You need a replacement screen.
You can find a broken M407 with a good LCD on Ebay for pretty cheap. (I picked up one for $20 shipped).
From there, it's a matter of taking out the 6 screws (very small Phillips screwdriver) that hold the camera housing on, the 2 screws that secure the LCD retaining ring on, pulling the LCD out of its mount, and gently pulling the LCD ribbon down and out of the white connector (mounted on the camera's board).
Reverse to reassemble.
Gentleness and patience is key, you're dealing with sensitive electronics here.
Even someone with little mechanical aptitude can do it, I'd say 30 mins tops to swap screens out of 2 cameras.
Before you buy an Ebay camera, try taking yours apart first to make sure you can do it, or find a family member or friend who's up to the task.
These cameras are not worth that much now. It's not worth paying a shop to do it. If you don't get a deal on an Ebay parts camera and do it yourself, you should invest in a new camera.

Cracked screen

Hey Britanny,

once your screen is cracked, it's time to buy a new TV set. The cost to replace the screen will exceed the value of your set. Although the screen is cracked, it still has some value. List it on your local Craigslist and someone will buy it for parts. If this helps please sign my guestbook

G1 screen is cracked

Cracked LCD screens are very common.They're just by nature,easy to crack. I would say,if your screen is usable ,and not particulary irritating,then just leave it as it is.But if you want a new screen and you want to know about repairing it, I can help you.

Card is unformatted

If you have the HP M407, the maximum capacity sd card it can use is a 1gb. I had the same problem and a 1gb card solved the problem. Hope this helps.

Cracked screen

I've had my enV for about a year, now. within the first month, I cracked its screen. I have both insurance and a warranty for it, but Verizon is unimpressed-- they suggested that I either purchase a new model, or perhaps buy the enV 2. it's whatever.
