My Asus Vivobook (15.6 inch screen) laptop had a broken digitizer that needed replacing. I took it apart and removed the digitizer from the the bezel. The tape that was holding it on had a lot of glass and glass dust on it so I removed it and replaced it with double sided tape made for this purpose, and seated my new digitizer, but it doesn't want to remain stuck. Is there also an adhesive made for this purpose? Thanks for reading!

3M brand two sided tape is the best out there. It is a bit expensive though but has a long lasting hold.

 

I know your only looking for enough tape length to tape the digitizer in place, but a roll of it can come in handy for other repairs or projects.

 

Here's a link to amazon for this type of tape. http://www.amazon.com/3M-Tape-5952-Multiple-Sizes/dp/B00K2N2HR4

 

Some may suggest glue or adhesives, but to me that just makes a sticky mess.

MrBruce1959, that looks a little thick. Have you ever used it? It looks like if I used this, the glass would maybe stick up higher than the bezel edge.

JB Plastic Weld has been rated one of the better plastic bonding solutions available.

No, the bezel that holds the digitizer (touch screen). If the touch screen, or digitizer, isn't solidly adhered to the bezel, it will stick out

@ trickshot, there are a variety widths and thicknesses of 3M tape, choose the one that best fits your situation.

Oh...and avoid liquid glues or adhesives including gorilla glue.

 

Trust me on that warning.

can anyone link me a pic as to what we're talking about?  Perhaps clear silicone adhesive would be good too?  Not to dash Bruce's suggestion.. I am just trying to provide alternatives if the stickytape doesn't work well.

Hi, yeah bleeping.

 

The reason I'd advise against any liquid adhesives is because if ever, there comes the time to remove a device that is glued into place with such, that extraction could cause considerable damage to the parts, including the part we are not replacing.

 

Double adhesive tape is better because that is what held the original part in place.

 

Trickshot I realize you have the Asus Vivobook but which model number is it?  I want to see if there is an exploded view available on the web.

 

Bruce.

There are some extremely thin double back tapes that are made for rear view mirror mounts on glass.  The space between the surface element and the digitizer panel needs to be very small or it becomes intermittent.  Number one cause of failure - - frustrated poking damages the point or pierces the plastic membrane.
