    I got three Coby Tablets and a Brick aint one.
    My kid broke the screen on my MID1024. I doesnt appear that a replacement screen is available from Coby and I have searched Ebay and Craigslist looking for a replacement. Has anyone had to have the screen replaced and if so where did you source the LCD from. I know some people think that a $230.00 tablet is disposable but not me.


    Please help Thanx-:confused:

    Curious to find out if you found any sources for lcd screens. I checked alibaba.com but didn't see any thing related to the coby brand

    Can you give a link to where you bought it? I'm googling the number on mine "FPC-187T" and not seeing it.

    Thanks.

    Later,

    Hmmm, I am almost sure 7024 uses "ut7gm" model, while 1024 with 1024n boards (1024x600 lcd resoution) uses "lp101" model.

    I was sworn to secrecy...but a company that imports tablets from china that sounds like "moby" saw my post here...(they're watching) Said that as a "one time only" would repair the screen. after some paperwork exchange and shipping them the unit I received a repaired unit ( yeah right, different SN and NIB). I got it back with a nice letter saying the screen had been replaced and the OS returned to original state. got it back, updated ROM , restored it and all is good. Good luck with this company if you need your screen replaced..It most likely wont happen. I jumped through more hoops than a circus poodle. My kid still catches hell for breaking it...parenting through guilt!

    P.S. to the company that did the "repair" a big thank you! My 1024 is still rocking along. Now how about some 3.0 source code leakage?

    It now has a 16Gb internal flash..does everything I need with plenty of storage. It's been so long since I flashed this thing I don't recall which FW I used but would like to thank everyone who works with these tablets. From the people who crack them open to code writers. thank you and keep up the good work...even those who brick and break their tablets, thanks for the learning experience !
