Sat on reader (by mistake duh) and now its full of black and gray stripes.

I accidentally sat on my reader and now is full of black and gray lines..
The Sony help page said that a hard reset should help, and it kind of did but it is still all stripy.. not unreadable but it really bothers me.
Any ideas on how to get rid of them?

I did something similar to my 505. I now have a 600. Only solution I found.

If the stripes are orthogonal, it's the controller; if they aren't, it's the screen. Can you post a picture? Mind you, for the hefty sum you have to pay for a broken screen (if it's a broken screen), or if the 505 is not under warranty, it would be better to do like dgillette.rm and search for a new reader...
