Dan, where did you buy the digitizer from? I'm looking for a trusted OEM distributor.


Bought the digitizer from China on Ebay (cui1873), followed this video, and BAM! I have a fully functioning tablet again. This video is awesome and the parts came in as described.

To change the digitizer, it is essential to remove all or just the cover and the battery!

Never put a case on my 10.1 and I use it at work alot. Screen is mint because ive always had a protector on it but the back panel and grey trim is all gashed and scratched up. Anyone know where I can buy new back cover and trim for the 10.1?

This is excellent - thank you! My Samsung Galaxy 10.1 has just given up the ghost but thanks to you I shall have a look inside...

By the way - when I click on your next button it takes me back to the start of the video.

Thanks for the info, I've now removed it....


Excellent video! Thanks so much for putting this together. My two+ year old Note10.1 fell from my desk at work onto the carpeted floor. The display screen was blurry and pixelated afterwards; I suspected an LCD cable was jostled loose and needed to get into the back of my tablet. 10 minutes into this video, I was able to access and locate the problem and repair it. Thanks, again.
