There is an ant under my screen. I am not sure how it got there and I wasn't too happy when it stopped moving... I think it's dead.

Any advice on getting it out...
I already tried a vacuum cleaner, that didn't work.

I would open the device but I am not sure if there is adhesive between the lcd and glass panel.

Lmfao... I'm sorry.. This just made me laugh... I'm sorry about the ant though.. I believe you will have to take it apart if you can't shake it out. You're going to have to google a repair video for the 10.1. Lmk how it works out for you.

Nothing productive to add just.... PMSL! ;)
How the f&$k did it get in there? The only real place I can see on mine is the headphone socket.

LOL @ Ant buster...

Yeah I am guessing I will have to open it. The thing is I don't know if there is adhesive between the lcd and the glass. None of the disassemble videos I've seen removed the lcd panel. I guess I will have to do it on my own...
wish me good luck.
STUPID ANT.
I am guessing not even the ant buster could save me now.
