    Hello all,

    Unfortunately I have dropped my Lumia 2520 and the screen has shattered, everything else is working fine, only the screen is broken. I have searched the internet for a replacement screen and digitiser but I am unable to find anywhere that supply these. Also I contacted local phone and computer repair centres, all were unable to help.

    Is anyone on the forum able to offer advice on the supply of the screen etc, or a repair centre?

    I live in the UK however I would be willing to send it out of the UK as long as the price was not too high.

    Thanks in advance,

    David

    Take it to a Nokia Care Centre I have put a link to all the store in the UK:

    Support - Userguides, updates and downloads - Nokia - UK

    Or use the store locator:

    Store Locator - Nokia - UK

    Thanks for the advice, I'll try the York shop as it's the nearest place to me on the list.
    Thanks again for the help.

    No joy from the York shop, they didn't seem to have even heard of the Nokia LUMIA 2520. I have not tried any other centres yet. I can't find any suppliers of screens on the internet ether. Is it that this device is still to new, or that Nokia are not going to bother supporting it? That would be a shame if not.
    I am using a surface 2 at the moment and, to put it simply its not as good. Perhaps the kickstand on the surface 2 is the only advantage over the Nokia. Any thoughts or advice?

    Any luck with a replacement screen? I dropped mine last night and now there is a nice crack from top to bottom. :( Even the bottom corner of my power keyboard is cracked so it doesn't hold the tablet as well but at least it still works. I'm reluctant to try and replace the screen protector because I don't want it to pull the glass apart and mess up the digitizer and screen underneath (the protector cracked too).

    The MS site pointed me to Palco Repair Center for US based repair and they estimate the repair to be $285. I've seen refurb 2520s for that. Maybe I'll try the screen protector replacement and see if I can make this tablet last a while. For that price I'm willing to swap the screen my self if I can find a replacement.

    I guess I should post an update on my broken screen situation. I was very fortunate to pick up a practically brand new 2520 + power keyboard on eBay for $300. I decided that now I could risk taking off the Illumishield screen protector off of my broken screen and had a great surprise. The crack, that actually had depth, was only in the screen protector! I have an extra tablet now, which my daughter loves to use since it much lighter than her laptop.

    I was also able to repair the cracked corner of the keyboard using the heat gun portion of my soldering workstation.

    Hope others have as good of luck.
