Exclamation Cracked Amoled

Hello, I own a Samsung Galaxy Precedent, given by a friend, his story is that he dropped it from a couch and now the screen is mostly all black when you turn it on (aside from the "inside" crack on the upper right corner). The screen is fine, nothing cracked physically, but underneath the screen is where the problem is. Perhaps it is the amoled that is cracked? I believe so.
Anyways, does anybody know a fix for this? Anywhere I can take it? Anything I can replace the amoled or whatever they call it underneath the screen?
Anything cheap I'm up for... and thanks in advanced!

P.S. There was no warranty put on this, makes things a little hard I know but looking for a fix for this seems impossible for me. I have searched all over the internet.

Any ideas?

The glass isn't the display, it's a piece of (really tough) glass that protects the display. What you have is a broken display. (It doesn't crack like glass just from dropping it.) You have to replace the display.

I haven't seen a lot lot of hardware tutorials regarding the Precedent. Given that it's $150 off contract I'd be very suprised if there was a fix that didn't cost less than just replacing the whole thing. At the end of the day it's a pretty disposable piece of hardware.

I see, well thank you for the input. I figured as much this would happen so I'm not surprised but again, thank you.

With some searching I was able to find a Display for the Prevail, as far as I know it should work in the Precedent too but I would double check that:

New OEM Samsung Galaxy Prevail M820 LCD Display Screen Replacement Parts Repair | eBay

Looks like the run about $50

Ah, Pure, well thank you very much. I back your research up by looking it up myself actually and found out that the Prevail and the Precedent are just about similar in every way. That is a huge save for $100 and well worth to try this. I appreciate your help

Not a problem, you should try and video tape it when you change the display. It may be helpful to others wanting to do the same thing.

Well ... it's actually only a savings of $80 (Walmart.com: Straight Talk Samsung Galaxy Precedent Android Prepaid Smartphone: Cell Phones) but it is a saving. (And if you make a video, it might help some people who have to get into the phone for other reasons.)
