Replacement screen for H4n not available anywhere?

Does anyone have any outlet for getting replacement screens for Zoom H4n recorders? We've been scouring the internet with no luck. The US distributor basically told us they weren't selling parts and to buy an H4n Pro (they did offer a discount on it). I'd rather just buy a $20 screen and swap it back in, thanks.

You could take it apart and note the assembly number and other identifiers on the LCD panel. Then do a search on these as components can show up outside the normal supplier sources. Or they sourced a generic screen to save money.

Looks like a fun project ...

Oh we took them apart... :)
We found a very similar screen that may or may not work. It's only $5 so I'm going to order a couple and test them.

Zoom has to be one of the least useful companies I've dealt with.
