Yes, I got my T6i about 5 months ago with 2 lenses for $550. Well then for 10-80 dollars give it a shot. Hopefully, it will go well and if not you can still sell it "as-is". I think the new T7's are going for around 700 now. From the posts I have seen the focus screen is just a remove and replace operation, no mention of calibration issues.

"I paid $700 for it new. So putting another $300 in it isnt worth the price, considering they are going for around $500 now."
What you paid for the camera originally is not relevant. Yours is broke so that factor is done. You can't replace it for $300 dollars today most likely, "considering they are going for around $500 now.". That makes the $300 cost reasonable. If you choose to upgrade to a new camera the $300 can theoretically be applied to it.

I seen a post about replacing the focus screen on a T6i, but its jumbled and written Very poorly. does anyone have a link to a video or understandable written directions? Thank You.
I do not know where you purchased your screen, but a genuine Canon screen comes with instructions on how to change the screen, INCLUDING a special tool that you use to pick up the screen and set it down in place.

Just found this video for replacing a focus screen, different model camera but it looks easy and it comes with a tool to do it.
