All right, I did a couple of searches and didn't find anything that matched my situation: My 5GB iPod's display screen is broken. The "broken calculator" effect is evident at the bottom and (more so) the left. I am only able to see a little of the upper right part of the display when the iPod is on.

Question 1: How can I fix/replace this? (well after warranty)

Also, I tried to look for the broken iPod site, where some guy was willing to pay for broken iPods, but I couldn't find the one that I had in mind. (The site was posted back either here, on iPodLounge, or both, in early-mid 2003.) So if I can't have my screen repaired easily,

Question 2: Who can I take my "broken" iPod to for cash? (not sure if I want to do that at the moment)

Both options (iPod repair site and possibly selling iPod to magid in the future) in consideration. eBay auction is not because of weekend plans...I have to be out of the house almost all weekend.

BTW: I don't have AppleCare on my iPod.
