Replacing a screen is fairly easy, usually you will see some rubber bumpers at each corner of the screen, removed those and that will expose the screws, then you will need to gently pry apard the front bezzel from the back shell. after that you will need to remove any screws holding the LCD in place. Locate the model of the screen and find on on ebay or through your laptop manufacter. I just picked up a 15.4" lcd for a toshiba on ebay for 80$ with a 6 months warrenty.
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 was able to take apart a VX8350 I have with a broken screen. I don't see any way to replace just the hinges with replacing the whole top part of the phone including the screen. The ribbon cable from the screen runs through the hinge part into the main assembly of the phone. It appears the cable can't be removed without cutting it.
