How to fix a Family Edition Xoom with a Cracked Digitizer

I have a cracked screen/digitizer on my Family Edition Xoom and I have a few questions:

  1. Does the digitizer on the regular Xoom work with the Family Edition Xoom?
  2. Is there a tutorial on replacing the digitizer for this?
  3. Does anyone know how to open the tablet? The original Xoom has 2 screws that must be remove first, the FE doesn't have them.

I have been unable to find any you tube videos on how to disassemble my xoom family edition. I was able to open it up, but now I need to know what I have to remove to replace the screen. The only video I have found is for a different xoom and there seems to be an awful lot of parts that are not pertinent to my particular device. Can you help?

I can answer the 1st question for you. No, the original xoom digitzer will not work for the family edition. I know because i ordered one from a company saying it should be the same, but it clearly was not. I myself am having a very difficult time finding parts or instructions on how to do this repair. Hope you have better success than me :)

I can believe how hard it is to find this. Others must have cracked the screen.

If you want to replace your broken LCD Screen of the Xoom Family Edition, after two years I've broken mine, I found a reliable seller (Fibica Store) in Ebay (http://www.ebay.com/itm/New-10-1-LCD-Lap...). I've bought mine and replaced it, and now after two years with it broken, I have mine working again with ICS and everything else. It's not so fast as my new Nexus 7 (with 4 cores), but it works and I can use it for write bigger texts and others.

If you want to try to fix it, first you will need a sharpen tool (small screwdriver, small knife...) anything that it's small enough to put on the sides of the Xoom Family Edition. It doesn't have any screw to open it, just a press and lock (sorry, and couldn't find a best name for it). You have to take care when you insert the sharpen tool, because it will mark the plastic if you force it (Be carefull, I've marked mine). After that, you will have to loose all the cables and screws (philips now) that hold the main board and it's circuits. Again, be carefull enough, and before you remove the screws and cablea, take a shot (picture) of the opened Xoom FE, to remember where you put those screws back to it. Do not touch the speakers or the cameras, because you will cut the membrane or let grease on the lens.

After you've removed all the internal pieces (if you have any doubt in how to do it, ask me), you will see that the LCD have an aluminum frame. You don't need to remove it from the LCD, the new one have the same aluminum frame, but you will have to cut some pieces from the new frame. I've used an cutting pliers to rip it of. But again, if you prefer to remove the frame to do it, just do it. It's better, it's more assured, I've almost broken my new LCD. But after you start buying the new scren, first, take a look at the position of the connector, before you buy it. Remember to talk with the seller about it. I've bought one, and first came a LCD Screen in the wrong side of my original screen.

After installing the new LCD screen, remember to clean the glass and the LCD very well, and do not leave any dust inside it, because if you let, it will bother you everytime you use it. Just use lenses cloth to clean it. Now you can reinstall all the internal pieces of your Xoom FE. And press the Power button, if yours it is charged. Enjoy

Cheers!

I followed your instructions to the letter to replace my screen, but the touch isn't responding. Any idea why?

What is the name of the manufacturer and model of your screen that you bought?

I bought mine with the fibica_store seller on Ebay. The first screen that came was incompatible with mine, but the second worked perfectly.

The manufacturer that worked on my tablet is the PCB Hannstar.
