Can a screen be replaced on a hannspree 10.1 tablet?

I replaced a broken display screen on an iPhone4. I ordered the
screen/digitalizer from Amazon for 16 bucks and it came with a number of tiny tools for the equally tiny screws and fittings.. It took me three hours of tedious labor to get it apart, to connect the screen/digitalizer (some wires with multi-connectors on the ends that are attached to the display) and put it back together. I used 15, numbered cupcake pan, paper liners to keep all the tiny parts in their proper places. I downloaded 25 pages of instructions from the Internet and printed it out as a repair manual. Bottom line, it worked and still works like new.

If you can find a screen/digitalizer for you device by Googling it and if you are handy with small items repair give it a go. But, be sure NOT to order just a front GLASS as you need the combination of display and digitalizer. The front glass thing by itself is a rip-off.

I think the biggest problem you might face is the repair *manual*. Unless some kind soul has spent considerable time compiling one that you can download, I don't think you will have any success disassembling the unit and getting it back together without breaking something else in the process

Almost certainly you have a broken screen. Replacement screens run about $140 and are not very difficult to replace yourself. A website that provides these screens and a "how to" video on their replacement can be found at:
Be sure that you are requesting an exact replacement before ordering. I am not affiliated with this website, and am sure there are other sources.
You may wish to search eBay for a used "for parts only" replacement at a fraction of the cost such as this one which last bid was a little over $10:
Alternatively, you can buy a nice used one for about $100 at:
I personally would go with the last choice and keep yours for spare parts. Good luck!

The screen on my zeepad jellybean 7.0 cracked how do i know if i need a new lcd display. I already purchased the digitized touch screen replacement

tha't an easy task to handle
See the pictures below
if your whole screen shows an image and the cracks are in front of it then its just a cracked digitiser
if you dont see the whole image and tyou see horizontal and vertical line or an image like spilled liquid then your Lcd is also cracked too

92dabd2f-7f4a-4795-976d-d97d7e32fa0e.jpgthis is a broken Lcd (the screen is distorted by the lines or no picture at all)

83952950-d5b2-47e3-b228-81f41d0190af.jpgthis is just a broken digitiser (the screen below the broken glass works fine )

hope that was helpful

My kindle screen is distorted model number D00901

Dear Sarah,

If your Kindle presents some horizontal or vertical lines in part of the screen, or even in full screen, and if the image is kind of "vaporous", not bright, it might have happened that you have a broken display (maybe due to pressure exerted on it, by something inside your bag, backpack or wherever you carry your Kindle). Please check this link to see if your problem is similar to those shown in the images:

If that is the case, you can buy a new display from Ali Express and replace it following the disassembling instructions shown at

If you do not want to do it on your own, take the display and the instructions provided in the link indicated to a service technician that you trust and have it replaced (I had the same problem with my kindle 3 and replaced its display in less than an hour - it is not that difficult...).

Although you posted the problem in the area for the Kindle 1, by the model number it seems that you have a Kindle 3 (3rd generation) or Kindle Keyboard. The display for this model is the one shown in the link below:

Hope it helps!

The icons and keyboard on ipad does not fit screen display on ipad

if this is within an app, it may be normal as iPhone apps can run in compatibility with the iPad, however certain things will be a bit distorted due to the different screen sizes/resolutions

If an external monitor showed graphics, then there is nothing wrong with your Graphics 'chip'.

{'Chip' is a slang term for IC. Integrated Circuit.

The Integrated Circuit for graphics is a GPU. Graphics Processing Unit. Your laptop uses the Nvidia GeForce G0 FX5200 GPU.

Your laptop like many others, does not have a graphics adapter card. It has Integrated Graphics. Another term is 'OnBoard'.
The graphics chip is on the board.
There is no graphics adapter card to remove, and replace}

Some areas you may wish to address:

1.The Native Resolution is 1400 X 1050. What does it state in Display Properties?
(Right-click on any empty area of your desktop screen.
Click on Properties at the bottom of the list.
Click on the Settings tab)

2.There are known issues with the CMI display cable. Observe the display cable. Look at the letter/numbers under the barcode. Does it start with CMI?

3.There have been known issues with the connectors on digitizer cable
(The above is for reference to the digitizer cable identification)

Screen goes blank (white), sometimes screen display will get big

You can update graphics driver, if that does not fix the issue check the display on external monitor. If the external monitor works fine you can isolate checking the display in BIOS Setup scree (Restart your computer and keep tapping F10 to getinto BIOS). If the same issue in BIOS, you may have to change display of the unit.
