Has anyone successfully done this with the 7000 using the replacement part links noted in this thread? Where are the part #s? I need both the LCD and the glass. I pull the ribbon ribbon off the LCD and broke it gooood. I need a part number for the combo. PDAparts.com doesn't appear to have a 55xx series.

Smithdal,

I personally replaced the glass panel only using part;

... on Wednesday of this week. The glass panel now comes with the 1/8" double-sided tape applied (you simply peel the backing). Look for my thread called "TSU7000 with cracked screen!";

I replaced the glass only. This require some quiet time and good lighting. There are actually 2 ribbon cables-1 ribbon cable is from the digitizer glass screen and is easily removed with a miniaturized version of the type of connection used to connect some laptop hard drives. The black clip slides away from the center of the processor board to the periphery of the board. The larger of the ribon cable is removed by rotating a very small arm/clamp counterclockwise into the processor board. Mine was a bit sticky in removing the ribbon cable from the second connector.
I placed each part in order as I removed them and assured that the unit booted after installing the ribbon cables and before installing the remaining parts.

One note, the plastic cover for the USB port and the docking connector is a small separate piece that mus be placed before "sandwiching" the back piece back on to the unit and securing with the 4 torx screws.

As mentioned in other places the basic steps are:
1)remove slide out back panel and battery
2)remove 4 torx screws and pull case back off the pronto exposing the processor board.
3)remove the 3 torx screws affixing the processor board to the mounting posts.
4)gently remove the 2 ribbon cables as instructed above.
5)the channel/vol button row and a rectangular mounting /spacer piece wil likely pop out, and the contact pad for all the hard buttons will also pop out
6)you will be left with lcd screen embedded and protected by a metal rectangular case to which the flat glass lcd screen is affixed (aggressively).
7) Use an exacto blade and separate the glass at the junction to the metal frame and separate the glass (which may split into 2 elements-glass/plastic) from the metal frame. The ribbon cable connected to the digitizer glass is adhered to the back side of the lcd cage and can be slow separated by gently pulling.
8)Scrape/clean all the adhesive residue from the metal frame.
9)Take out the new glass digitizer screen-placing the digitizer ribbon cable in the same place as before it was removed. Remove plastic protection from anterior and posterior surfaces new digitizer glass. Remove paper cover from 1/8" double backed tape and line up accurately and align/place on to metal frame.
10) Put humpty dumpty back on the wall.

Good luck.

Mick,

Where were you able to fine a replacement glass screen? My LCD screen is fine, but the screen is cracked.

Captn, I honestly don't know where to get a 3k
screen.


This is for the glasstop ALONE:
[Link: gethightech.com]

This is for the LCD and glasstop:
[Link: gethightech.com]

This is for the LCD ONLY:
[Link: wholesalepdas.com]

I ordered my glasstop on Wednesday from pdaparts.com,
but I imagine it will take a couple weeks to get
here.

Lorit, the URLs above will work. You will want the glasstop only (this is for the 7000) and the part is in stock.

This is a great post! My wife just dropped my TSU3000 on her knee and put a nice crack in the glass. It will turn on and I don't see anything wrong with the actual LCD portion.
So does the same glass top for the TSU7000 fit the TSU3000?

Thanks!
Gary

Stupid question, is it possible to upgrade a 3000 to a color screen like the 7000?

The 3000 and 7000 use different screen controllers, screens so the short answer is NO.

My Pronto TSU7000 Lcd comes on but it doesn't respond to the touch. What is wrong? What is the part number I need?

Did you click the links in the first post at the top of this page? More that likely, you will need only the Glasstop.

However, before ordering one, ensure that using a smooth business card, that you can run it around the edges of the entire screen to make sure that nothing's wedged between the bezel and the glasstop. Sometimes, things get wedged in there and effectively make the touch screen non-responsive as the garbage wedged in there triggers a false press.
