    You have to replace the entire screen. Look up the going rate for a new screen and throw in ~$50-100 for labor.

    I had mine replaced but apple covered it for free. I asked the going cost on the replacement of the unit. Plan on spending at the max $550.00

    Through Apple a glossy clamshell display (15") (the whole thing) is $453.41. The cost of a hardware repair-level 1 is $39.00. The total, without tax, is this $492.41.


    If you are lucky, they may replace it for free- though I think for that to be a viable option you still need to have Apple care covering it.


    I'm really sorry about your screen.

    If you're not the least bit technical I'm not sure I would do it. Looks pretty involved. If you do though, make sure you wear some dust free, lint free gloves. Getting it back together only to find a fingerprint on the inside would be a real downer.

    Only you know if your capable, just read the instructions thoroughly before ordering any parts to make sure you're comfortable and if at any point you think you're in over your head STOP!

    Good Luck if you attempt this, I`m reasonably competent at minor repairs but this does look a fairly involved job.
    Post back with your results if you attempt it and ,as was said above, if you start to get worried then stop and seek expert help.
