why don't you put some photo's of the parts you think you've damaged so people might be able to help more? also take a look at one of the guides on the right and see if they can help you work out which parts are damaged. if we can work out what works, what doesn't work, then maybe we can help you decide whether you can repair it...


all of the pieces inside are broken. they don't work anymore. the only thing that is in good condition is the frame.


molly, I think I understand what you are saying, but you got to see our point of view. We can not give you any help unless you give us more information. "All the pieces inside" sounds pretty terminal, but you do stand a chance if you are more descriptive and pictures would be perfect. There is always hope


my computer isn't letting me upload any photos so i will try my best to tell u what is broken. the adhesive strip, the chips,the front panel,and the memory system. that is all that i know. if this dosen't help please let me know.

Molly, sounds like you really got a mess on your hand. If your IC (chips) are cracked and/or off the logic board, there is no way for you to repair it yourself. I would suggest to start shopping may be or any other place. See if you can get a few that have different parts that are broken. you could try and piece it together. Sorry for not having any better news for you. MAy be someone else can give you better advise ;-)
