Is it easy to replace a cracked screen on a acer iconia B1-710?

I've done several Samsungs, a couple of Apples and a Nextbook. I've never done an Acer but I'm guessing it's not too difficult.
Look up YouTube videos on the subject. You can probably find one for the exact device you have.
If the image on your tablet still looks perfect but the glass in front of it is cracked, then you only have to replace the digitizer glass. The screen is behind that. If you have to replace both, try to purchase an assembled package because it will be easier.
Typically, the image screen is fastened to the tablet frame with double-faced tape around the edges. Then another layer of double-faced tape goes around the perimeter of the image screen and the digitizer is stuck onto that. Getting things apart involves using a hair dryer and several little plastic pry tools (some of which look like pry-bars with a handle and some of which look like guitar picks) to separate the glass parts from the heat softened adhesive. I've found that having several single-edge razor blades is also handy as long as you don't slip and push it into your finger.
When you replace the adhesive between the screen glass and the digitizer glass, make sure you don't leave any gaps in the adhesive. Pressing on the front digitizer glass oil-cans it in and out and if you leave any gaps in the adhesive, dust will get sucked in between the sheets of glass.

By the way, I will NEVER do a Nextbook again--at least I wouldn't replace just the glass. They don't use double-faced tape at the factory. The glass was somehow bonded directly to an aluminum frame. Much of the glass I scraped off the frame only came off when pulverized into powder. I would buy the replacement glass already bonded to the aluminum and just snap that on. Probably wouldn't be cheap.

If you have a glass face on your watch then you will probably need to get it replaced. If the face on your watch is plastic then you might be able to get it buffed and possibly smoothed out.

    We have a crack in the face glass. can this be repaired. the watch is less than 12 months old. Crack runs from 11 o'clock down to 3 o'clck. Don't know how it happened as it hasn't been dropped.

    A face glass can be replaced.

    Take it to your nearest what shop and discuss it with them.

    It may be that it will have to be sent to the maker if it is an unusual shape or size. If this is so, the watch shop should be able to sort it out for you.

    Glass that covers the face of the watch is shattered-$ to replace

    I am not sure about prices in US, but over here in England we charge £15 - £25 for mineral glass (depending on size, thickness, e.t.c.) and £50 - £120 for sapphire glass. As for today: £1 = 1.60$. Doesn't matter how you name it - glass or crystal, both are right.

    ebay, they are around $15, just be careful prying it off. You might have to take the top cover off to remove the glass. To put the new glass on close it all up first, then stick the new glass on. good luck
