Overlapping images and unusable.

After the device fell almost two feet, the screen shows lines and overlapping images and print. It is not usable. Can this be repaired?: if so, where, (because I am not a tech) or should I scrap it and buy new?

Answered! View the answer I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

yes - the kindle could be repaired. but it's not worth it!

replacing the display costs 228$ + shipping (CLICK).

a new kindle 2 costs 259$ shipping included

i don't know how much you will get for the broken kindle 2 - the broken kindle 1 are around 15-30$

so selling the old one and getting a new one is better then getting the other one repaired (a new one comes with the full warranty)

I agree with you and came to the same conclusion. And while I considered the extended contract which would cover a second year, and include ONE replacement due to falling, it won't cover me while traveling out of the country. Thinking of a kevlar case with memory foam instead. LOL. thanks for your input.

Nope, only "permalink and history" listed. Suggestions?

AS I said, there is only "Permalink, and History", not the rest. But then everything popped up, and I don't know what I did for that to happen. This is taking too much effort now that it's resolved.
