Hi guys,

I'm very new to the forums. I have been using various tablets for the last few years now, but my favourite is the Samsung Galaxy Notes, I have had the 8.0(G5110), the n8013, and now the P600. I love love love the way the S-Pen works.

Anyway, I bought the P600 on ebay, with broken glass. I had bought the n8013 on ebay with broken glass as well, and it was easy to replace. No big deal. I assumed the P600 would be the same, but boy, was I WRONG!! I couldn't find any breakdown or repair videos for the P600 on youtube, for the screen. I thought I was too cool and could figure it out, so I went about taking it apart. I think that some of the seasoned people here will know what happened next right? I broke the LCD screen inside, because the damn thing was fused/glued to the digitizer. FML!!! Anyway, I learned from that mistake. Now, I'm having trouble finding a replacement LCD assembly for it, for a sensible price. Does anyone know where the absolute cheapest replacement LCD for the P600 can be found? Is it ebay?

Another important thing, can the LCD from the n8013 be used in the P600? I tried the charging connector out of the P600 in the N8013, because there is a problem with the charging port of the n8013, and when I put the end of the charging connector from the p600 in the n8013, without ever being plugged into actual electricity, the cable got hot, the actual ribbon charging one, not the outlet charger. I'm assuming it might be a different voltage, different conduction or something. I'm making stuff up to sound smart now. LOL.

Anyway, any advice at all on this, or where I should look, please let me know. I have searched a few times for tips and ideas on how to fix things, and this forum has shown up more than a dozen times during my various searches, so I figured I would finally join and post.

Also, even though I did some stupid things with these tablets, I am a fairly intelligent person. I just learn more from mistakes than I do from never making a mistake...lol

find it on Ebay. The one made from China is about 175$ but I don't trust this. I found this one for you, 207$ seems to be the cheapest.

Hi, thank you for taking the time to look for me. I should have mentioned that I'm in Canada, that seller doesn't ship to Canada. Why didn't you trust the other seller, who was cheaper?

because the screen made in China (clone) and I don't know if it has the same specs as the original screen. You would want to buy a used screen instead.
How about this one? http://www.ebay.com/itm/LCD-Touch-Di...item19f5cb6e4d

I don't mind buying used, if it works. I'm hoping to keep it around $175 or so, as that's about as far as I can stretch my budget at the moment. If I can't get one for that, I will have to wait for a little while. I was hoping I didn't have to. Do you know if the lcd from the n8013 would be compatible? Thanks again for your help!

No it's not compatible, don't try it, it may smoke your main board.
