Your probably looking to get a new head unit, usually not worth fixing unless you can get a used one of the same type. Check ebay. If your good at electronics, you can remove and take it apart yourself to see what exactly is broken on it. Sounds like the screen is trashed. Better yet, get the boyfriend to fix it.

Sometimes these electronic devices are cheaper to change out than buy parts to fix them. Find what a replacement radio will cost. See if e-bay or anyone has a replacement. I'm not sure if the face plate can be removed and replaced or if it is a throw away item. More and more the cost of removal and repair is more that a new replacement. Believe me when I say I find that appalling, but that's the world we live in now. If GM buys one million radios to put in it's cars, how much do they really pay for such a bulk order? Getting a used one, it may work, or it may not depending if it is programed to your computer or not, and if it can even be mated to it. dump the guy, unless he gets you a new radio wrapped in a new Corvette. Then keep him until you find some that respects you.
