Place I worked before would sometimes get screens off of eBay. Replacing them
is dead-simple. Pop the frame off the front of the screen (probably has
screws, often hidden behind those little rubber things), lift the frame out
and disconnect the inverter from it (there's a cable). Then just do it in
reverse with the new screen.
