Is It Worth Repairing My Asus?

  morddwyd 12:45 03 Sep 2017

Entirely through my on stupidity, no excuses, I have cracked the screen of my ASUS ZenPad Z300M 10-Inch Tablet.

At £150 for a new one is it worth repairing?

If it is only the glass that has been broken, then it appears that a replacement can be purchased for around £15 - £20.

I'd rate that as "worth a try"

Hard to tell.

The display comes on, but doesn't respond to touch so it may be the digitizer as well.

I's also not a DIY job for me, vision and dexterity problems.

In a word, the answer is no!

£100+ for a repair, and the repair shop themselves say they can get me a new one for about £120!

I'll mark this as dead.

Thanks for the response.

morddwyd, if it's not responding and as you say have a vision and dexterity problem it will likely cost more than it's worth. If you have nothing you need off the tablet you can factory reset it and then sell it on ebay etc to recoup some of the money CLICK HERE for instructions. Due to no screen control you should be able to hold the power button until it powers off. If you need to retrieve any documents and don't have a bluetooth keyboard attached you could try connect a USB keyboard/mouse using a USB to micro USB adaptor, after connecting the keyboard/mouse you will need to reboot for them to work.

Thank you BRYNIT and my apologies.

I had totally forgotten about power and volume key methods.

I can only blame senile decay!

Busy today but will give it a try tomorrow and update.
