Kudos to kobo (and Chapters)

I bought my kobo on July 8 and have been enjoying problem free reading since then. Fast forward to yesterday. I pull out my kobo only to discover that the screen is all messed up. It looks like e-ink has been smeared on the lower right quarter of the screen and it will not boot up. I plug it in and charge it up til the blue light comes on. Still nothing. I paper clip it. Still nothing. I menu-dpad-paperclip it. Nothing.

So I decide to take it to the nearest Chapters to see if they can SDcard flash it. Keep in mind that I am now on holidays 2000 miles from where I bought my kobo. The guy at chapters takes one look at my kobo and says that flashing it won't work. Great, I think, here comes the month long repair ordeal. But the guy says he will replace it right then and there. I had no box and no receipt, but Chapters replaced it on site anyway.

Top notch customer service. I'm very impressed with both kobo and Chapters.

Sounds like a broken screen (they're glass and somewhat fragile). Very nice the way they took care of you.

... and then Alice woke up!

In this day and age, Marley, your experience does seem kinda dreamlike. Well done. Karma to Chapters. Cheers. Neil
