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.
