Quite often the screen is the first thing to break on a tablet and the LCD panel is actually what senses the touch of the user as well as displays the images of the screen.

In order to perform this replacement you will need to use heat tools such as either the iOpener or a high heat gun so be aware of how to properly use these tools as well as proper safety gear to prevent injury or damage to the device.

  1. Ensure that your device is turned off. Remove any micro-SD card that may be installed in the Fire. Failure to do so could damage the micro-SD card itself or the micro-SD card reader on the Fire.

    • Remove any micro-SD card that may be installed in the Fire. Failure to do so could damage the micro-SD card itself or the micro-SD card reader on the Fire.

    • While holding the device firmly, wedge the iFixit Opening Tool into the crease along the outer edge of the device (as shown in the image).

    • Slowly, grind the iFixit Opening Tool into the crease along the outer edges of the device until the entire back cover loosens.

    • Then, remove the back cover from the device.

  2. Pry the speaker from the case using the iFixit Opening Tool. Lift the speaker up from the device to remove the speaker wires from their groove in the case.
    • Pry the speaker from the case using the iFixit Opening Tool.

    • Lift the speaker up from the device to remove the speaker wires from their groove in the case.

    • Be careful not to pull the speaker wires from the motherboard.

  3. Desolder the speaker wires from the motherboard. iFixit has a helpful guide explaining how to solder and desolder here: How To Solder and Desolder Connections iFixit has a helpful guide explaining how to solder and desolder here: How To Solder and Desolder Connections

    This step is completely unnecessary. The cords don't get in the way of the rest of the procedure. Feel free to disregard this step.

  4. The battery connector is located in the upper left corner of the Amazon Fire battery pack. To disconnect the battery connector, use  angled ESD precision tweezers to lift the cables up and out of their socket. Make sure you pull the battery  connector cables themselves out and not the actual socket.  Doing this step incorrectly could result in  breaking the connector entirely.

    • The LCD Digitizer on the Amazon Fire tablet has a locking cable connector that holds it in place on the motherboard.

    • To remove the cable, use the iFixit Opening Tool to unlock the LCD Digitizer cable connector.

    • Once the wire connector is removed, use the iFixit Opening Tool to pry the entire LCD Digitizer away from the motherboard.

    • Remove any tape that may be covering the connector.

    • The volume and power buttons must both be repositioned in order to remove the motherboard.

    • To reposition the power and volume buttons, use the iFixit Opening Tool to pull the plastic casing upwards. Then, remove the casing completely.

    • Make sure that both the volume and the power buttons are free from the plastic casing before separating the motherboard from its case.

    • Be very careful when repositioning the volume buttons, since the fragile digitizer ribbon cable runs from the motherboard to the digitizer right next to the volume buttons. It is very easy to damage the ribbon cable while working in this area.

    Thanks for the information, very useful. Does anyone know how the power button works? wiring? I am thinking of replacing it with a small push button. Mine broke. Thanks in advance, Jorge

  10. Because heat is required to remove the screen and LCD, it is advisable to remove the battery entirely as well. It is important to be very careful and use little force in this step. Too much force can damage the battery. A damaged battery can lead to an electrical fire or explosion of the battery.

    • Carefully and slowly work the iFixit Opening Tool down the edge of the battery pack. Angle the tool to pry it up.

    • When you have successfully lifted the battery pack up on one side or corner, carefully wedge the iFixit Opening Tool under the pack about 1/2" and work around the rest of the sides.

    • Be careful not to bend the battery pack.

  11. Use a heating tool such as an iOpener or Heat gun around the edges of the Amazon Fire's glass screen. The iOpener may take longer to use. However, a heat gun can warp the plastic if used incorrectly. As you heat the edges, use a separator tool such as a guitar pick  to  lift the glass panel up and hold it up as you work around the device. Do not use a separation tool on the top edge of the device where the front camera would be; the digitizer cable is located in this location and can easily be severed. Instead, work in a U shape until you have 3 sides lifted from the frame

  12. Note the digitizer cable coming through to the back as it may be hard to see! Carefully thread this piece through its slot and separate the glass panel from the device frame. If you are simply trying to replace a broken screen, you may stop here in this guide and reverse the steps to reassemble your Amazon Fire. Try to preserve as much of the double-sided foam adhesive as possible, since you will need it to reinstall the replacement screen.

