Hi there,

Could someone help me determine if my sons 10 Viking Pro is a goner or not, please?

He dropped the tablet a while back and now when he turns it on half the screen is black (the left side) and the right side flickers\dances about.

I am not sure how to explain this but it's not the outer screen that is "cracked". I think on a PC/laptop monitor it is called the back screen... maybe? I don't know monitor parts well enough to even start researching.

I have attached an image below.


Any help would be truly appreciated.

Thank you,
Donna :)

It definitely got a spider web going on there.... if the outer glass isn't feeling like its cracked, then its the inside panel that is damaged and broken. You could try and get a replacement screen assembly and take it apart and replace it. So its broken, but probably not so far broken to not be fixable. Just depends if you want to take it apart and try and find replacement parts.
