Ask on Chat! 

it's a sealed module so probably difficult to source elsewhere!

I asked Prusa this question a couple of weeks ago.

They told me that the LCD isn't shown in the shop because they have to go out and find one that's compatible with your particular printer. There are, apparently, different versions of the LCD and the controller board, and when you order the LCD they have to try and find one for sale that will work with your printer.

If I'm honest, I wasn't impressed. I understand that the LCD is a commodity item, but I do feel that they should keep a stock of spares that are known to be compatible and to offer good UV performance. There's at least one report here on the forum of someone who experienced severe light leakage problems after replacing the LCD, which were cured by replacing it again.

If you need a new LCD, contact Prusa support directly (I suggest via live chat) and have the serial number of your printer handy.

I have the same problem as javcar, but my lcd at the end died at all after about 300 printhours-  I asked on live chat Prusa support and result is:

print lcd "live" is approx 500 hours and after that it must be changed , but sometimes it must be changed after 250 h. Isn´t it nice?

Login with your Prusa account. I found this original replacement for the SL1:

 About a month ago I started noticing holes in the same spots in my prints.  After running some tests I contacted support and found that my LCD needed to be replaced — this was after 691 hours on the UV LED array.  I ordered a new one with the calibrator, but it was on back order.  I knew how long Prusa back orders can be (>1 year for a MMU2) so after some research I found on Amazon an Elegoo Mars Pro 2.2k 5” LCD screen that looked very similar to the SL1 without the aluminum frame.  After I ordered and received this screen, I broke the LCD screen and glass plate below it from my old LCD print display.  Then after several designs and prints on my MK3S I made a frame of PETG which placed the Elegoo LCD in the correct position in the old aluminum frame (I can send anyone the file for it).  I silicone glued all together (same as the original SL1 LCD is silicone glued).  This rebuilt display assembled in the printer the same as the original and has been working well.  Shortly after I installed it, the back ordered LCD screen and calibrator arrived from Prusa (surprise! surprise!).  I put that LCD screen in storage and used the calibrator as instructed to calibrate the Elegoo screen.  All is going well so far.  The Elegoo screen is reinforced but certainly not as strong as the Prusa one.  My next question is:  Is there a way to know how long I have printed on this LCD display?  I can subtract 691 from the total hours on the LED array but it seems there should be a better way — a direct way to show print hours from the time a LCD display was installed.
