Short answer is yes, you can.

Longer answer is that you really want to get the LCD Digitizer and Glass Assembly. It is still going to require some bowler tech adhesive (or any REAL 3M 300LSE, i.e. not from eBay). If you are lucky the assembly will come with some adhesive from factory.

Just make sure you pull the back cover off, pop the battery and remove the midframe. This will require removing all the screws and a cables. Note, CON0101 is easier to remove from the board on the midframe (the one that J6803 is also connected to) than the mainboard. Be very careful when removing it. Also keep in mind to completely remove the LCD cable (J4501), as it is unlikely that you will get a replacement with your screen assembly.

After that it is just a matter of using some heat and tools to work the glass from the frame. With a little effort it should come out nicely.

And as always ensure that you remove all traces of adhesive from the frame before seating the new screen, isopropyl and a flat razor blade work well and you don't run the risk of damaging plastics with other solvents like acetone. If you were fortunate enough to get some factory adhesive on the assembly, give it a few seconds under a heat gun before laying it down.

I hope this helps!

Hi, do you know where I can find a Manual, or video on how to take the LCD out so I can install a new one? I have a Dell Venue 11 Pro 7130. Thanks.

Sorry mate I don't have either. It is probably one of the more complex tablets I have worked on, if you aren't very experienced in gadget repair, and feel you would need to follow a guide fully, I would honestly suggest taking it to your local gadget repair crowd.

Not trying to be condescending or disrespectful. It is just that I don't have the resources to film a repair, nor the time to photograph and make a guide. Also, I made the reply post as I was looking for an answer to a question I had about the Dell myself, found nothing, fixed it anyways, and then decided to help out Yun. There just really isn't much out there...

That said any experienced gadget repair tech should be able to figure this one out pretty easy, they just need to be mindful of the laptop style cables and remember heat and isopropyl are your friends.
