    Hey folks - a friend to whom I sold my old Jornada 568 accidentally busted the screen (sat on it <g>). Does anyone know an aftermarket source of screen replacements? HP wants to charge $379! :confused:

    Thanks!

    You're outta luck bud. HP doesn't sell their screens to any third party companies (I asked PPCTechs). Strange though, the HP rep I called said the repair goes from 199-219 USD. Maybe she didn't quote me on the possibility of the touchscreen breaking too....

    Yeah - I spoke with PPCTechs and they echoed what you said. :-(

    If anyone has a dead Jornada 56x, my friend would likely buy it. Thanks!

    Actually, I now have a J568 that everything works fine, except it goes through batteries very quickly.

    I was going to put it on ebay, but maybe your friend would like to buy it instead?

    Send me an email if you're interested.
