Broken LCD on 24" Dell Monitor

My 24" LCD monitor fell over and the LCD cracked. I've contacted Dell and of course it's not under warranty. They don't even offer the option for repair. So, I was wondering if anyone knows of a repair company that can repair this monitor? I've called several and all of them say they can't get the part. Any help would be appreciated.

Unfortunately, I'd bet the replacement LCD panel would be almost as expensive as a new monitor.

Agreed. Factoring in the cost of parts and labour, not to mention the time it would even take to have a repair shop order the part, wait for the part, receive the part and install the part, you've got to figure that it'd be cheaper and easier to get a new display.

At the very least your new LCD would have a full warranty and you could get it faster than if you were to take your old one in for repairs.

Find the same model on ebay with a broken backlight or similar, and crack out the soldering iron!
