HP Spectre 13-3010ea touchscreen replacement

HP Spectre 13-3010ea

Hi there

 

I have a 2 and a half years old HP Spectre ultrabook,already out of warranty. It seems HP don't sell this model anymore and it's a bit hard to find  a more detailed info about it so here is my question.

 

There is a crack on the screen which doesn't affect the LCD screen (it's still annoying). The touchsreen itself doesn't work - I don't care much about this, I barely used it anyway.

 

From what I've read the outermost glass/touchsreen is a separate part and the LCD screen is another thing below it. So the question is: is it possible to replace ONLY the touchscreen/glass while keep the existing LCD screen? 

 

I saw a full LCD screen+Touchsreen/Digitizer set for sale but it's too expensive although I believe HP recommend to replace the full combo set. Are the 2 parts glued making it actually impossible to assemble separately? Or attached somehow so that you can take the glass/touchcreen part out?

 

I checked some retailers who sell both LCD screens only and digitizers/touchscreens only which means what I want to do might be possible but who knows... They do it for iphone screens too and they are glued. 

 

Thanks in advance for your help

Hi,

 

From the manual: no because the whole screen is ONE unit. If you wish, you can read more information on the first manual of the following link:

Regards.

Thanks for the quick response banhein

 

However separate parts of the LCD/Digitizer screen combo are (or have been) available:

 

http://www.laptopscreen.com/English/model/HP-Compaq/SPECTRE%2013-3010EA/ - they claim this is the LCD screen only 

 

http://www.touchscreensbuy.com/133-touch-screen-for-hp-spectre-133010ea-p-53781.html - this is just the touch screen 

 

And according to the manual the screen unit you are referring includes the top cover plate too. But this ebayer sells an LCD/touchscreen unit combo without this cover:

 

http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/HP-Spectre-13-3010ea-LED-LCD-Touch-Screen-with-Digitizer-for-13-3-FHD-Asse...

 

Which makes me think they might still be detacchable, at least the top cover seems to be. For the touchscreen I cannot say.
