Broken screen or corrupt image?

Hello,

Someone ask me to fix their e-reader. I think the screen is broken, but i don't see any damage. Or does it also looks like this when the internal SD card is corrupt?

See that diagonal line? The screen substrate is smashed.

I was afraid of that, but I wasn't sure. Then it needs a new screen. Thanks!

The best way to fix it is to buy a new Kobo Libra 2. Replacing the screen is not all that easy to do. And given the cost of a new screen, it may not be cost effective.

Problematic with eink vs LCD as there is a calibration factor that's factory set. Often you end up with poor contrast. Also the eink screen cost is much higher than LCD for similar size.

Thanks! Then it will be a new one instead of fixing it. It looked easy at first sight, but now i see it is also glued too!

Generally correct, except that certainly that should be Clara 2E for a Clara replacement? Maybe the owner prefers 6". Or no buttons. Or a symmetrical design. Or has a better use for the fifty extra bucks. Sigh. The Libra 2 is not the answer to all device selection issues; far from it.

A Nia, Clara 2E, Libra 2 and Sage all have different +/-.
