Playbook LCD needed. Where can I purchase one?

I have a Playbook with a broken LCD screen. The touch screen is fine so I am just looking to get a replacement LCD. Can anyone point me in the right direction?

Re: Playbook LCD needed. Where can I purchase one?

You're probably new to gadgets... You need to ditch it and buy a new one.

 

Even if you could get a replacement part, the price would be a lot more than a complete new unit...

 

Check how you paid for it, you may have a credit card that offers an extended warranty.

 

Good luck.

Re: Playbook LCD needed. Where can I purchase one?

Actually I have been repairing "gadgets", Phones, Computers, Plasma and LCD TV's and monitors and basically any other broken piece of electronics that have graced my presence for about 25 years and I have found an LCD on a classified site but it is the whole assembly.

 

Screen Assembly:
 
LCD Screen
Digitizer
Bezel
Front Camera
Rear Camera
Headphone Jack

and that is for $90 but I was hoping to just replace the cracked LCD and perhaps save a bit of dough. So, If anybody knows of a web site or supplier of Playbook parts I would appreciate any lead you could supply me. Thanks..

Or.. If someone on here is just doing what miatared suggested and are ditching their broken Playbook, drop me a line and perhaps I could cover the shipping to me if you would not mind.. Thanks again.

Sorry, but the part I was seeking was the "LCD" not the digitizer.

Re: Playbook LCD needed. Where can I purchase one?

Well, at $199 for a new 16 GiG model and a 32 Gig for $249, I can't see the logic of replacing an LCD at those prices...

 

That was my thinking.

 

If you think it's worth it, good for you my friend.
