Where depends on where you live, do a search on google maps for repair places. I got mine done at a place called Device Pit Stop but I think it is local (Minneapolis area). I also went to the national chain Batteries Plus. Batteries Plus looked at their info and told me they couldn't get the part and suggested Device Pit Stop (I have used them before). I also have local computer shop (run by a great computer tech) that I have used before.

I am lucky for things like this that I am in a large city with a lot of tech. If you are in a small town, ask around. I have had much better luck with local shops rather than large corporate shops like Geek Squad (they had a huge reputation before Best Buy bought them.

Basically,you need to make sure that the digitizer is clean before putting it on,also make sure that the lcd or led screen is clean.You need to get on ebay or anywhere honestly(as long as it is legit) and search the exact screen you need.Sometimes ebay sellers' screens are not very-well built.Luck.You can search "how to install screen on....."Sometimes they make it look easy,but it isn't really.Luck... :) Seriously ask anything else.I will try to help :)

I have recently had this problem, and i found a solution. You will want to buy a OTG cable, ($3 at walmart). Next, connect the cable to your Nexus. The last step is to also connect a mouse to the OTG cable (wireless works best). A courser should come up on the screen. The mouse enables you to access your Nexus as you would normally would.

The digitizer (top layer of glass) and the display are a single item on the 2nd gen Nexus 7. If the digitizer layer is cracked, the touch screen will be partially or completely unresponsive.

Just had it replaced locally for $125.
