screen broken where to buy ?

Hi there,

It seems that my kobo aura hd screen just broke at the top right.. Fnac doesn't want to argue with it (i'm French, that's the french reseller) and i don't want to put it in trash bin.

Do you know where to buy a replacement one ? I didn't find on google.

Thanks

There are other threads in the forum regarding screen replacements for Touches and Glos. You might find something there. Alisomething.com

Since the screens are sold by the manufacturer exclusively to Kobo, and the Aura HD was touted as “Limited edition”, at least when it came out, there's a good chance you can't get your screen anywhere outside of Kobo customer care.

Tough break, it seems. Sorry, man.
Basically, for all of us it seems to mean that if the screen breaks, you have to buy a new reader.
Not that I regret buying it, but that makes Aura HD even more expensive that we thought.

...and rest assured that your eReader's screen is durable in the face of scratches and drops. In fact, in a 360º product test, Kobo Aura HD was proven to have the most durable E Ink eReader screen.**

** An independent Key Drop Test showed ClarityScreen+ stood up to drops from 3' up to 2.4 times better than the competition.

From rest assured to Requiescat In Pace. And so it goes.
You are not alone.

I doubt you'll find a screen. You'll probably be better off looking for a cheaper used Aura HD, although I'm not sure there will be that many of them around because of being sold as a Limited Edition reader and not sure the cost will be much cheaper than just getting a new reader.
