AOD150 Acer screen replacement

I popped open my Acer AOD150 to see how difficult LCD screen replacement will be.'s certainly not a piece of cake. On a 1 to 10 scale of difficulty, I rate it about 7 or 8. I don't recommend it unless you have worked on fragile plastic devices a fair amount. It's not easy disassembling without breaking the tabs and slots, etc. I'm pretty sure I didn't do it correctly as I broke a tab or two. There are plenty and it's built fairly well, but these are tiny fragile plastic pieces that don't appear to be made for disassembly and re-assembly. And then the industrial strength double-faced tape on the front of the screen is kind of a pain.

My new screen should be here this week.

Anyone with hints on this procedure, let me know.

I had it completely apart and put the broken screen back in, and it works no that's worth something.

About $65 for the screen from "Screenusa" on Ebay.
