Correct, warranty doesn’t cover cracked screens :/

If you’re lucky, you might find one on eBay from a bricked player. If you can not find one, in most cases it’s not worth the price of repair when comparing to a new player. Although it doesn’t hurt to ask Samsung and let us know.

There is a Samsung Repair centre that replaces screens at very reasonable charges.. do a search, it's mentioned in a similar cracked or broken screen post here.

The screen of my T10 is also broken and I searched on the Internet how to replace it at low cost.
First, I found this video on Youtube that explains how to disassemble the T10.
Then I searched for a new LCD, and all what I found are very expensive spare parts, here (71.49 £) or here (-> search by model : t10. The price they gave me is 150 AU$).
I asked to Samsung, but they sent me to a subcontractor who asks me to pay 15€, just for repair estimate, and i do not want to pay in advance, because if the estimate is too high, I prefer to buy a new T10 !

Any idea on where to find a cheap LCD for T10 ?

Thanks

Thank you very much, scuba, you're my savior .
But...I saw this post already, and the address mentioned here is in Germany.
And there is a little mistake : the company is not Tüv Süd, but Tvs Süd, and the site is in german only.
I'm looking for something more ...english-friendly.

I did send my T10 to TVS but they send it back with remark no spare part available!!
If someone knows a replacement or a address where i can get a display please post here.
I love my t10, but i 'm bored to hear always the same songs
