Can the front black frame be removed

Fri Dec 11, 2015 12:50 pm

I'm looking for at 7" display for my pi and this would be perfect except for the black framed front. Can this front be removed?

No. It's a single piece of glass.

Hello

In case you are looking for a high resolution 7 inch display with 1024x600 pixels without touch screen than

you can see if below option can meet your need

The front glass is not the touchscreen, it is a decorative frame. The touch glass is behind that glass, but not at the center. If you want to try that you can cut the front glass a bit smaller. Just holding a ruler near the glass I'd say you could cut off like 4 and 11mm at the long axis, and 6 and 2mm at the small axis. So the size could re reduced from 194x110mm to 179x102mm with the usable display off-center.

Oh, and if you don't need touch: Some people have complained the glue coming off. You could try with moderate heat (like 50°C) and gentle pulling for some hours or some days to remove the front glass, the touch glass, or both.
