Is it possible to replace the touch screen only?

I have a cracked touch screen on my Asus Zenpad 3S 10 Z500M but the display is not affected. I only see the whole assembly for sale online so I'm presuming this tablet is one that requires the whole assembly (expensive) to be replaced. Is it possible to replace the screen alone?

Answer this question I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

Hi

Asus parts (click on LCD panel link in middle of page in link) doesn't list the digitizer as a separate part so I think that your assumption that it requires a whole assembly is probably correct.

Be warned that the glass (digitizer) can be purchased separately on e-bay. However, it seems impossible to remove the glass from the LCD panel. This is likely why Asus does not list the part(s) separately, and buying the glass separately may be worthless.

yes it is possible to do the glass only but it is not a simple job, i highly advise purchasing complete as glass only requires specific tools that you may or may not have access to and the chance of breaking/burning the lcd is very high

A lot of repair options are POSSIBLE, but some turn out to be not PRACTICAL.

Most experienced electronics repair shops would still purchase the more expensive full assembly: cover glass, digitizer and lcd in one. Separating the old laminated parts is too time consuming and risky for a single job. Glass-only repairs only make sense when refurbishing thousands of screens at a time, so that you can afford to by the expensive tools required to do it right.

The factory vendor posting on eBay or AliExpress does not care if their glass-only part is a practical option for their customer. They just want to sell as much glass as possible.

Think of the windshield on a car. This is made of multiple layers of glass and plastic all glued together. If you cracked the top layer of the windshield only, you would never consider stripping it down to preserve the bottom layer by replacing only the top. Anyone would choose to simply buy a factory made assembly of the whole windshield.

Yes it is possible. I removed mine originally before I realized I needed both. Still got that glass. But its for a ZenFone 5.

I also need to replace my screen/digitizer for my ZenPad s3 (10) z500m. But the cost is ridiculously high! Unless someone knows a cheaper source. Thanks

Did you manage to separate the glass from the LCD? I was stupid buying the digitizer only and I cannot find someone who is capable of doing it :(
