LCD replacement

Ok so my camera was on one of those small six inch tripods. It was sitting on a shelf where I was making video blogs. It was a pretty simple setup and worked well. Only it got bumped and fell off the shelf. Landed on the ground, and now the LCD is cracked and mostly unreadable. I've been subsiding on AUTO, Video, and viewfinder. But I want to fix this. Has anyone replaced their own LCD? How much did you pay for the replacement part? Did you buy it from Ebay or Pentax directly? How hard was the repair? Taking things apart isn't new to me, I've replaced a couple LCD digitizers on cellphones.

I have money to buy parts. I just want people's experiences with this issue.

I see DHCamera offer replacement screens on Fleebay. the whole service or DIY.
I know I would be looking at getting a Pentax repair center to quote first. But good luck with whatever you choose.

Ouch.
United Camera replaced my K5 screen for under $120. If you have a weather proof body, you might want someone with insurance rip it open...
I think there were a few other suggestions here: https://www.pentaxforums.com/forums/115-pentax-k-5/211768-sad-sad-day.html

Yes I think you are right, I will contact United Camera and ship my K50 out. 120 is a good deal I think. I appreciate the advice!
