Most Companies have service technicians. If you send your device to them, they will repair or replace your screen, for a fee. If you are handy with electronics, you might be able to open up your device and remove your screen. Then, find a replacement screen on eBay or other websites. Replacing your screen is a simple enough process, but there are a few things to be aware of:

  1. Always make sure you are well grounded. Use a wrist strap for this.
  2. To access the internal components of your device, you will have to remove the back. Check for any screws holding it on. On the iPod, there are no screws. If this is the case, use a sharp scredriver to pry off the back of the case. On the Toshiba Gigabeat, there are five screws holding the case on. Remove them all and slide the back of the case off.
  3. Now it gets tricky. On most mp3 players, the screen in behind the Hard drive, main circuit board, and battery. Removing all of these is usually pretty simple, just remove any screws you may see, and disconnect the fragile ribbon cables VERY carefully. These can be a pain, and destroying them is not very difficult.
  4. Remove your screen by removing the ribbon cables. Also, be aware that throughout the dismantling process, there are usually clips and friction fits holding parts together, so you may need to remove those. Be careful, make no sudden movements or jerks, and if it does not come out with gentle handling, you are doing something wrong.
  5. Fit the new screen in and firmly connect the ribbon cables. There are usually tabs on the ribbon cable connectors that you need to lift to allow the ribbon cable to fit in the slot and make a secure contact.
  6. Put the hard drive, battery, and motherboard back, and connect all the ribbon cables firmly.
  7. Put the case back together, but before putting screws back in, power the device on. Listen carefully. If something is going wrong, you might be able to diagnose the problem by listening. If nothing happens, it may be the hard drive or battery. If you can see the screen lighting up, but cannot hear the hard drive spinning, then it could also be the hard drive. Or, if the hard drive is spinning but no screen action is present, then it may be the screen.
  8. Most of the time, unplugging and firmly reattaching the ribbon cables will fix this problem.
  9. If everything works, congratulations! You just fixed you device and saved a lot of money.
Note: This is risky business. While there is indeed a first time for everything, sometimes starting small is the way to go. The parts of an mp3 player are very vulnerable when not in their cases. Think long and hard before attempting this.

Cell Phone Replacement Parts for Nokia Lumia 710 eBay

If you are going to do this yourself, screens can be purchased online, but it may require some skill.

Often there are while you wait screen repair services in large shopping malls in the United States. Unsure where you can find a service to repair the screen.

Crack inside screen, doesn't let me control it.

Touch screen have an X/Y axis running from top to bottom and side to side. If the crack appears, one or more conncetions will be shorted out and the screen fails. Looks like you need a new unit.

My touch is'nt work and hardreset is'nt working!


Does your unit still works even without using touchscreen?

Since you already do hard reset and still it does'nt work. then chances are you have a defective touch screen, probably it is cause by an impact of any kind and produce a crack inside or if your luck, the touch screen flex get loose inside.

here is what you can do if your phone does'nt have any warranty anymore cause opening your phone can forfeit your warrany.

Open tour phone slowly and secure the screw to a safe place and also remember where and how to place the parts you remove. Be extra carefull for the LCD. the touch screen is just above the LCD. Some manufacturers include the touch screen to the LCD and some are separate. You can check visually is there is cracks on the touch screen and also check its flex connector if it is ok.

You can purchase touchscreen, LCD or Both at ebay. be sure that the right model is what you order.

Hope I helped you in some other way.

The touch screen on our Garwin Nuvi 360 do not function.

Unfortunatly there is a fine wire Grid below the surface of the glass, the grid detects where you are touching on the screen, with the glass being broken, the grid is broken, which will cause dead spots or regions on the touch screen. You will have to replace the Touch screen or the unit which ever is most cost effective.

Hope this is of some help.

SONY NV-U94T touch screen cracked

I have the same problem. I called Sony Support and a new Touchscreen digitizer (the touch-sensitive glass pane that sits on top of the LCD screen) costs about $76. That's just for the part. Haven't been able to find another solution. I took the liberty of taking my unit apart and taking out the shattered screen, now all I need is a replacement, but Sony's is too expensive for me. Maybe it will work for you though

Avic-z1 touch screen does not work

Is the screen cracked? Just a small crack can cause problems. When the screen is cracked and you touch it, it touch's some where else on the screen. I cracked mine, and I just changed it. It's pretty easy, all you need is a small phillips screw driver. Good luck!
