My iRiver e-reader screen is broken

Hi

I'm new to mobileread.

I received my iRiver e-reader about 2 months ago. It's been really great and I'm loving it.

Unfortunately, when I switched in on this afternoon, the screen was just a mess. I tried switching it off and on again, but still the same thing. I think that the screen may be broken, I can't think how though, as I'm so careful with it. I'm really so sad. Is their anyway that it could be fixed. Please help!!

Thx

Hi Photogirl, welcome to mobileread!

I'm sorry to hear about the problems you have with your new reader. It really sounds like you have a broken screen. Unfortunately, in this case you can't do anything yourself to fix it. You must send the device to your vendor or to iRiver for repair.

The screen is quite fragile and it may be that he already broke a few days ago. Sometimes it takes a little time to show.

Not true, I have replaced a screen on an EB02.

Your story is under warranty and you should take it back to the shop. They will be able to get the screen fixed but you will probably find that it costs more than a cheap e-book reader from a supermarket.

If you can find a screen then it is not too tricky to replace, but finding a screen is not easy or cheap.
