I dropped my PRS-T1 and the screen cracked (one-third of the screen diagonally still works), so the electronics is still functioning. Replacement screens were available on eBay from the far-east but with no instructions. Before risking ordering one, I stripped down my T1. The screen appears to be heavily glued to a skeleton metal chassis... I am presuming I'd need some special heating jig or solvent to remove it... and so I gave up. Is there any chance of reviving this or should I just bin it?

Look at this thread on Mobileread, it also has a link where you can download the service manual.

There is also a video guide on youtube.

Please note that I don't own this ereader and that this is only the result of a quick web search, so I can't help you further.

    Very good - you found my thread on MobileRead :-) ISTR the service manual was not a lot of use to a home-repairer. The Youtube video is something new and far more useful I think so cheers for that. I am now inspired to have a go, assuming the replacement screens are still available... will report back one way or another.

  • I have now ordered a replacement screen from Hong Kong (£21)... interesting that the guy in the video couldn't get the screen unstuck either and just cracked/smashed it off and cleaned up the mess!
