Can I replace a broken printer display panel?

I have a WF-2530 printer and the display is broken. Is it possible to get spares and is it possible for me to repair it myself?

If not would it be as cheap to buy a new printer than have it repaired professionally?

Depending on what you want your printer to do (in terms of features) I'd guess buying a new one may well be the cheaper option. With a decent printer available for £50 or so, it would be less than paying a guy for an hour or two's labour at £30-40/hour plus parts. These days, things just aren't made to be repaired. It looks like your printer was only £60 or so in the first place.
