Where to get new screen?

Thanks! This guide is missing some steps and details once you open it up, but it was enough for me to get the job done. Thank you.

Once inside be super careful with the ribbon cables. One slides out the side and the cable labeled “Main” pops off the top. At first I thought I broke the Main cable. You’ll need to unhood the main cable from the frame before you can detach the LCD… and the LCD is glued on airtight to the articulating frame.

I ordered a new replacement LCD on ebay from S. Korea. Good luck to anyone else who has to do this. I killed my screen after a couple heavy rain storms.
