Hey guys. I have a problem with my N810. One day I was reading some E-book and my cigarette dropped on the screen. Yeah I know, it was a stupid mistake. The LCD screen works perfectly fine, but it's the touch that is messed up and the part where the burn happened is a little warped. I've tried calibrating the screen but everything is still messed up clicks in wrong places and everything. I've been searching for months for a replacement digitizer( hope that's what I need). Can anyone give me any ideas where I could possibly find a replacement if there is possibly a replacement at all? Would a n800 digitizer work in the n810? Are there different models with the same part that my model has? Any help would be greatly appreciated!

im in the same boat, except mine slowly died over about 2 months a year a go. havent been able to find any replacement digitizer/screens worth the money.

Im on the line about buying a new n810, or some kind of tablet pc/device that i can put linux on, nothing over ~$150 though.

Kinda sol on this one, i thought about a bt/usb host mouse for my n810, but cant seem to figure that out either.

you can vnc into it, but for my application that defeats the purpose as a tablet device.

I think its possible to use a mouse, or perhaps even a ps3 controller to provide inputs, but couldn't find the info/put forth the effort. Personally something with a bit more beefier cpu/gpu is what i'm looking for, but thats a tough bill to fit if you want linux, querty hardware kb, and a high res screen like the n810 has.

The $79 new n810s offered at buy.com are tempting, and i check ebay every now and then. I'd love to replace mine, but i dont want to sink alot of cash into a new tablet.

Wish we had a sucessor to the n810, that was like a n900 light w/out the gsm, cheaper, bigger screen (capacitive amoled would be tits), and on par or a bit less powerful than a n900.

I love my n900, but i also loved my n810 in its own special way.

Theres plenty of alternative uses for it though, webserver, ddwrt, some arduino stuff, ect.

EDIT-

Used screen/kb replacement, but tested as working. Too pricey for me considering a used mint/new device though.
