(Home) repair of burst cell (dark spot) possible? Also, claiming on insurance ...

I think I must have whacked the display of my DR800 with something because a little dark spot has appeared and doesn't disappear when I power off, change pages or wipe the screen.

Looking at iRex's website it seems to be what they describe as "burst cell". Now I realise that I probably don't want to be sending my device to iRex at the moment, so is there anything I can do? I'm guessing no, but I thought I'd check.

Also, has anyone any experience claiming on insurance for a damaged eBook reader? How bad does the damage have to be before they will replace it? I'm guessing it really depends on my insurer!

I'm not sure if they're actually replacing or fixing anything. They're bankrupt after all.

iRex is definitely not doing any repair/replacements right now. They've said that they are not legally allowed to even ship/receive anything.
