Cracked glass. Where to purchase?
I have a Nokia 1520, where can I purchase another screen from?
The first of the new generation Nokia devices – the first with a 1080p screen, the first with a quad-core Krait processor
There are 3 layers, an outer glass lens ($5) a digitizer (I bought both for $50) and an LCD. If your phone fully responds the touch it isn't too hard to repair just the glass lens, however I wouldn't recommend attempting to remove both the digitizer and the glass from the LCD.
The glass is easily removed with a heat gun and very thin wire, however the digitizer is like egg shell, the glue holding it onto the LCD is extremely strong, the distance between the LCD and digitizer is tiny, and the polarizing film on the lcd is easily warped by heat.
This means that you cannot use wire to get under it, and your only hope is taking something like a razor blade and chipping away from underneath the digitizer for 5 hours until it's all gone, and then removing the cable that attaches to the frame on the inside.
After finding the digitizer hard to get under, I made the mistake of accidentally going one layer deeper, removing the polarizing filter and causing minor damage to the LCD itself. (pressure)
It can be done, but it is more practical to replace just the glass, or the entire LCD assembly.
If it is just the digitizer thats cracked (the top glass) then you are looking at a cheap repair but if its the actual display the LCD then the repair gets quite expensive.

Does anyone know who can fix my Nokia 1520 in the Los Angeles area, but that will not charge me an arm and a leg??? The phone fell on concrete today and it cracked my screen. I can touch on the upper part where it is not broken, but the lower part that is broken, I cannot touch. PLEASE HELP!
