Pull the display ribbon through the frame Make sure there is not a single glass-shard left on the frame. Any little splinter will cause significant damage to the new screen you're about to place

Hallo Paintskill,

Ich habe eine wesentliche Frage. Was muss ich noch beachten, wenn mein Display und das Touchpannel ganz ist und ich aber nur mein Deckglas austauschen möchte. Wie sind diese aneinander geklebt? Wie schwierig ist das?

Und ja, welche doppelseitigen Klebestreifen hast du benutzt?

lg und Danke,

Hallo,

Nun ich habs auch selber versucht und wollte sagen.

Mein Deckglas war nur gesprungen, nicht das Display. Also wollte ich daran sparen und nur das Deckglas kaufen. Keine gute Idee... Das ist brutal mit einander verklebt und selbst wenn man es abbekäme müssten wir das empfindliche Display noch vom Kleber reinigen. Das hab ich mit nicht geschafft - und ich war im Labor der Hochschule. Kauft gleich das Display ^^

lg

PS: die 85°C zum Kleber aufheizen sind ganz vernünftig.

Hi! Which legitimate website can I order for the display pannel of P7-L10? I hope there is.. Or can I order it from you? Tried checking in to two service centers located in Ayala Mall, Cebu City, Philippines but they don't have a stock on hand. Too bad!

How did you refit back screen again? Using double sided tape or reheating old adhesive and sticking back?
