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
Dennis Leslie: I just did it in about 15 minutes total. Invest in a heat gun.
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!
Janno Sannik: Nexus 7 doesn't have glue. It has double sided tape to hold the screen
together. Since ebay don't sell you the double sided tape then someone must
of changed the dogitizer before. Since double sided tape is somewhat
useless for second run, they seem to have decided to glue it together (that
was my backup plan also). I used the digitizer+lcd kit to replace nexus 7
paleofemme: Take your Nexus, throw it out the window - buy a Kindle Fire.
Erica Milch: all messed up.. throw it away
Johnathan Chamberlain: Just some words of advice: Use a heatgun to remove the LCD panel +
digitizer assembly from the bezel. Then take a pair of pliers grab ahold of
a corner of the glass (make sure its ONLY glass that you have) and snap the
corner off to expose a section of the LCD panel. Now take a blade with a
point and a sharp edge (eg folding knife) and slide it around the edge of
the display being sure to keep the sharp edge pressed against the glass
(not the display). LCD/Digitizer separates cleanly doing this.
Aravind R.K: You replaced the complete LCD panel or just the digitizer?
Jason Bowers: +Matt Baucom +Liz E
Abbas Mohsin: i must do this ,if i want to return back nexus alive
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
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!
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
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
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
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
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
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.
sakionaraito: hello dude, i have a nexus 7 and the other day it appeard with the glass
broken, when i say it i thought it would still work correctly, because its
very superficial, but its weird, because one half of the screen has lost
the capacity of receiving touch... but the lcd is woking fully good... what
do you recommend me?
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?
alnsami: You don't need any heating tool to dismount the casing, I just did it
manually and it ended nicely. as you can see here: informationweek
Tomas Harencak: digitizer is glued or pressed the LCD display? I do not know whether to buy
or digitizer assembly LCD with Digitizer. I am very skilled type. but if
pressed lcd so it just more damage and is not coming digitizer. thx
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.
InnerTag: the 3M 2mm double sided tape did not work, it wasn't strong enough. I tried
super glue, but it wouldn't adhere to the glass. so i used a two part epoxy
last night and i've reassembled this morning. So far, so good. We'll see
how it lasts.
Jeff kaththem: Hey dude could u check this video and see my comment because I need u to
fix to help me if u have skype that would be awesome so maybe we can talk
ArticBeatle: I am dealing with the same exact thing right now. It freaking sucks! What
are you using to attach the bezel and bracket to the LCD/ Digitizer?
