Just got this one from eBay for about 66$ - I cracked my screen too, I'm going to replace it tomorrow, if you have any of the same luck I have had trying to find a decent bargain, this might be your best bet. Good luck.
The set needs a new LCD if it looks cracked and swirly, the colors all run together in the area of the crack don't they! If it is cracked it can't be fixed. you can replace the lcd but I am not sure if a warranty will cover a cracked screen or not. You will need to contact LG and be very nice to them and see if they will honer the warranty on this.
Here is the response that I got from Verizon customer service today via e-mail. I, too, have the broken hinge on a new LG VX8350:
"According to our records a limited number of LG VX8350 devices may
exhibit a cracked hinge or stress cracks on the front housing from
normal operation. LG determined hinge / stress cracking is due to a
production issue with the hinge. LG has implemented corrective action
to resolve issue in future production and devices repaired by LG."
They are replacing the phone with a certified LG. All in all, I am very pleased with their commitment to customer service. I would suggest contacting Verizon directly and letting them know that you are aware of the hinge problems.
I have seen lots of LCD Screens cracked or broken on an LG Shine. A replacement screen can be bought for around $20 from Ebay. And the process of replacing it yourself if rather simple. All you need are a small philips screwdriver and a plastic tab (guitar pick) or a fingernail.
Here are two links that will help you out. The first is a guide that will show you step by step how it's done. And the second is a good link for buying replacement LCD Screens to replace your broken one.
