Do you know of anywhere I can send a nabi jr to have a cracked screen replaced?

Yes thank you for the information but where do we find a screen to replace this?

My navi jr is the nick jr edition and looks a bit different inside. I replaced the screen, as mentioned here but has to remove the outter glass-like screen that has the second smaller ribbonattach from the original screen, and put it on my screen because the new screen did not have that part. All buttons work, the screen looks perfect and vibrant, but the EFEN TOUCH Does not work!!! What did I do wrong? I attached all the ribbons properly!!!
