Replacing a broken screen for a tablet

It was dropped to the floor as my daughter said, less than 3 months new... The SD card slot was damaged and the card inside was bend and broken too.

taobao is a great source, and to my surprise, such a big screen is actually quite cheap, cheaper than most mobile phone screen!

Before the replacement.

The seller was nice enough to request for an image of the back of the tablet, so as to ensure everything works well.

Make sure that it could be turned on...

The disassembly is easy, much easier than replacing the screen of a mobile phone.

Pulled out the components... the connectors were quite big and so it's not difficult at all.
