The livescribe OLED-Display is cheapest cr** - not perfectly sealed, oxygen and especially atmospheric humidity can rapidly degrade the organic light-emitting materials inside. Livecribe has proven :(

I got my pen replaced by livescribe (warranty) just to see it fade shortly after the original warranty period expired.

You can disassemble the Pen, but i found no replacement for the display so far... I can't imagine that this is a proprietary part made just and only for livescribe, so somewhere in this world there must be an OEM part. Maybe someone else has an idea?

Buydisplay.com has some small OLED displays that might work. If I find one successfully I'll post it. If someone finds it first, please post it
