The LCD connects to the main PCB with a ribbon connector. The LCD itself has a flexible PCB with a couple of components on, but it does seem to be unrepairable without specialist tools.
If Logitech would sell the display as a spare part, lots of people would then not have to buy replacement remotes!!.
I bought another LCD from eBay for $26.00 shipped to the house. I replaced it tonight and everything is functioning properly again. I am thinking about wrapping the remote in bubble wrap. LOL.
Thanks to all those that replied to my post. I appreciate the help and even the criticism. Even though I am still a little peeved with Logitech, I realize that it was unrealistic of me to demand a new remote that far out of warranty. I still think it is a very fragile device but that is the case with a lot of electronics and I need to take more care with this item.
This is a good forum and I appreciate having a place to come to and vent some, but more importantly, to find valuable technical advice from those more experienced than myself.
Thank you all very much,
