Finger print scanner - where can I get new hardware?

Ok, so I bought my third Atrix today. This one is for a friend of mine. When I picked it up the only thing that seemed to not work is the finger print scanner. I did everything I could think of software wise to get it to work with no success.

I came to the conclusion that it must be a hardware issue. I tore mine apart and the "new" one swapped my known good scanner in and works with no issues.

I looked on ebay found nothing but housings. Does anyone know where I can find a scanner, or does anyone have a parts phone that they can sell me a good one for a fair price?

I have also tried to search for parts, the only place that seems to sell some parts are globaldirectparts maybe worth sending them an email.

There is a post in these forums with a link to a replacement fingerprint scanner you can by online. A quick search should find it.

EDIT:
Screw it... here is what I found on my first search.

thank you for posting something I can use. I tried searching for a while and all I could find were links to roms that didn't support the scanner.

In my efforts to get the phone rooted and ready for use the volume down button also stopped working for no real reason. So now I am stuck.

I dont know if you read the origonal post. But i swapped the sensor with another to prove it was the issue. I need a new sensor not a software issue.

And cnn.cn didn't have anything listed. I checked already.
