    Broken screen on my BB 8100

    Advertisement



    I dropped my BB8100 on the garage floor while in it's leather sleeve case. It has survived several such mishaps, but this time it took a real hit! The glass (I think it's glass...) protective screen cover cracked, and is starting to spider-web pretty badly. The GOOD news is the color LCD display screen underneath seems to be fine.

    Can anyone suggest a repair depot, or is there any chance that top screen is user replaceable? Appreciate any help, and thanks!

    Go to eBay & search for blackberry 8100 Housings - probably cost you $9-$15.

    If you are going to take the time to respond... take the time to actually understand that to which you are responding.

    They call it a "Lens" and it's only $6.99US. Cheap enough!

    And this is field-replaceable by an all thumbs guy, right?

    TIA!

    That would be the one- the old one will peel right off and the new one will stick right on. I don't have any experience with cnn.cn, but whenever I get something from Hong Kong it takes 3 weeks minimum to get to my mailbox. I see those alot on eBay with domestic sellers that will probably get it to you sooner if you're like me and can't stand to see your Pearl looking like that- right around the same price.

    Most excellent - thank you! I will order one... from your description, it sounds like you can remove/replace the lens without disassembling the device? Is that correct? Thanks again... Mike
