Does any know where to purchase screens for the 101? I have checked ebay and there is one but that doesn't come with a Digitizer.
or can some suggest where could replace it for me?
Yeah, apparently Archos don't cover hardware issues unless it's an issue with defective hardware.
I broke my screen too. I had a good look around for new screen and digitizer but couldn't find any. In fact, I reckon the one that you found on ebay was made for the (very similar) 10.2" laptop
. I haven't checked in a while so I could be wrong, but that was all that I could find.
I assume when you say Archos won't repair it, you mean they won't repair it for free?
I ended up having to send mine back to Archos for repair and it cost €123 altogether. It also took close to 2 months to get back to me. Just got it back there on the 30th of December.
