You can replace the screen. It is stuck to the main board, so you must 
be very gentle when you remove it and make sure you disconnect the 
ribbon cable that connects it to the main board before you try to remove 
the screen.

As for spares, you can get them on ebay


I have had no dealings with this seller, I just happened to notice that 
he was selling replacement screens for the FreeRunner.
