The Archos tablet is a touch screen tablet with a 7- or 9-inch screen designed for Internet use as well as playing media such as music and movies. The device is made up mostly of its touch screen, therefore any damage to this component can ruin the device as a whole. If you have some extra time, you can open up the Archos and replace the screen on your own.
- Skill level:
Things you need
- Phillips screwdriver
- Case opener tool
Turn off your Archos and turn the unit over. Use the tip of your small Phillips screwdriver to pop the rubber pads off of the screws on each corner of the rear of the unit.
Remove the four screws from the corners of the back of the Archos.
Insert the tip of your case opener tool in the seam where the front and back halves of the unit meet. Work your way around the sides, popping the internal locking clips as you go. Continue until the two halves separate.
Unplug the screen ribbon which runs from the back of the screen in the front half of the unit to the motherboard located in the back half of the unit. Set the back half of the unit aside and you will see the back of the LCD screen in the front half of the unit.
Remove the LCD screen from the housing and fit a new one in its place. Reverse the steps for reassembly.
