Broken tablet screen

    The expected has happened and my son has broken the screen on his 7" tablet. The tab still works fine but the screen in unresponsive. It is an E-Star, I think, from DID(rushed purchase). It is possible to repair, or even worth it?

    Would a replacement from China be a cheaper/stress free option?

    The problem with cheap tablets is finding spare parts for them can be difficult to be financially no sense in some cases (the replacement screen may cost near as much as the tablet itself). Try ebay and if unsuccessful a new tablet may be the best option :) .

    I got a white cnm 7inch tablet as a gift from argos at christmas I forgot I left it on foot rest when getting up from chair, fell flat on its face, screen cracked and glass along the frame. Think the digitizer is broke too, is there any cheap way to have this fixed. Its was €195, I'm sickened its just sitting there..
