Cracked screen My screen is also cracked. I don't think it's the actual screen, just the plastic covering over the screen. A replacement would be greatly appreciated.

If the plastic cover is cracked but the LCD is fine, the fix is very different. In some ways it's actually harder than replacing the LCD, which is simply connected by a ribbon cable. One challenge for you is that, unlike the LCD, which is available as a replacement part (on Ebay - about $25), there is no direct replacement available for the plastic covering. You will need to pick up another 880 that is being sold for parts and then salvage the plastic screen from there. I'm not sure I can actually describe the replacement procedure to you without pictures but here is the general idea:

First, you need to open the remote so that you can work with the top half. To open the remote, do the following: remove the two screws - one in the battery compartment and one at the top of the remote. Then, using your thumbnail (this is really the best, unless you have a thin, rigid piece of plastic. A part of a credit-card may work), force your nail between the two halves of the ****-shell casing near the bottom of the remote on the left or right side. Once you get your nail (or plastic) into the remote, angle it down at about 45 degrees and simply slide your hand up one side. This will release all the locking tabs very nicely without marring the surface of the remote. Then do the same on the other side. Now, take the bottom of the remote that is holding the logic board and put it aside. You will only need to work on the top half of the ****-shell case. Ok, now looking at the face, there are 4 pieces of silver trim that are locking the plastic screen into the case, two on each side; the piece directly above the Mute button and the Prev button (they look like unmarked softkey buttons), and the two thin elongated pieces at the top on either side. To remove these pieces, you need to turn the top half of the casing over so that you are looking at the underneath at the area of these 4 trim pieces. If you look carefully, you can see that there are very tiny posts covered with glue that are holding in these pieces. You need to forcefully, but carefully scrape the glue off and try to push the trim pieces out from the back. Try to do this is carefully as possible, since the surrounding plastic is delicate. Once you pop these pieces off, turn the top half back right-side up. Now the only thing holding the screen down is a kind of rubber cement around the perimeter. To remove your cracked screen, you can pull it off from the bottom without worrying too much. However, be very careful when trying to get your replacement screen off of the salvage remote! The screen must be pried up gently and slowly from the bottom. If you use too much force, you risk cracking the screen as you pry it up. If you wind up scraping some of the black paint on the screen's perimeter, you can use a permenent marker to color it. Back on your good remote, remove as much of the cement as you can and lay down some double-stick tape (a glue stick may work also) and lay the new screen down so it is aligned perfectly in the space. Then attach the trim pieces and use some epoxy on the underside to affix them in place. Re-assemble your remote and it should be as good as new. Good Luck!

    For some reason the word 'clamshell' was replaced with '****-shell' when this post went live. Sorry for any confusion!

    The screen looks cracked and multi colored but the actual glass isnt broken or cracked

    Your LCD/monitor is cracked from the inside. There are several things that can cause a screen to crack from the inside. The two most common are pressure on the screen or dropping the machine. Sorry, but it is irreparable. You need to buy a replacement.

    Because this was 3 years ago It would now be cheaper to just replace the unit altogether and you would be alto happier let alone you would have a SMART TV as well.

    That really sounds like the LCD screen is cracked. The front will not feel cracked because of a clear plastic cover sheet but behind it is the LCD panel. The liquid you see is part of the screen leaking. The LCD actually means "liquid crystal display" and that is what you are seeing leak out between the cracks in the panel. You will need to have the panel replaced to clear the problem. You can get the panels from Ebay if you want to do the repair yourself. This type of repair is not covered under the Acer warranty. If you have any questions just use the email address below.

    A cracked screen will cost you, but maybe not as much as you think. Instead of replacing the whole , you can spend about $300 and replace the screen yourself. All you need is a small screwdriver.

    1)Turn off the power to your screen and unplug all cables connected to it.
    2)Remove the battery, if one is installed.
    3)Locate the covered screws around the cracked screen. Remove the rubber/plastic covers, then unscrew the screws.
    4)Gently remove the plastic frame around the cracked screen and set it aside.
    5)Disconnect any power cords or cables going into the LCD screen.
    6)Remove the cracked screen and slide the new screen into place. Replace any tape or plastic fasteners that hold it in place.
    7)Reconnect all internal cords to the screen.
    8)Screw in the frame and replace all the screw covers.
    9)Reconnect the power supply and all external cables to the LCD screen and switch it on.

    It seems that inside my psp 2001 screen is cracked but it's inside

    The outside part that you can touch is just a plastic cover to protect the screen. The inside is actually where the lcd screen is. If the screen looks cracked then it most likely is. Its gonna be $89 to send your psp in to sony, call 1-800-345-7669 if thats what you wanna do.

    Broken / Cracked display

    Is it just the plastic cover over the display? I think that would be a little easier to find an replace than the whole display would. Garmin does stock alot of parts for their units. Unfortunatly, alot of the small electronics thats built today is disposable. The components are all small surface mount stuff packed in on very small double sided pc boards....this is very hard, timely and expensive to track a problem. For that reason alot of manufacturers do not supply parts for certain models. This MIGHT make the actual display harder to find..... but in your case its just the display cover.... the odds are good you will find one. Check at the Garmin website...they will have lists of certified repair shops with access to parts.
