Ricoh GR replacement parts

So recently I discovered while reviewing some pics, I had dust on the sensor of my ricoh GR.
I am leaving town at the end of the month and didn't want to go through the hassle of sending it out and not have it back in time.
So I decided to clean my sensor my self, I had confidence in my ability to clean my camera following the instructions i saw here. After about 25 nerve frying minutes my camera was cleaned, found the speck of whatever it was that was on the glass in front of the sensor, not the sensor itself. put the camera back together. Flawless! I thought. Turned on my camera. LCD screen was cracked. probably from when i was trying to pop the back cover back on. Still usable but distracting and I want it replaced!
Anyone know where I can order this part for the GR to replace it myself?

I have never handled a GR3 or GR4, but would a GR3 or 4 screen work for this? the connection on the GR3 replacement screen looks very similar to the GR.

No, as those screens have less than half the resolution. Ricoh USA doesn't sell parts directly to consumers. You will most likely have to send the camera in if you can't find one "for parts" online.

Bummer. I contacted Ricoh repair customer service they say repairs can be done at precision camera in connecticut. $166 flat fee. 10 business days plus shipping time. aargh going to costa rica on the 28th.

But I would rather have the cracked screen than the dust on the sensor.

Heading home from a trip and took the GR instead of the big rig - amazingly easy to move around and snap anything from candids to landscapes.

I say just take the trip w cracked screen...details!!!

Have a look on ebay, there's currently one offer for a GR screen, shipping from China for something like $18 in total. That might be an alternative.

I replaced a cracked screen on my Panasonic FX35 a little while ago, after I fell on it. I got it shipped from China, too. Unfortunately, I didn't realise you had to push in the connecter really tightly (tighter than I thought I would need to/should do) and I had a white screen of death for a few years. I tried this year again, and now that it works I passed it on to my niece. So if you get a white screen, keep trying.
