Introduction

This guide will explain how to replace the screen on your Trio Stealth-G4X tablet. Before attempting this guide, make sure your screen needs replaced. To do this, check for any cracks in the screen. If there are cracks in the screen, they can only be fixed by screen replacement. If there are no cracks in the screen but the tablet is unresponsive, then your digitizer might be damaged. You may be able to replace the digitizer without replacing the LCD screen depending on the amount of damage to the screen. If the image is distorted or unresponsive, the LCD display screen may be damaged and full replacement is needed. For more information about common issues you may have with your tablet before attempting this replacement, visit the Trio Stealth-G4X Troubleshooting Page.
