    cracked screen-can I fix it?

      Any way to fixed a cracked Nook Color screen yourself? My husband is very capable with this stuff, just need to know how to do and and where to get the parts. Please tell me this is possible! :-(

          Unfortunately there is no way to fix the screen without voiding the warranty. However, I don't believe the 1yr defective warranty will cover a cracked NC screen. If you purchased the Accidental Protection Plan, I'd reccomend calling 1800-THE-BOOK for a replacement. Just curious...how did it happen?

              Good post.

               

              If you have no other recourse there are people that fix (replace) the screens for all kinds of things-iphones, ipods, smartphones, and all.  They may be able to replace it at some point if you can find someone who does this.  I know my brother has done this for other's smartphones and has for iphones and ipods (I'm no suggesting him, by the way), but others out there are running lucrative businesses doing this.

               

              There is also one place that shows how to take the NC apart, but you'd have to find some place to get the screen and be certain this is something that you or someone you know can do.  They sometimes require special tools for screen removal.
