It's broken then?
If you could say what the damage is (by taking it apart) it would help, if you're asking how to fix it.

If you're comfortable taking gadgets apart carefully and/or following youtube instructions to reassemble it, most consumer electronics can be at least diagnosed this way.

As for replacement parts, I recommend dealextreme or ebay - for a few dollars you can get replacement screens, digitizers, buttons, cases, hinges, ports, etc. You may need to solder stuff to fix it though.
