My 32 day old PRS505 just borked it's screen. The rest still appears to work, but the display is Kaput! I tried everything: charging, warming (condensation), syncing, resetting - if you can think of some combination of button presses I tried it. Have you ever gotten the indicator light to blink orange? Since it was two days past it's in-store return period I wasn't able to get any help from the blue temple where I purchased it. It's now on it's way back to Sony for a replacement/repair.
I fear what will happen if I'm given a different reader. Has anyone had to deal with their DRM'd books like this? Can Sony change the reader ID so I won't have to reload all of my purchased book again? I'm assuming that they will at least allow me to do this. I may have to go back to pbooks for a while - Arrrrrgh!
