys: youtube.com/watch?v=Ygut0Z4vxBE#t=13m38s Question. Is this the same thing? This is at 13m38s. It seems like he separated the glass from Plastic Bezel without too much difficulty.

kleonard84: Not to say I had an easy time with this, but if you can get under the adhesive tape and use IT to pull out the glass, it makes things go a LOT easier.

PuzzleSolver: Yeeeaahh... not possible without a heat plate... stupid people selling the glass(digitizer) only.. and after that it's even crazier trying to get the LCD back on the new digitizer.. ALWAYS BUY THE COMPLETE LCD/DIGITIZER!

Aar0n_G: Thanks!!

InnerTag: no, the tablet had a broken screen/digitizer. i was replacing the screen with a new one that i bought on eBay. However the one's listed on ebay do not include the plastic mounting bezel (pictured on the left). If you're attempting this type of repair, make sure you find a complete assembly which includes the Digitizer w/LCD AND plastic mounting bezel.

Robert Stefanovic: I just replaced my screen with a heat gun at 900 Fahrenheit , Worked like a charm. Replaced bezel in less then 10 min. .

InnerTag: Most likely your LCD flex cable is bad. This cable, which connects the LCD to the logic board is extremely fragile and will break if it's bent. Get a new flex cable off eBay (their about $10) and install with care. If the issue continues w/the new LCD flex cable, then your LCD is bad and the digitizer/LCD assembly should be returned to the place of purchase.

zkyong1992: problem is i just sent it for warranty and they said they've changed the screen.but the screen protector is still on weirdly?shouldnt it be gone?mine even takes like 10hr++ to charge and they said they've changed the battery too,could they be bluffing?ps i sent it to the official asus service centre.

Shaheer Khan: wait whoes andrew

Pete Doyle: Thank you, that was very helpful.

PuzzleSolver: I just bought the glass (digitizer) alone... How do I get the LCD off of the old digitizer?

brockchiv: OK thanks

InnerTag: If you feel confident disassembling and reassembling components, then you should do fine with this. The internal cables are Extremely fragile, specifically the LCD flex cable and digitizer screen cable. Be extra careful with these cables. As stated in the video, i'd recommend getting the entire assembly and you'll avoid having to deal with the bezel 'ungluing' and remounting. Good Luck.

InnerTag: The yellowing is coming from the LCD. We've repaired dozens of units now and a couple have had yellow spots on the LCD. You should return the screen to the vendor you purchased as a 'defective' unit and have them send you a new one.

Cris Landefeld: A few minutes research would have told you this. Asus is not the first to have a display fused to a bezel.

gchiquis74: So are you going to post another video of you reassembling it

Landon Robison: Andrew took care of my Nexus 7 and it was a fast turn around. Thanks. It looks great, like new. Let him do your work!

Fredrik Karlsson: I heated the lcd over the kitchen stove while I gently separated the pieces, took me about 15 minutes and no broken glass :D

Camilo Mesias: ...Once the adhesive is loose you can work a plastic shim or guitar pick around the edge. The adhesive was on some kind of gasket - make sure you get between gasket and bezel as that helps to lift off the glass intact with the gasket. My glass was already broken but having done this once I think I could get a whole display out of the bezel without breaking it. My replacement didn't have a gasket so I used 3mm double sided tape, it was very effective.

InnerTag: i applied a two part epoxy to the bezel frame where the old glue was originally applied. i then let the digitizer/LCD/bezel assembly dry overnight; then reassembled the entire tablet. There are other YouTube vids which show the entire disassembly of the tablet. good luck!

italoscala: the exact same thing happened to mine, a very superficial crack and only the bottom half lost the capacity of receiving touch...i noticed its been 2 weeks since u commented, so what have u done to urs?did u try to replace it urself?

Gareth_DaBell: You just put it on a a radiator in a towel to heat up the glue gently and it will peel away.

Daniel Tillus: yeah i think you should of used a heat gun

jahlaya jackson: I cracked the screen on my nexus 7 and have no idea how to fix it my self. Do you know any online store or somewhere where i can send it because im so lost and just need it fixed?

QuickScop3zzMC2BP: Ur supose to use a heat gun at low setting smh

jesseguerra2012: your reply is helpful, thank-you. What would the 'package' be called (ie the entire assembly), and where would be a reliable place to get it??

Frank Chavez: Thanks for taking care of and replacing the Nexus 7 screen. Great job on this and I can't tell that it is not new after getting it back. Everything was done in a timely manner as promised and working very well. Thanks again Andrew.

zkyong1992: my n7 screen now has a very noticeable yellowish tinge.is that normal?

AzManApple: I use silicone adhesive acid free seems to work pretty well I would refrain from using any sort of adhesive that contains acid

InnerTag: i used 3M 2mm double sided tape, however it's not completely holding the digitizer w/LCD onto the bracket. I've used this tape on other digitizer repairs and it worked fine, but I think the weight of this digitizer w/LCD will need a stronger adhesive. I'm going to take it apart again and attempt to use a stronger adhesive or more tape.

AllAboutTheGamesHD: Heat it up with a hair drying, let it the sun for 30 mins before you try to remove it... -.- I successfully fixed my Nexus 7 and I'm a novice.
