QuickScop3zzMC2BP: Ur supose to use a heat gun at low setting smh
Neil Wardle: If you over heat a LCD it will turn yellow and cant be fixed, heat causes the chemicals in the screen to change and give a yellow colour.
Juana Marquez: I broked and replaced my nexus 7 but at that same moment i broked my WiFi antenna what would i have to replace in order that muy WiFi could work
Gareth_DaBell: You just put it on a a radiator in a towel to heat up the glue gently and it will peel away.
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.
Alex Ghiurau: @InnerTag I have successfully replaced my lcd BUT my N7 only booted up once with "16-bit" colors and with a middle vertical line. I disassembled it again and checked the lcd to mobo ribbon (con 7311) and also the power cable and now when i boot it up i only have a black flickering screen with that line in the middle - no more colors or logo whatsoever - only black flickering screen. Could you please give me some hints?
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.
dannytscfc: Just removed the housing from my broken LCD. Use a heat gun and it comes off fairly easily. I wouldn't recommend anybody try to take the housing off prior to heating up
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??
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.
TheJesseGuerra: Is it worth it economically and worth a novices effort to attempt to fix the screen myself. Can a person with no tech experience do this?
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.
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.
zkyong1992: my n7 screen now has a very noticeable yellowish tinge.is that normal?
Daniel Tillus: yeah i think you should of used a heat gun
prolfinator: Shoulda left it in the sun or used a heat gun to heat the tape and remove the grey rim
Shaheer Khan: wait whoes andrew
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.
InnerTag: you need the complete assembly fused together; those parts will not work separately. Return those parts and purchase the fused digitizer/LCD screen, or purchase the complete digitizer/LCD/bezel assembly from the link in this video description above.
Shion093: Hello, i bought only the digitizer , but when i discovered that the LCD and digitizer are fused together i just purchase the LCD only, so now i have the LCD and the digitizer for separate, i will work/look fine? whats you opinion about this? thanks in advance... The LCD is coming at my home in 2-3 days BTW.
Richard Steventon: I put mine in the oven inside a glass tray (so it did not touch any metal) at 180F for 5 minutes at a time until the glue went soft (took several sessions of 5 minutes)..... then it came apart SUPER easy!
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!
Ken Chen: ya, good luck with that, you are supposed to heat up the glass up to 200 'F and then remove the old glass and digitizer from the LCD.
PuzzleSolver: I just bought the glass (digitizer) alone... How do I get the LCD off of the old digitizer?
Steve Campbell: yeah a gap or a broken connection has occurred, such a pity lol
MobTec2001: I did one of these recently. Removing the glass from the bezel isn't actually too bad if you heat it a bit. I found the big problem was getting the new screen to fit the bezel. Mine was like a fraction of a mm too large and therefore a complete fit wasn't possible and ended up breaking the new screen trying to get it in.
JeremyB796: I have a question, My mother left her Tablet hanging half off the desk.
The glass broke in a small area, and as it has happened before, I though it was shot.
However, I found out that even though the glass is broken, the digitizer survived...
is it possible to just by the glass?
Ron Elkin: I saw a video which explained you need to heat the unit first. Either in the sun (30-40 minutes) or gently with a heat gun or possible a hairdryer.
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.
G00G00L: Look here. It is possible to separate the LCD from the digitizer. Search Google for "
How to separate the LCD from a broken digitizer glass of the Asus Nexus 7" and choos the xda-forum link...
midkidable: Wow, thank you. I was amost gonna do it myself :/
Daniel Botteicher: A little heat will go a long way! A heat gun or hair dryer, or even leaving it out in the sun for 45 mins and the bezel will come right off. Just for future reference!
Aar0n_G: do you think this technique would work to remove the Digitizer from the LCD? I didn't see this video until after I ordered the Digitizer only... :/ Video title: iPhone 5 Broken Glass replacement start to finish
frankAyye: I cracked my nexus 7 screen how do I know if I need just a new glass screen or the whole kit?? How much would you charge to fix!??
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!
lightzaberrr: So the LCD with digitizer means the tablet has he ability to use a digitizer??which means palm rejection?!?!
wheeler1218: i have two tablets and im interested in you fixing them can you please message me back
Drake McGowan: I just used a toaster oven to melt the glue and got the LCD and digitizer separated
Paata Chikhladze: Just simple, use heat gun
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.
Larry Shier: I think this is the screen you were looking for, more the $50 though.
David Mroz: The bottom, below camera their is a crack in screen that is like rectangle about 2 by 1( inches) and I need the screen replaced, what should I do?
Austin Breinholt: Heat gun, blow dryer loosens the glue. It is still a pain, but it would have come out.
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?
InnerTag: Please see the details section listed above, which explains how to contact me if you're interested in having your unit repaired.
