Replace LCD without removing digitizer?

I have a Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 7.0. The LCD is shot but the digitizer/screen is fine. Can I replace the LCD from the back with out having to un-glue and re-glue the digitizer? Trying to avoid that hassle if at all possible. Can someone post instructions for replacing the LCD only?

Unfortunately no. The mid frame holds the LCD in a bit of a pocket and you can't pull it out from the back.

The good news is with enough heat , a steady hand and good spudger pulling the front off really isn't that bad as far as glass removal goes. Way better then an iPad for sure.

Thanks for the answer. How much do I need to disassemble from the midframe? Once I get the front off, do I only need to disconnect and remove the LCD? or is there a bunch of other stuff I need to remove?


Yep, unplug and remove. Pretty strait forward. With it already being broken there isn't much to worry about. The other good news is that if you do manage to break the glass/digi it is a fairly inexpensive part.
