Assuming the screen is physically cracked, you need to obtain a new screen, remove the screen bezel by popping off the rubber caps and undoing the screws under them. The screen is fixed into position by two rails with small screws holding it into place. Remove these and the screen will be freed.
Disconnect the VGA cable and the smaller two wire plug that connects the inverter to the screen, replace the new screen and re assemble

How to replace I pad 2 broken screen


Is the screen broken or is it just the digitiser? There are many excellent videos available which take you through the process of replacing all parts of your iPad.

However, it is not something that can be fixed easily and you need to exercise great patience in dismantling your broken iPad and replacing the damaged parts.

Make sure you have plenty of space in which to work and place all the parts of the iPad around your working area so they are easy to reach.

Good Luck.

Broken Screen on my Kindle fire hd


Working inside a tablet is NOT for the feinthearted or non-technician. Best bet is the tech support / RMA route. Most of the cost of the tablet is the screen, so this means $$$. Since Amazon actually sells their tablets below cost (they make all their money on customer downloads), you would be likely paying more than the trouble is worth for the parts and STILL not have a working tablet.

Gateway tablet screen


The screen has probably cracked. Screens are replaceable, but I wouldn't suggest trying to do it yourself. Get it done in a shop. Gateway will tell you how much it will cost.

Broken screen


There is no replacement screen commercially available.

Recomend returning the unit to Best Buy for a different unit if you purchased the protection plan.

IPad replace broken screen


the only thing that i can be sure that would help is that you need to call the manufacturer and get a screen replacement because since the ipad is fairly new it wont have many guides or anything that can really fix a broken screen.

i hope that this can be useful

My Gateway laptop model TB120 hinge is broken. any one knows where i can buy a hinge for this model.


This may help and may not. It seems there are lots of people having the same problem you are. The best way to get a replacement seems to buy a cheap junked out Gateway and use the hinge from it. However I would be very careful doing this because the one you buy may not have a good hinge. As many people there are with these issues I would contact Gateway to see if they had a replacement part and would ask to file an official complaint. In addition here is a number to a laptop repair company, they will help you find the most cost effective way to fix your laptop. They are good I have used them for parts before. 1 (800) 999-4409

Broken screen hinge/collar


You can purchase replacement hinges and hinge covers here: http://www.mundocorp.com/m275.html They may be a bit of work to replace. But short of replacing the hinge assembly, it doesn't sound like that is going to move.
