Hi,

Many thanks for your tutorial.

One quick question, where did you buy the replacement screen?

Many thanks in advance for your help.

Kind regards

Hello, King Koton,

I already had another broken Kobo, so I could reuse the screen. I don’t think you can buy original parts, so maybe you will have to get a broken Kobo at an auction.

Good luck, John

Hi King Koton, I brought a brand new screen on AliExpress, look for ED0680G1 (the Kobo Aura HD uses the exact same screen as the Kobo Aura H2O).

Hello John, Ur information did helped me for 100%. We reinstalled a screen to based on ur guide. But i have a question. After reinstalling the front bezel the touch screen is responding reliable. sometimes he doesnt turn a page or somtimes turn more then one page etc. I usend also there the existing adhesive. Can that  be a the reason of less responding quality. I hope u have an advice. Kind regards, Jan de Jong
