Kindle screen issue, Customer Service very helpful
I haven't posted here for a while, mainly because I'm spending every free minute reading content on my Kindle 1!
Earlier this week I noticed a disturbance in the force - a horizontal white bar obscuring the text at the very top of the screen. I thought at first it was specific to just one book, but then noticed it was there all the time, even when it was turned off.
And it was getting bigger! And vertical lines were appearing too!
So this morning I phoned Amazon Customer Service and since it's still under one-year warranty, voila - they're sending me a replacement which should arrive tomorrow!
Both my husband and the Amazon tech guy think it has something to do with the screen driver (?) which means it's not really fixable. But it's nice to know their Customer Service is so responsive!

Whereas I'm having the same issue, but since I'm out of warranty, all they can offer me is $100 off a refurbished Kindle 1. They claim not even to be able to repair it. (A discount off an upgrade would be nice too, I have to say. Ugh.)
