Glass Over Screen Broken
is it possible to replace protection glass over the screen ?
thanks for answer
Apple in its infinite wisdom and cost cutting measures has now fused the glass to the display. So it only comes as a complete unit. Here's how it's replaced: iMac Intel 27" Retina 5K Display Display Replacement
Apple Part #661-00200
Reports have been posted of some that have separated the glass but none repaired successfully.
Most units available in the USA cost around $500. A China seller on eBay has it for $310 + $65 shipping. Warning, check the ratings on these sellers.
For small cracks (as long as there’s no missing piece of glass), I used windshield repair kit for cars, and it made the crack almost invisible. Costs about 10 bucks.
Buying a functional iMac 5K with broken glass right now for a cheap price.
Wondering if anybody has found a glass part anywhere ?
I have a 2011 27in laying around the house, has anybody tried using that one ? Maybe by cutting off the metal parts at the bottom, it could fit ?
Thanks for your help.
It can be done, I have done it, I can’t find the actual glass anywhere for purchase, heat and air suction vacuum is the answer.
Does anyone know if the dimensions of the a1312 glass panel and the the a1419 panel are the same?
Could you try fitting the 2011 glass to it and letting us know how the dimensions compare with removing the metal bottom pieces ?
