    Hi all,

    Just woke up this morning and my Coby 8042 was staring at me with a cracked screen!:(
    Touch is working though, and half of the screen is working a bite.
    So I need to fix this. If someone knows a 8042 with a working screen or maybe a equivalent screen that can work please share. I'm currently digging on eBay.
    If this isn't gonna be fixed maybe will look for an other Tablet.

    Ricky:(

    Ebay is about the only place I know, you most likely can buy another used tablet for less money. I checked ebay today a lot of 9742 are being sold, it's a gamble buying a tablet for parts and get it working, I have had good luck doing this, doesn't mean you will, but it's worth a shot.

    I already did, well gave it away to my grandson, He loves it uses it everyday. He also has a 9742 but uses it less and less, So while he doesnt use 9742 I am working on it.

    Just made a livesuite image for 9742 with CM10, So if the tablet became unbootable I could use that image if need be. Anyway if screen isn't broken then bid on the 8042.
