is the actual screen inside scratched or is the outer phone housing screen cover scratched? There is a difference. The actual LCD screen is inside the phone housing and is protected by the phones housing. If the actual LCD screen somehow was scratched it can be replaced very easily and usually inexpensively. Try Ebay for the LCD. If the phones outer clear housing is scratched you can also replace the housing either by purchasing the same phone used and using its housing or some "dummy" phones can be used for there housings also. If the scratch is not really bad I have used rubbing compound to remove fine scratches, good luck!
you have acted correctly up to this point.Now free the button pads on both sides from were they are stuck down they are attached to the main board so be gentle you only need to move them off the plastic boards they are fixed to.Now remove the grey square of tape in the battery compartment and unplug the little black wire from the main board it just lifts off. now lift up the main board from the battery compartment end and as you lift it a plug in flex will detach itself turn the main board up at an angle and you will see the flex attachment underneath.Take the green plastic off and flick the hinge to remove the flex,it is soldered on both sides like a lot of samsungs but if your replacing the flex just tear it and work on it when the board is removed.This next part is where you can go realy wrong ignore all the screws that you can see open the slide of the phone and remove the covers that conceal the 2 screws at the top of the phone remove them now with the slide fully open you will see 2 holes at the bottom of either side of the slide look in and you will see 2 screws that hold the bottom of the screen cover remove them.now the slide section will easily be removed from the screen section you may have to operate the slide slightly to allow the flex to exit then you have easy access to the flex on the screen attachment .Rebuild in reverse taking note on how the flex is bent as its crucial to the slide operating smoothly
The same thing has happened to my D840. Very annoying as ive only had it 5 months. After a bit of research and asking around, ive found out that this is a very common fault with these phones. The ribbon inside which connects the screen to the main body of the phone is damaged due to sliding the phone open and closed. Surely they should sort this problem out if the main feature of the phone is to slide it open. Crap.
