Scott Amy: STOP AND READ COMMENTS: If you are watching this you most likely broke your
screen and want to fix it yourself. Don't just order the screen. Although
possible to pull the glass off the LCD it is very likely you will break the
LCD in trying. So order the LCD and touch screen together. Preferably with
the front frame. Good Luck.
Life As Me: I'd rather just get my kindle screen fixed my a professional lol because
chances are I'm gonna completely mess my whole kindle up by trying to fix
it myself. Don't try to fix your own kindle just by watching a simple
youtube video if you know nothing about technology :D
lizzy Pandaishness: I just did everything here. AND IF ANY ONE THINKS THEY CAN REPLACE JUST THE
GLASS YOU'RE MISTAKEN!!! its practically impossible especially if the glass
is shattered!!! Believe me i tried! But any who i replaced everything and
put it back exactly the same way and i made sure every thing was plugged in
and now it wont turn on. Any suggestions????
Mike D: lol.. u failed to mention that the lcd and the digitizer are glued together
like most phone lcds ... ive removed the glass from phones before and this
why much harder .. i guess thats why there isnt any videos on people
removing just the glass on this kindle
Rob Forster: Yep...just got jacked by this video...should have read the comments before
ordering the screen. I'm pretty sure it's not worth repairing or spending
more money on...now we'll see if the kindle turns back on after I got it
all put back together (still using the broken screen due to the lcd fusing
issue). I'm pretty technical and handy with this stuff, but this was tough
and what I consider not repairable unless you get the entire new glass
screen assembly with lcd already fused. And, getting the front of the case
apart is difficult in itself...I ended up dinging up my case while trying
to separate it. Lesson learned...
Sean Little: Thank you. Very helpful. Only problem I had was the speaker connections.
I tried sliding the first one out instead of lifting it up. Should have
paid more attention to your vid. Anyways thanks again.
Rob Forster: On top of not being able to replace the screen, now the screen doesn't
recognize my touch, rendering the device useless. Any suggestions on what
The Zombie Gamers season 2: it did not work on my kindle.
TheSteelerTom: Wow! Maybe it would have been easier had the glass only been cracked
slightly on the one I'm repairing for a friend? Unfortunately, the entire
glass was shattered! Talk about a pain in the butt. Not even going to
attempt to separate the glass from the LCD. Having the friend purchase the
entire assembly. I replaced the glass for my daughters Kindle Fire (non-HD)
a year ago and that was faaaaaaaaar easier than this HD version!!!!!!
Jose Galindo: He destroyed his kindle with his stupid idea
zelda hyrule: My seven year old broth got a kindle for Christmas and he shattered it in
February and we used to play minecraft together and not all of his world is
Dale Smart: The tegra Vega was 200 last year now 99 in Curry's n still they can't sell
them cause they break down n freeze.
Dale Smart: They are crap waste of cash best smash em against a wall n stick to laptop
THEGURLUWNNAKNO: Yes , you can buy the screen on amazon
theabsinthehare: To separate the LCD and digitizer, you need specialized equipment. I
recently started repairing these "fused" displays, and I needed to
construct my own machine for doing it. Before I built it, I had attempted
many times to do it manually with heat guns, hair dryers, heat beds, etc.
and ALWAYS cracked the LCD glass underneath. Even if by some miracle you
succeed, you'll usually get "washed out" spots on the LCD from too much
heat. Save yourself the headache and buy the entire assembly.
yonae12: I just found this out the hard way after ordering the frost glass panel +
digitizer. The LCD was glued. I used a hair dryer to unglue it all but when
I reassembled the screen has streaky colors now and is inoperable. Take
note : buy the LCD and glass panel as one.
MyghtyMike442: I recently bought just the digitizer from Repairs Universe for $55.97. You
said it came with instructions. There were no instructions or web link
included. How do I replace just the out most digitizer???
Repairs Universe: PLEASE REMOVE OUR VIDEO FROM YOUR PAGE. This is copy written material and
we will be contacting youtube regarding this.
Fuh-Que: Doesn't look like there's a way to separate them without breaking the LCD.
This video is just about pointless now.
codyhoskins2012: Where can I get the copper tape piece?
Alondrae Campbell: how much does it cost for a new screen?
THEGURLUWNNAKNO: Yes , you can buy the screen on amazon
Matt Damon: I have the same issue, a shattered screen but device is operating. Did you
find somewhere to purchase the glass?
Liliz Black: Devices nowdays are coming with the lcd glued to the digitizer through an
optical glue. Its a big hazzle to remove. For that you need a heat source,
patience and luck unless you have those corporate lcd separators whom do
the stressful work for you. And looking how the parts are this is as
complicated as taking the lcd of an iphone 4 or htc one x or even a note 1.
The glue doesnt seem to be a manageable as the galaxy s3, note 2 or s4. I
work with these problems everyday so im just pointing out.
Cynthia McGee: video was awesome. went to their web site and ordered everything. some
tools were included and for a small cost got the rest of the things need to
repair my kindle screen and then will use the video to do the repairs.
LightnessBrother: Where do you buy just the digitizer?
Brian Elcock: Help.... My screen is shattered. But the device is working fine, can i buy
the glass alone?
Liliz Black: And said by Ifixit review: Bad news everyone! The LCD and front glass panel
are fused together. This means you have to replace the entire assembly as
one unit rather than two separate entities.
