Dear Lindsay,

thank you for the guide how to open up that little thing!

Apparently I have fried it after I had mislaid the charger and used my

universal charger without checking the voltage: 8 instead of 5... If only

I had used my reading glasses.

Is there something like a fuse that I could repair/exchange?

Thank you for your help!

Respectfully,

Wolfgang

Thanks for the help, I am just curious where I can get the new screen, I believe that the front glass is fine but the actual display I am pretty sure is not.
