    TF201 glass broken

    Hi guys,

    This happened to me

    Bought a Transformer Prime, and got the glass broken. The LCD screen itself is OK, the tablet is working just fine, but the glass is cracked.

    Spent 3 days searching, nothing. There are all kinds of parts for TF101, but TF201 -- not.

    Went to service guys, they want 400 bucks for the replacement: they say they can replace the LCD screen AND the glass. Obviously this makes no sense since the brand new TF201 costs about $500 for 32 GB version (which I have).

    Ideally, finding the glass with digitizer would solve the problem, but so far I can't find it.
    Seen this: http://www.asusparts.eu/index.php?cP..._222535_222541, but not sure if these are the right ones (and, still, they are quite expensive since I don't need LCD screen itself, because it's just fine)

    If someone has and idea where to get it/search for it, it would be great.

    Thanks

    Welcome to the forum

    That's a tough question. Can't tell from looking at the part if it really is what you need/want. Did it come that way? If so you need to get it exchanged. If it happened by accident you may have to bite the bullet.

    still nothing

    Hi,

    went to several different repair centers, nothing

    Everyone says I have no other options, just wait and hope that Asus will start selling these things cheaper than now or some 3rd party manufacturer will start producing digitizers separately.

    For now, I've bought screen protector to make sure my kid won't hurt his fingers on broken glass.

    Thanks

    PS yes, it was an accident, I've dropped my tablet accidently

    Did you ever get your tablet repaired if so what was the cost and who repaired it?

    Did you buy the Prime with a VISA card? If so, they have a 90 day accidental coverage policy that you can make a claim on...I'm in the process of doing it myself now
