Apple will repair it, for a hefty price tag, or you can buy the parts of eBay and do it yourself, which is the MUCH cheaper route. I think a lot of people around HoFo have done it, I don't know about around here, but that may be a good source of info too. I'm pretty sure youtube has video tutorials on how to do it as well that may be pretty helpful.

I tried and failed to repair it. The instructions / videos provided by the site are crap and lead you to believe it's easier than it is.

Watch the videos below of these guys following the other videos and showing what they do. If you still want to do it after watching these, the best of luck to you. :)

Agreed, if you don't know what you are doing or in the least bit hesitant to do it yourself, don't do it...
