In order to make sure that exactly this model of the screen is installed in your e-book it is necessary to disassemble your device before buying the screen. Some manufacturers of e-books install different displays into different batches of the same model!
On the flat cable of the display there are pasted some paper labels. There is given the voltage VCON as 3 numbers with a dot after the first number, which is needed for the image correction, on one of them. While on the other label which is bigger there is the model of the screen. There is shown marking area on the display in the picture.

What to read?Charlaine Harris "Day Shift"
. Welcome to Midnight, Texas. It's a quiet little town, perched at the junction between Davy Road and Witch Light Road, and it's easy to miss. With its boarded-up windows, single traffic light and sleepy air, there's nothing special about Midnight . . . which is exactly how the residents like it.
So when the news comes that a new owner plans to renovate the run-down, abandoned old hotel in town, it's not met with pleasure. Who would want to come to Midnight, with its handful of shops, the Home Cookin diner, and quiet residents - and why? But there are bigger problems in the air. When Manfred Bernado, the newest resident in town, is swept up in a deadly investigation suddenly the hotel and its residents are the least of the towns concern. The police, lawyers and journalists are all headed to Midnight, and it's the worst possible moment...James M. Cain "Metro 2034"
. An amoral young tramp. A beautiful, sullen woman with an inconvenient husband. A problem that has only one grisly solution--a solution that only creates other problems that no one can ever solve...To find these books, check out the "e-library".
