I dropped my Android tablet and now the touch screen doesn`t work. How can I fix it?


I accidentally dropped my tablet off the side of my bed and it landed face down and now the touch screen doesn't respond to my touch. How can I fix it? It's an Android ARCHOS 70b internet tablet.

Replace the digitizer. That's what detects your touches.

You cannot be able to fix it personally because you might damage it even more, since you do not know how to take it apart. The best thing to do is to take it to an experienced electronic technician for fixing.

Go to the place where you got it, and asks them if they can try to fix it, if they can't ask a trained/expert electronic technician to fix it. Also pray to God it'll work. :-)

take it to the company the only thing they would do is probably take the screen off n replace it.

Replace the screen - I did it myself as described in the blog post: http://workingmatt.blogspot.co.uk/2013/03/replacing-android-tablet-touchscreen.html

IMPORTANT!IMPORTANT IMPORTANT MUSTREAD THIS FIRSTTT I have the same tablet you are talking about and its VERY simple to fix this by conecting a keyboardto it. You can buy a cheap adaper that plugs the keyboard onto your tablet since the tablet doest have a usb.
NOW press ctrl esc at the same time to unlock your tablet
AFTER you've done this, press the on button for a bit on the side of your tablet until it gives you the option tourn off.
USING the arrows on your keyboard click on he okay button to shut down tablet.
Turn back on as you normaly would and this shoud be the least of your worries now. You can take a deep breath now..
