    You can probably find one on eBay but replacing the screen is very Involved and requires disassembling most of the internal components, which are EXTREMELY delicate. You can swap it for a factory refurbished unit at Apple for around $200.

    Understand that all chances of Apple even looking at after a swap out if obvious are nothing. I would recommend consulting a Genius Bar where a brand new iPod will replace it for an OOW cost.
