Bought one for my son at XMAS and he’s broken the screen – still works but with a some distortion and black (dead? pixels) – is it worth repairing? I could get a new screen for Â£96.04 + Â£7.50p&p but I do not know how to replace it with the old one – is it an easy DIY job? and do I need a manual?
I’ve not removed the screen, however the links in this post may help you as it shows how to remove the screen section.
You would probably need to do this to remove the leads which are attached to the screen.
As for whether it’s worth repairing, I guess that’s up to you. It might be worth contacting Samsung to see if they will do the repair for you and how much they would charge.
Yikes Â£100 for the new screen. It does make you think when a new one is Â£300. I guess it will come down to just how bad the damage is! Any pics?
I’d probably stuggle on if it was just a few dead pixels with a view to buying a replacement when something more exciting comes along.
Welcome to the site RANDOLPH1059. I’m not promoting dishonesty but is there any way this could be a warranty repair?
one thing to consider also is is it possible that your son may break the screen a further time? you dont say how old he is, but maybe too young for an nc10?
Where did you find the replacement screen?
My biggest worrie is that all replacments are classified in 10.4″ while it should be 10.2, is it normal?
GÃ¬Furthermore, sice the price you gave is in pounds i guess you found a retail in the uk, i have found only american retailers, could you perhaps tell me where you found it?
If there are any germans, they’re a pretty forward country unlike us italians so, they might have spare part sellers also, if anybody knows i’d be very very glad.
