    Cracked glass on 7’’ LCD VGA Monitor





    "Powers up great!"
    The "vendor" is not too quick on answering my questions, so until he does:

    Do you think this will still display an image well enough, or is it a lost cause?
    This would be my first in-car LCD, and the price is VERY good, and I would like to use it as a "proof of concept" before dropping $$$ on a display. For my present needs, and the cost of it, I only care that it displays an image.

    It is a touch-screen, but I do not care so much about that for the moment, however it begs the question of how would one repair this to regain touch-screen functionality?

    Thoughts? Opinions? Thanks for looking.

    Really hard to see, the images aren't nearly large enough. It looks, from what I can tell, that it's the touch part that's actually cracked, and not the LCD. If so, that's fairly easily replacable, from what i've seen.

    yes, it's probably the touchscreen panel that's broken. If the LCD panel itself is actually broken, then I would expect part of the display to simply not work at all, sort of like this:


    Touchscreen LCD's have a touch screen panel that is separate from the LCD, it is simply a 1/8" thick or so clear panel made of a couple sheets of glass and the touchscreen element inside. If the screen is the same dimensions as a lilliput/xenarc then you should be able to replace it with a panel made for those, or if you don't care about the touchscreen function then you could just pull it out and use the display by itself. Might need some sort of spacer around the edge to make up for the thickness of the touchscreen panel after removal, but that's easy.
    But don't take it from me! here's a quote from a real, live newbie:

    Thanks!

    Excellent, thanks for the responses.

    I will post larger and better pics soon.
    It bugs me that the vendor is slow to respond to my queries, but at the price he is asking, I might just jump in and grab if even if that upper right area is un-viewable. I would prefer to know in advance, but oh well.

    I will bump if/when there are updated pics and info back from vendor.

    Anyone else with more input they care to share?
