    Ive been looking for LCD replacement for my Dell Venue 10 5050. However, it seems these screens are not available as of January of 2016. Are there any other models that would work as a replacement? Or does anyone know if Dell will ever start selling replacement parts for Venue 10 5050? Thank for your answer in advance

      I just purchased a Dell venue 10 5050 8gb tablet off eBay, that had some internal issues, then used this website’s tutorial for the 10 pro to exchange the “damaged” tablet screen with my own. Everything in this tutorial was the exact same as the pro. Doesn’t matter the model numbers are different. This tutorial lined up perfectly with my Dell Venue 5050 10.1 NON-pro, android tablet. Since the pro screens are so much easier to find; I will be buying one of those, and putting it on the newest tab that has no real issues that I could find.
