How to replace touch screen on tablet PC Ainol Novo 7 Elf
"What to do now?" - that's what I was thought, when I saw a crack on my tablet's display. The answer was - to disassemble and replace the touch screen!
Step 1. Order necessary components to replace the touch screen
Go to ebay and search for your tablet's touch screen.
Touch screen came in a week. Price - $36.
STEP 2. Tablet disassembly
The images show all the steps and stages of disassembling the device. The most important thing - everything must be done carefully, because the elements are made of plastic and it's easy to damage them.
Next, disconnect the cables of the sensor and screen.
Disconnect latches holding the cables.
The screen is off. Hurray!
STEP 3. Disassembling the "sandwiched" tablet screen
Tablet's screen consists of a touch screen and matrix. First, take off the matrix. Everything must be done by soft plastic guitar pick to prevent damaging the cover frame.
So here is the purchased touch screen:
Remove the broken touch screen of the plastic frame (it's glued) and get rid of the residual glue.
Stick strips of double-sided adhesive tape onto the frame and glue the new touch screen.
STEP 4. Reassembling the tablet
Assemble in the reverse order to disassembling. This must be done carefully or you'll have to buy again the touch screen.
Everything you are doing - is at your own risk and THERE ARE NO GUARANTEES that the device will work - if you know what I mean.
