Cause the bottom screen doesn't work anymore. He is distraught. I am annoyed as it didn't even last a year. Is there any hope?

You can fix them. Ebay sell separate screens for them.

how does that work? [intrigued]

You can order the whole screen from ebay, then you get someone to take off the old one and connect the new one. You can do it yourself if you're good with electronics. My sis got someone from her work to do it who had teeny screwdrivers. The parts inside are very small.

DD dropped hers so will be watching this with interest.

do you think it's a simple as the screen not working or could it be parts inside that are broke (and therefore not letting screen work)? I know you have no way of knowing cornsilk but wonder if I buy replacement screen if it might not fix the problem. sad

Do you remember how much the screens go for? [lazy and crazy busy packing]

Have just looked on ebay and screens seem to go for about £10.
I have just emailed one who seems to be able to do the repairs themselves (I wouldnt know where to start). Will let you know what they say if you like.

oh yes please. £10 very reasonable