    What about the 2 magnets in the plastic frame they came out when pulling out digitizer not sure if they have a specific way of going back in. Help plz

  13. To remove the LCD panel, flip the device over and detach the LCD digitizer cable from the frame if they have become stuck together. You can use  the iFixit Opening Tool to separate the LCD panel from the adhesive and it should come out of place with ease.

So....... what's that Glass panel part number?

Aaron Miller - Yanıt

Where can I get the Digitizer? It appears to me (from your guide) the screens (Digitizer and LCD) DO in fact, separate. It does seem odd to me, from being in the industry for so long, that the digitizer has a polarizer attached to it. That polarizer is usually adhered to the LCD screen and that usually suggests that the repair part would call for a screen assembly.. Not just a digitizer. Can you attach some more pictures of the digitizer and the connector itself to clarify? Also, If you know where to order the part domestically and can you post a link? Thank you! Great guide BTW.

interstone696 - Yanıt

If the speaker and wire (twisted red&white) are removed from the case (step 2 above), then you won't need to desolder the connection to the motherboard (step 3 above). Just leave it soldered and remove with motherboard (step 10 above).

Terry Roberts - Yanıt

....or desolder connection and leave the speaker & wire in the case, if you like to "play with powertools?" ;-)

Terry Roberts - Yanıt

Why remove the battery? It was by far the most tricky operation and exposed the battery to damage prying it out with a flat tool. Any puncture of the plastic jacket qoulds mean instant death to the battery and if any metal tool in contact, a fire hazard. BTW where do you get a replacement digitized for the 7inch 5th generation Kindle?

graham foulkes - Yanıt

Ordered mine from here: http://www.ebay.com/usr/guan_lcd took about 2.5 weeks, maybe more. Replaced my digitizer following this guide and the other one on this website. Everything went fine until I turned the tablet back on and I ended up with a rainbow haze over the screen. Screen is responsive like new, but I really can't see anything, Hope I didn't get a defective component

Angello - Yanıt

The rainbow haze is likely due to leaving the plastic protection from the inside of the replacement screen. It can be difficult to see. I had the same problem but levered up the screen and it was sorted. The screen light is refracted by the plastic coating I assume.

Andy Sampson -

PS: There's foam padding under the original digitizer, the replacement (same serial number) doesn't have the same foam padding, and it does't come with adhesive strips

Angello - Yanıt

hallo,

für Amazon Fire 7 5. Generation ist die Seriennummer SV98LN auf dem Gehäuse angegeben. Doch danach gekaufte Digitizer funktionieren nicht in jdem Fall in einem solchen Gerät. Kann ich alo nicht nach dieser Model-Nr. kaufen?

Lacking anything better on hand, I used rubber cement. Wish me luck.

Brian Byrd -

I used double-sided tape, cut to 5mm width. Worked for me

I used double-sided tape to hold down the digitizer. No more shattered screen and works perfectly.

all done to spec, picture looks good but no touch response??

jack-elynch - Yanıt

Does any one know where the Digitizer can be ordered from (apart from ebay) are Ifixit not going to stock this part? I know Amazon allways change parts and are a nightmare but someone somewhere must have bought the surplus stock from the factory making them? Thanks

James Caza - Yanıt

So yeah, I never desoldered that baby speaker :) just sticked him on the motherboard while away :D

For the removal of the digitizer, I had no means to heat whatsoever.... but didn't need it;

I got to grab a corner the hacking-way: I melted a 3mm hole on the plastic to get a tool under the screen :) and that was it (if a little smooth jack-like hole doesnt scare you, it's a real shortcut)

Then to get around more easily I added a bit of heat, but... just rubbing the screen with my fingers for 30secs was enough ! (really hot ! ouch !)

Very nice guide anyway, full of good advice !

