    Hello Bradle
    I have the nexus 10, this tablet came with a manufacturing defect on the motherboard (this motherboard has a 32gb memory and apparently the problem is on de processor) I was wondering if it could be replaced by 16gb motherboard? because I have not found the 32 gb motherboard and only one available is the 16gb
    I await your prompt response

    This tablet is capable of providing haptic feedback but did you encounter a vibrotactor when you disassembled it?

    The end of my story : finally PowerbookMedic made a whole LCD and digitizer assembly available for $200, which I have bought, and 2 hours after receiving it, my Nexus 10 is back to life :-) I always feel better after repairing something thas has broken down vs. buying a replacement, and the added challenge of dissasembling and reassembling a tablet has doubled the reward.

    Good luck everyone with your Nexus ailments!

    Hi Bradley,

    I have a perfectly functionning Nexus 10 with a smashed glass. I’ve been looking for a replacement glass (or even a replacement LCD + digitizer as a second choice, which you have listed but out of stock) everywhere, and I can’t find anything.

    What would be my best move to restore this tablet?

    Anyone selling a non functionning Nexus 10 with a glass in good condition, please leave a message.

    I opened my tablet just now,I accidentally bumped the Black part. I dont know if thats the LCD, the black part on the lower part of the tablet. Now it wont open, so I think the problem is with the lcd. any thoughts?

    @ Kim – We’d have to see the device to see what the issue is as it could be any number of things.
