After a year+ of having this lovely device and it spending most of that time surviving in the hands of Captain Destruct-O AKA, the 4 year old Tasmanian devil I gave birth to. IIIIII was the one that dropped the tablet. The screen cracked but still displayed and was responsive to touch...... for a little bit. Some time over the course of the day it went into sleep mode and when I tried to turn it back on. No display. The volume was up so when I connected the charger (thinking it might have died) I heard the charging "ding". I got online to google it and found this amazing forum and all you wonderfully helpful and knowledgeable people!! I read about the connector cable losing connection when being dropped and decided to pop this baby open. Everything went fine, display was restored, All was well... for about a week. Now the screen is unresponsive. I have rebooted (holding in power button). Cold rebooted. Nothing. There have been no further drops to my knowledge. Not sure what my next step should be. Is there any chance this is anything besides the digitizer or should I just put on my lipstick now and prepare to find out I am screwed. I have seen the guide to replacing this digitizer and I gotta say... its a bit intimidating. I am not at all interested in spending 200+ for someone else to repair the screen as I can just get a new one for just a little more but I am not opposed to a lower cost DIY option providing its not throwing good money after bad so to speak. Thanks in advance.
