How can I replace my digitizer assembly?
Ok, so a couple days ago, guy rams into me, and in doing so, he makes me drop my brand new Samsung Galaxy Tab S2. In the very strained exchange of words that proceed, he refuses to pay any money for my tablet. Anyways, (I apologize, I am still slightly salty about it) I go to the only licensed repair shop for Samsung devices in my town to get a repair quote. To my dismay it is more than the tablet is worth ($650). So to cut to the chase, I am not getting it done there. My only other option is to do it myself. I have a source for the parts, all I need is a little guidance since I can't get the thing apart. Any help would be greatly appreciated, as I would prefer to get it back running ASAP. If anyone has attempted anything with the galaxy tab S2, I would love some insight, as there is little to nothing on the subject anywhere.
Is this a good question?
I hope you didn't buy the screen. It is really not worth repairing. The screen costs like $370+.
I found a digitizer assembly for $250. I know it's a bit steep, however it was a gift with some sentimental value attached (as crazy as that sounds) but I'd like to try and actually keep it if I could, even if I have to funnel some extra money into it. However, I definitely do understand where you're coming from (I nearly had a stroke when I first started to look :P)

I would report that shop to the BBB! LOL. IF $100 an hr, the work shouldn't take an hr. (For a repair shop) you can take a laptop appart, reflow a CPU, GPU chip and reassemble in an hr! In malls, they have screen replacement Cios (spelling) for iPhone or iPod for 60+. Not sure on a tablet.
Kiosk you mean?
