REB1100 lines of missing pixels
I was recently given an in-the-box REB1100 from a friend who received it as a present several years ago but never used it. After diddling around a bit, I was able to download books from Gutenburg and manybooks and am happily reading. However, it now has lines of missing pixels across the middle third of the screen. One line out of eight is missing. The text is still legible, but it's annoying.
Is this repairable? By someone with more guts than knowledge or finesse? It screams bad connection to me, but what do I know... I haven't taken it apart yet because I didn't want to risk losing it totally.

yeah, it sounds like a connection went bad somewhere in it. if you don't mind putting a little money into it, you can contact ETI customer support, and ask about having it serviced there, while you're at it you can have them update the firmware (migrating the device to Ebookwise) and you will be able to hook it up to an EBW bookshelf..
worst case, you may be able to do a trade in, and get a new ETI-2 (same thing, new company) for, usually, but don't quote me on this, $50.00 or i am sure someone around here will have better DIY repair advice. try cross posting this in the Ebookwise forum..
