Re: Archos 70 LCD replacement

I got one from him. Arrived damaged. Initial apology that's all. No replacement or further response. That's really unfortunate. When I decided to order, I was preparing a worse case scenario that it's a scam or goods are not as specs. I was lucky. I don't think you will be able to get any replaceme...

Re: Archos 70 LCD replacement

I see some posts where people are saying letel-tiger was offering LCD replacement screens for somewhere around $35. Well here's a copy of a email where I was quoted $77. .... Read the line, $35 is just for the LCD, you have not included the shipping. BTW, I'm not related to the seller. I'm a happy ...

Re: DIY Archos 70 LCD replacement - successful!!

Do you have to use the same screen as a replacment? So you couldnt use a newer type or a more sensitive screen? Not too sure I understand your question. You have to know what's broken. The LCD or the touchscreen (digitizer). If it's the LCD, you can order from various places, I think the cost is ab...

Re: DIY Archos 70 LCD replacement - successful!!

As long as you are comfortable. Just that I think the ebay seller is getting the stock from the same source.

Basically I just want to let everyone know that the replacement works using the mentioned LCD.

If you need help, just buzz me.

Re: DIY Archos 70 LCD replacement - successful!!

I used the obook broker. Cost price of the lcd is about usd$35, shipping will vary depending on country. You have to pay some service fee to the broker. Paid using paypal. I think there are a few on this forum ordered through obook. So far so good so why take the risk through the unknown ebay seller?

It's CNY220, not USD Which is about USD43!

Re: separating lcd and digitizer on the Archos 70 - done!!

I have made progress and separated the digitizer and LCD. The way it's assembled together will make DIY replacing of LCD possible and it won't mess out the alignment, hence causing calibration issue. I took it apart and put it back together. Power the 70 up and the screen calibration is not affected...

Re: Repair Cracked Screen... on an Archos 101 IT :(

Hi,
I'm from Singapore as well. In the same situation now with a crack 70 LCD screen.
So are you going to send it back for replacement? I have not decided yet but I'm ok with the waiting time as I have a 101. I was quoted SGD$200 by Memory world as well.

Re: What to do with a 70 with a broken LCD screen ?

The distributor quoted me around 120 Euro for the replacement and will have to send back to Archos. I drop the idea of repairing. If I can only get the screen somewhere I may try to the repair myself. I think I'll have to get the digitizer and LCD as one set. Anyone managed to get a replacement scre...

What to do with a 70 with a broken LCD screen ?

It's too expensive to send in for a screen replacement.
Besides hooking it up to a TV through HDMI, get a bluetooth keyboard with trackpad, and start using it as a Archos 32" (size of the TV) device.

Any other good ideas how to make use of the 70 without a cracked screen ?

Re: Broken LCD screen

Me too, my daughter just broke her Archos 70 LCD. I have not called up the distributor yet to check on repair cost (if they can replace it) but I'm doubtful that they will have the LCD screen to replace it...... Since she uses it more for Kindle, I may just head to a China tablet website and oder he...
