You may be more sympathetically disposed to this kind of work than me, so maybe I'm being a bit of a scare-monger.
The replacement is tricky in the way that electronics often are. There are multiple connections which are very delicate, and I found that I needed several extra hands to hold the various parts to prevent dropping and stretching (breaking) the flexible tape connectors (one for the screen and one for the bezel). Access to the plug connections for these is under a circuit board, and can only be reached once the board is removed from the chassis, which necessitates releasing the strain relief for the main screen, which is very precarious. With care, I got it done, and I used masking tape as extra hands. It did require self restraint and some choice golf language to be successful.
I hope (should you need to do it) that its goes as well as mine did. The main thing is that you don't need to pay $3,600 for a new unit, which is a big relief. My local shop wanted $75 for labor, which would be worth it, if it prevents one doing further damage (which I narrowly avoided). I'll put it this way: if I knew then what I know now, I'd pay the service center to do it to reduce stress and risk for me. If you are masochistic, and like risking $3,600 for a $100 repair, or just like new and educating experiences, go for it. If you like boring, predictable and stress free activities, pay the man for what he's good at.
