My advice is if the screen broke and does not display a thing. It's better to buy a new one. Because replacement parts are always more expensive plus installation. the only place to do that kind of work is at the company itself. If it's 1gb model it only costs $50USD. i suggest you rebuy it or get better cheaper model!
While the LCD display for many MP3 players may be replaceable, in some cases the availability and cost of doing so might make repairs uneconomical.
I would first suggest checking with the manufacturer of the MP3 player (SanDisk) to see if the screen is sold as an individual component or as part of an assembly - this can often give you a good idea of how much repairs may cost, before any labor charges are factored in. Keep in mind that not all manufacturers may offer replacement parts for their LCD screens if the model has been discontinued or is currently subject to a recall.
Once you've gotten a good idea how much replacement parts may cost, you may wish to then speak with your local repair facility for more information regarding any potential installation charges.
If you are still unsure how to proceed, remember that you can always bring your MP3 player into a Geek Squad® agent at your local Best Buy™ store for further assistance.
Broken screens, unfortunately, are not being replaced by the manufacturer. You will have to replace the player outright. If the screen ALONE is damaged, you can buy a broken version (as long as the breakage is not in the screen), and you can superglue a screen back on - note: glue can damage other parts - doesn't look pretty. The problem is that, usually, it is not JUST the screen that is broken - an internal component is damaged as well. It is not cost-effective for the Mp3 manufacturer's to repair this kind of damage, so they just offer replacements. Sorry!
