Which, of course, is the problem. If a screen is +US$80, plus 
shipping, plus time there and back, and it's not the only problem, and 

Guess I have to figure out how much aggravation I'm willing to put up 
with to save x $.

It's dropped before, multiple times. Guess the drop onto cold sidewalk 
must have schmucked it just the right way this time.

A casual web search revealed the 680 screens appear to be problems. 
Hasn't been my experience, and least not until now.
