Where to find replacement parts for Nexus 7

History

I am looking at trying to find individual parts for the Nexus 7 (back cover, batteries, etc).

My main concern right now is finding a couple back cover replacements.

Is there a specific e-tailer, or area that I can purchase replacment parts for? Either directly through a dealer, warehouse, etc.

Since it is manufactured by ASUS, and that is where you would register it, check their web site. Of course they are not going to cover damage under warranty. I know that some of the extended warranty companies cover damage or loss, but it's a little late for that. Here is what I got off of the Asus site. I don't know if this is the number you called, but if not it's worth a shot. They must sell parts, either that or out of warranty repair.

?RETAIL Product Support ONLY: 1-877-339-2787

(Best Buy USA, OfficeMax, Staples USA, Costco Wholesale, Microsoft, Office Depot, Walmart, Future Shop )

All-in-One, Desktop, Netbook,

Notebook or Tablet

From the tear down, it sounds like it's gonna be expensive. I'm surprised that the Gorilla Glass (a Corning product) didn't hold up.

its not gorilla glass, its corning scratch-resistant glass. kept cost down, but also why so many cracked screens from people tossing this in their backpacks and pockets without proper cases.

@grifry: I don't dispute your answer but how did you determine what type of glass is used? Just curious, and good to know.

All I have to say is that for a "screen" you would need the whole digitizer, which is around $115. It would be better to buy a new 8gb Nexus 7 and take the digitizer from it...hope this helps.

I bought one of these to repair a 32Gb Nexus 7:

Doesn't come with the bezel fitted so you have to use very thin/strong double sided tape to stick it to the old bezel.

The cheapest reliable place I've found is here:

Not cheap but I haven't found anywhere that is better. They're new parts, I bought a couple from them and they warned me about an unavoidable delay in shipping, asked me if I'd prefer to wait or get a refund, and when they were arrived they were well packed and worked nicely.

I have Back covers, and other replacement parts for the Nexus 7 on my Ebay page. I think I only have Two backs right now, but I always have one or two on hand. Sell one, and its replaced by one. I don't know if you can search Ebay by seller name, but my handle is snakebitemagee, or just search ebay for Nexus 7 case back

We have a few used nexus 7 parts in the shop if you are still looking.

The hard to find part is the micro usb charging port on the nexus 7. It is notorious for becoming useless b/c cords fit loosely in the port right out of the box. Micro usb cords get wiggled and jiggled because of the size of the opening and then the port will no longer charge b/c solder breaks from the board, or the tongue inside the port partially breaks apart.

You can buy the replacement micro usb / headphone jack assembly for about $40-60 and do the repair yourself (hopefully) ...or you can send it to us and we'll replace just the jack and ship it back to you all for $54.95

Screens; including LCD and Digitizer, are replaced and shipped back for $99.95

More info and our repair form is on this page:
