Ouch, that'll cost you a small fortune... Didn't you just get it last week or some? (if I remeber the Comics topic correctly)

Try an official Samsung Service Center.

Question Spare parts
Hi Yīall.

Actually i donīt think itīs totally impossible to make the repair yourself.
What i havenīt been able to locate is a source of spare parts.
Ebay seems to be void of parts for this tablet.
I found a place that advertised for a front glass for the SM-P900. My -905 search though has been a total failure.
Canīt remember where i saw the -900 front glass.

Even a battery seems to be a very tall order.
I love my new tablet, but i dread the day when iīll need spare parts. Saw somewhere that tablets have a slower turnaround i.e. people keep them for longer.
Runs nicely i thread with my own intentions to keep my -905 for at least 3 years - longer if possible. Then battery replacement could very well be an issue.

Regards
Elo

Repairing a 12 inch screen is going to be the pain of the world. Samsung glues the digititzer plus glas onto the lcd. Gonna be fun scraping the glas of the lcd without damaging it. Lcd plus digititzer might be a better idea but pretty expensive....

This. I've been to the repair centers, I've seen how they sit in white suits with face masks scraping off the glue for hours before they can replace the screen. Masks, because the glue is semi-toxic. (this kind of heavy-duty glue usually is.)
