I just picked up this system, and the screen is practically unusable.  Does
anyone know if there is a way to repair this kind of damage on the old LCD
screens. It doesn't appear to be cracked at all.  If it is unable to be
repaired, would anyone know where I could get a replacement display (if
possible at all)

Also, the printer apparently runs off an internal (read as non-replaceable)
ni-cad battery. I'm not sure if it needs replacing or not at this point,
I'm going to try and let it charge for 15hrs (per the manual) and see if it
functions at all then. Otherwise I will probably have to take it apart and
try to get the battery stats and find/make a replacement.

Normal Person: Hey, it seems that you know a lot.
Geek: To be honest, it's due to all the surfing I do.
Normal Person: So you go surfing?
Normal Person: But I don't think that has anything to do with knowing a
Geek: I think that's wrong on a fundamental level.
Normal Person: Huh? Huh? What?
