You can buy replacements online. Try www.partstore.com
You can remove the screen yourself, actually, on a lot of these sets, it just means lots of unscrewing to open the cabinet and get it out. If only one layer of your screen is cracked, it will be a lot cheaper. And if only the protective covering is cracked, I'd just throw it away and not worry about replacing it. That sparkly colored effect you see on white colors on the picture? That's the screen protector. Some people remove it for aesthetics.
the outer screen on these units easly replaced. RCA #258797 their called supersheilds.. rca charges about 70 dollars for the item...If it is just that i have seen people just use a clear sheet of plexi. removeing the screens requires removein several torx 20 screw around the outer and remove the frame.. then the clear peice of plexi is attache with serval brackets.
The lenticular and fresnal screen for that unit are sold together under RCA p/n# 258513 and are available from Vance Baldwin for about $260.00 plus shipping.. They make for an oversized item so the shipping is probably 70% of the part cost. www.vancebaldwin.com
my son cracked our screen protector and instead of paying two or three hundred dollars to replace it we had plexy glass cut at Lowes and put velcro striping around the edges and looked as good as the original and has held up great for five years now.
