Broken DR1000S

I just want to show my DR1000S is broken now.
It suddenly shows as in the picture.
I have used executive protection with it.
Now, contact IREX to send them fix without knowing display problem or circuit problem.
Let you know the result.

Do try a reset with the little reset button at the bottom first! You never know, especially if it wasn't physically stressed (dropped / bent) just prior to displaying this.

You have had some pressure on the display. That happens fast if you have books and the Irex Reader in the same backpack.

No warranty will pay for it - you have to pay for the repair.

Unfortunately, looks like a broken screen to me. joblack is right, this will probably not be covered under warranty. You never know though, can't hurt to ask.

Costs were around 250 Euro for the Iliad display - will be around that for the IRex Reader.

Another advantage - you will be extracareful in the future .

I have contacted from IREX it will cost 300 credits (IREX money) from repair and return shipments. It is about 250US$.
But I have to wait for shortage supply.

keng2000, care to share what happened to the screen?

I'm interested if it was lack of attention on your part or are they more fragile than the old iliads. I'm interested in buying one so that's why I'm asking.

I am not sure what's happened exactly.

I found it broken in the morning two day after brought it out in my bag with executive cover and 2-3 Hardcover books inside.
The bag felt down from the back seat and impacted by books. (my guess)
actually my iLiad is in there too, but it is all right.
