Can you replace Nook st/gl screen with nook st without gl?

I have a Nook Simple Touch with GlowLight with some holes showing. I also have a Nook Simple Touch with NO Glowlight. I would like to find out if the screens will interchange. Just the screens as the other case parts are different.

Thank you

Steve

I was wondering the same thing and my disclaimer is that I have not tried this however based on my research it is possible to switch screens. But if you were to swap a st/gl screen with a st screen without glowlight, the glowlight feature would be gone as it is integrated into the the screen. Based on the notes from the ifixit tare-down it is a strip of LED lights across the top and is integrated into the screen. Now whether or not it is possible to move the LEDs is another question, my answer would be no as the glowlight feature needs the special coated screen to diffuse the light across the whole screen.

UPDATE: the LED Strip at the top of the st/gl screen can be removed. The plastic that diffused the light across the screen finally cracked on mine. I had nothing to loose so pealed it back along with the LED strip and cleaned off the adhesive on the screen, I could have left it as is without the LED as it was only the plastic that was cracked on my screen. I was able to buy some thin acrylic plastic sheets and cut it to the same size as the one I removed. attached the LED strip to the top and installed it back on my screen. I have not determined what to use to reattach it to the screen but it works.

I have both st and stgl. Yes I have replaced gl screen with non-gl screen and it functioned nicely. Be very careful though as everything is taped down and quite fragile. Hope it works for you. You simply won't have a place to connect the tiny ribbon cable for the screen lights.

When I replaced my GL screen with a screen from a ST, the screen worked great, EXCEPT it didn't glow anymore.
