Replace TouchScreen

3 posts in this topic

I need to replace only the Touch Screen on my Prophet.

I have bought a replacement Touch Screen and opened my case fully to reveal TFT/Tocuch Screen part.

I was disappointed to note that I will need to do some soldering, but worse, I noticed that the TFT and Touch Screen were stuck together. What do I do? Is is a case of being forceful and pulling it apart?!

Would be great if anyone could give me some support!


Thank you,