Really helpful guide. But really how do you keep the screen down without a adhesive. Also I damaged the LCD screen in the process of removing the damaged touch screen. Guess the heat affected the LCD screen. Be careful on that one.

karthikeyan km - Yanıt

I just can't see how any of you did this without bending the battery?

The steps and tips are great. However without a new battery I can't tell if it's OK.

The battery bent despite great care…

Ducatis - Yanıt

do you sell LCD of these unit cause my screen has broken.thank u

Julia mariz - Yanıt

These steps helped tremedelously. I only had a few problems. Number 1 it’s harder then it looks to seperate the old lcd screen from the frame. Use tape on shattered screen to prevent more shards from happening and being broken up. Be careful. Number 2 there’s nothing holding the new screen to the frame. Make sure you have something to make it stick or use glue. I used double sided tape. Number 3 make sure you order the right screen for your kindle.

Paula B - Yanıt

I just finished replacing my screen & digitizer. It was easier to order the whole thing on Amazon.  Did a tablet repair once before and did severe the cable.  Now I just buy the screen and digitizer already together. These directions were very helpful. Especially since no other website showed how to get the digitizer out.  No need to desolder  the battery.  Just pry it up,  it’s only in the spot with 2 sided tape under it.  Make sure to use plenty of 2sided tape on the frame so the screen will stay down once you set it back in.

sngbird00 - Yanıt

I (a mom with absolutely no tech background) just finished replacing a cracked screen *toot*. Thank you so much for the instructions! However, I never was able to remove the motherboard or the battery. They were very firmly glued down. So, if you’re only replacing the screen, the only things you really need to disconnect seem to be the digitizer and the volume buttons (because they get in the way of the digitizer). Getting the glass off was a pain in the a$$, maybe because I was using a hairdryer lol. But I found that putting pieces of paper underneath the glass as I went along made it much easier.

Again, thank you so much for the instructions. I definitely could not have done it without them! My son is elated to have his tablet back.

ksschuber - Yanıt

So, just to be clear, you only removed the volume button and just pried everything up?

Hi,

My Tablet (Amazon fire 7) woeks well. touch works but LCD is just black. Under the sun light I can see booting logo, clock, battery and some details but there is no light on display?!! I am looking for a display if anyone has ! Please contact me by email: vaziritabar@hotmail.com

I went with this digitizer. It worked. The P/N on the box is:X001OF8VT3 The screen comes with new adhesive strips

clean the old adhesive off the frame. There is enough to reattach the LCD also. It’s a little sheet of 3M300LSE double sided tape strips.

Stick them down to the plastic and then remove the brown release tape.

The tools pictured are essential! I bought this kit.

https://www.amazon.com/Zacro-Opening-Spu...

The ribbon cables for the digitizer and LCD both have little pop up retainers that hold the ribbons in. The LCD ribbon is a ##&&% to get in.

Everything the instructions say to do, you you need to do. The only exception is the speaker wire.

There were two protective covers on the back of the digitizer, be sure to get them both. Leave the front one on till way last!

The battery is only attached around it’s perimeter. It can be pried out around the edges.

This procedure is right on! Thanks

Hi, can anyone help or advise I’ve changed the cracked screen put it all back together, When I switched it on I had the rainbow flare ( took apaprt again to take of screen protector on the inside of new screen) Now when it switch it on i’ve got grey stipe lines across the screen , checked all the connections, they look ok . What have I missed anyone know

jo-anne72 - Yanıt

I have this too minus the rainbow flare. I have the wide gray stripe and the only cause I can find is a very minor scratch on the black covering down the left side of the LCD. It feels like there might be a micro scratch right next to the scratch in the black tape. I wonder could this be the cause.

Rongwey -

Edit is not an option so I re-post. After fiddling with the LCD connector, the gray bar is gone but the display remains white with no picture. I can hear the startup sound . This makes me think there’s no damage to the LCD as I’d thought but may be a bad connection. Something else I can’t see without a microscope. Either way, I’ve ordered a replacement LCD and will say if this fixed it making the white screen absolute damage.
