I used this (embedded below) YouTube to replace my K3 screen. Screen was $40/£25 delivered to my door (albeit slow shipment from China).



No issues in doing it in about 35 minutes including rectifying the schoolboy error of not removing the protective plastic from the display before mounting it... DOH!

Watch out though - the "naked" display is only 0.045" thick (1.14mm) and is extremely fragile. Ham-fisted best avoid (or contract it out )

Hi! My dad just broke his K3's screen...
Could you recommend the seller for your replacement screen?
Thanks!

I'm absolutely not recommending any particular seller over another - but I found the required part on www.aliexpress.com - saw no advantage or disadvantage of any particular seller there over another except on the basis of cost - the one I chose took 15 days elapsed to get to me.

Update: I bought a repacement screen (also got here in 15 days), installed it (using a youtube video) and it worked!
Thanks for the advice everyone.
