If you have one of the Palm models listed above and it has a Samsung Screen with the glass top soldered to the Motherboard of the screen. Then the glass tops we offer will not work. You will need to purchase a complete screen. Check the webpage to see if they are in stock
Visor NEO & PRO WARNING!
If you own a Visor Neo, Platinum or PRO you need to check to see if you have a "HYUNDAI" Screen with the glass top soldered to the Motherboard of the screen. Then the glass tops we offer will not work. You will need to purchase a complete screen. Check the webpage to see if they are in stock. 
Step 1 - Turn the broken screen over and remove the ribbon cable by lifting up the two tabs and pull the ribbon out.

Visor Owners
The back of your screen where the ribbon connects does not have tabs to lift up. The ribbon is pressure fit into the socket. You just gently pull it out of the socket.
Step 2 - Now that you have removed the screen and you have received your new replacement glass top lets fix it! 

To remove the glass top from the screen you will need a very small sharp blade. You need to insert it between the glass and the metal part of the screen. Once it is in there you will work the blade around the screen. 

Keep working the blade around the screen

Step 3 - One thing to watch out for is that you need to get the blade over the screen printed thin metal peice. The new screen glass already has the menu area with it. If you look at the picture you should see the blade at the metal area. 
Step 4 - Now the glass top should be loose enough to remove
Step 5 - Using double sided tape you are going to apply it to the metal rim of the screen We have been getting a lot of emails regarding what tape to use. Most any Scotch thin store brand will work. I happened to use Scotch/3M .472 in X 450 in Double Sided Tape. This is what the new glass will stick to. Make sure to apply it to all sides of the screen (ONLY ON THE METAL EDGE'S)
Step 6 - Now using a blade again cut off the extra tape from the edges. 
Step 7 - Now Take the new glass screen top and lay it evenly on the bottom half.
Make sure the new glass top is snug all the way around the screen 
(dont push to hard). 
Step 8 - Now reattach the ribbon cable on the back of the screen.
Step 9 - Now re-assemble in reverse to complete the glass replacement.
