^^ That sounds like it may be the case.
I am just going to take it in to B&N when I get back in the US. I will get a refurbished unit I guess since it is within the first year. I am actually hoping the refurbished one will be better because it was already fixed. I read stories about how some have marks on the screen and such and I did not want anything on my screen except the ebook I am reading. After hearing some of your stories I fell better. Thanks!
