Wink [Q] Iconia A500 Parts?

So... I don't really want to go into the details of the thing... long story short my college roommate karate kicked my tablet down a flight of stairs (not even a cracked screen!) Acer support is... meager, at best, and the warranty doesn't cover anything hardware related.

The only part of the tablet that is really broken is the top left corner of it; where the power button resides. It's partially cracked open, and the rear-facing camera is really blurry now, condensation/cracked/not really sure. So my question is, does anyone know where I can buy parts for the tablet? As in... possibly the whole shell and the rear camera? I've looked but maybe just not hard enough.

Nice roommate. Shoulda K-Kicked his arse, or steal his girl.

Sent you a pm with a link to the illustrated parts breakdown with part numbers. Also, you might find parts on e-bay.

Awesome thank you, so far no luck but I'm sure eventually someone will be selling the parts. And yeah I shoulda, but **** happens And yes I asked Acer about spare parts... They seemed incredulous to the thought of an end user prying open their tablet. Something to the extent of "voids warranty" and "pay us money to replace the $10 part." Gah. Uh well, now I'm content with building my own green UI now.

Hi! I have had almost exactly the same "accident". My 1 year daughter is responsible for that...

I'd really appreciate that link.

Thank you!!

There's the link, sorry it's taken so long. It only has the part numbers, and as far as finding a vendor for those parts, it's almost impossible. Plenty of front cameras on e-bay, but no rear cameras that I've found. Let me know if you have any luck.
