Nothing spectacular happened I just turned on my tablet today and voila! My display is crazed on part of the screen! I read these steps a couple times and I just don't understand how if this process is intended to replace the display screen a display screen isn't listed as a necessary part purchase. I have faith in reader generated sites so please help!

Denise a new display screen would need to be purchased. Unless you absolutely have to have this particular tablet fixed I suggest buying a new one.
