I want to replace the LCD for this computer with one I have purchased form a spare parts retailer, has anyone ever done this before? I'm just worried about how to remove the existing lcd, as I do not see how it can be done.
I need to do this on mine as well. Ive already taken it apart, just have to find a new lcd. the front cover on the screen is held on by 6 screws, 4 on the bottom under the silver stickers and 2 on the top under the black triangular stickers in the corners. Then the screen itself is held on by 8 little screws on either side (4 on either side). Where did you buy the replacement lcd for it, and do you know the part number?

I believe the person asked where to get replacement parts for tablet PCs, not for commentary on the price of parts or their skill on electronics repair.
Best place I have found to get replacement parts for microelectronic devices is ebay and amazon, although with an off brand like AGPtek you may be forced to purchase the parts through the manufacturer (most likely for a SIGNIFICANT markup.) I know with my AGPtek TP15 tablet, replacing the glass digitizer consists of disconnecting a couple ribbon cables and attaching the replacement. Getting the parts is the hard part.
Of course you could try returning it to the shop but I don't think any warranty would cover this. If only the screen got damaged you could try replacing it. It is fairly simple, take apart, unplug old one, plug in the new one and put back together, but it might be difficult to get a spare lcd. You could buy a used, faulty one with a working screen and use the lcd from that. Good luck!
You can do it yourself, but BE CAREFUL: buy just the same touchscreen, the one with the similar attributes (check your Technical Specifications of your device!). So... let's start: 1. open the cover (use a screwdriver) 2. get the LCD out 3. put the replacing screen in place 4, it's done (after you will screw back all screws!) A SIMILAR SCREEN for your Archos 101 is called Pixel Qi.
And here you have all technical details concerning your screen. REMEMBER: the replacement should meet THE SAME SPECIFICATIONS!!! http://www.touchinternational.com/downloads/supplierguides/101mulTI-touch-lcdspec.pdf
A pinkish tint is indication that the backlight tube inside the screen is not fully lit. But then it goes black - meaning the tube shut down? That part don't make much sense - it's certainly possible, though.
Replacing tubes is pretty surgical so I wouldn't recommend it. Replacing the screen should be pretty darn easy. A good, used screen should be pretty cheap on eBay, so that's where I'd start.
