    Cracked screen?

    Hi,

    I put too much pressure on my LinITX 8" and it now has a great big line down one side, I think I've cracked the LCD panel. . Can just the panel be replaced?

    I don't think the system can recover from that error

    get the lcd# off the panel, if you can find the same panel you can change just that....

    the lcd is a thin glass layer... the touchscreen is flexable plastic like....., hard to crack, much harder than a thin glass layer...
