    Arrow Is there hope?

    The other day i ran over my bb 8100! Fortunately it was in the wonderful leather case that protects it but the one side of the screen has a black "shatter" spot on the screen (the screen itself is fine) and it looks like the old tvs we had when the lines of interference ran through it all the way across the screen.

    Everything else works as good as the day i got it, its just difficult to see most everything and EVERYTHING for sure on the right side of the screen.

    do i have insurance? of course not, at the time they didnt offer it for smartphones and when they finally did, i was lazy/cheap and didnt invest. =(

    so with all that being said, is there any way it can be fixed??

    Check this out. You could just replace the lcd screen altogether. If everything else is fine. Or if the lcd is fine the lens then. Check it out right here

    the "Screen (the tangable touchable part) " is fine no cracks; i guess it would be the lcd tube or whatever it is?

    silvermoon,

    So sorry to hear about your mishap! Is it the physical screen that is damaged or is it the image that is distorted? If it's the screen, then you can get a replacement for that here. Otherwise maybe one of the BlackBerry repair shops can help you:

    www.bbrepairshop.com
    www.cellulardr.com

    Hope this helps!

    Roger
