Replacing Your Omnia.11 Touchscreen

Updated by Johnny Goldsmith


This document covers the process of replacing the touchscreen in your Omnia.11.

Removing the Screen

  1. After powering off the unit, remove the top cover.
  2. Disconnect the touchscreen cable from the carrier board.
  1. On the front of the unit, remove the LCD bezel with a small screwdriver by pressing down on the top three tabs.
There are also three tabs on the bottom of the bezel, but you can remove the frame from the unit without needing to press and release them.
  1. Unscrew the four screws holding the screen in place.
  2. To remove the screen, you will have to gently pry it away from its case.
Take note of the orientation of the screen and cable when pulling the screen away from the unit because it is possible to put the new screen in backward or upside down. Nothing is keyed or marked and the front side of the glass, where all of the touch sensors are, looks just like the backside, where there are no touch sensors.

Installing the New Screen

To install the new screen, simply follow the above directions in reverse order.

To ensure that you are installing the new screen in the proper direction, you will want the barcode side of the cable facing you when holding the screen up to the unit.

Once you have confirmed the correct positioning of the screen, you may have to use a pair of tweezers to grab the cable when fishing it through the front of the unit to the carrier board.

Once the screen is installed, power up the Omnia.11 and confirm the touchscreen works.

Once the screen is confirmed to be working, you will want to recalibrate it.
