Attention: authors aren't responsible for malfunctions of your devices, which can be got as a result of using this information. Everything you do is for your fear and risk. Using of such method removes tablet or an e-book from warranty service!
Is it possible to change the touch screen yourself? Of course, it is, but you should be very careful. Methods of change for different models are similar and are shown well on Youtube. For example here, here and here. Labeling, which must be ordered by the panel, most often located on its ribbon cable.
Optimal temperature of desoldering drier is 180 degrees. It's not enough for deformation of plastic case, but it's ok for melting of glue, by which touch screen is connected to the case.
If the older layer of glue doesn't hold even after warming-up of touch screen on the perimeter, you may need glue for repairing mobile phones B-7000 or thin 3M double sided tape on the plastic base.

What to read?Robert Galbraith "The Cuckoo's Calling"
. When a troubled model falls to her death from a snow-covered Mayfair balcony, it is assumed that she has committed suicide. However, her brother has his doubts, and calls in private investigator Cormoran Strike to look into the case. Strike is a war veteran - wounded both physically and psychologically - and his life is in disarray. The case gives him a financial lifeline, but it comes at a personal cost: the more he delves into the young model's complex world, the darker things get - and the closer he gets to terrible danger ...
What to read?Robert J. Sawyer "Wake"
. Caitlin Decter is young, pretty, feisty, a mathematics genius - and blind. Still, she can surf the net with the best of them, following its complex paths clearly in her mind. But Caitlin's brain long ago co-opted her primary visual cortex to help her navigate online. So when she receives an implant to restore her sight, instead of seeing reality, the landscape of the World Wide Web explodes into her consciousness, spreading out all around her in a riot of colors and shapes. While exploring this amazing realm, she discovers something - some other - lurking in the background. And it's getting more and more intelligent with each passing day. The first of a spellbinding future history trilogy that charts what will happen when the world's first first, and superior, artificial-intelligence is born in the web.Gregory David Roberts "Shantaram"

There, he established a free health clinic and also joined the mafia, working as a money launderer, forger and street soldier. He found time to learn Hindi and Marathi, fall in love, and spend time being worked over in an Indian jail. Then, in case anyone thought he was slacking, he acted in Bollywood and fought with the Mujahedeen in Afghanistan...To find these books, check out the "e-library".
