Default Smartcraft SC1000 Gauges LCD black

I have the SC 1000 gauges on my 2007 Laguna Bay 190. Both of the LCD's on the gauges are are blackened now from heat and sun damage and completely un-readable. (I think) My navy blue boat cover is to blame. I am trying to find out is there any way to repair the gauge by replacing the LCD screen inside. Has anyone had any success sending these to anyone for repair? Marine Max wants $800 for the set. Mercury part numbers are 79-879899 and 79-879897. I know VDO made them. I have an email in to them to ask. I don't really want to dish out $800 bucks right now on new gauges. I have thought about buying eBay units but not sure which ones are compatible,

As far as I know these are sealed units with no repair possible. You should be able to find replacements on eBay, Great Lakes Skipper, Flounder Pounder Marine for much less. These outlets buy a lot of excess inventory from the various boat manufacturers.
