    Is that why they cost so much more in Europe?
    You got a calltag for shipping.

    I had to pay shipping to the repair center here in the US

    I just got mine back from repair. My repair detail is:

    Symptom: LCD screen leaked
    Repair: Replace M80TA DIGI FFC 8P, 0.5MM, 35MM

    This also appears on SAM's repair list so we have that in common. Also, they did not reset the OS which I see as a good sign. So it appears maybe the "M80TA DIGI FFC 8P, 0.5MM, 35MM" part is to blame (whatever that is)?

    I reset the OS before I sent it to them and created a local user account so that I could scribble with the pen in journal until it failed. The local user account is still intact.

    So what do you think the symptom: LCD screen leaked means?

    Not sure, it appears in both mine and SAM's, but different part replaced to cure it in his. He had the same part replaced, but to fix a different problem (supposedly). Lol, doesn't make sense.

    Maybe liquid from the liquid crystal display is leaking and shorting out the digitizer somehow?

    Hmm
    My operating system was left intact also. T
    They had not reloaded.

    I suspect the screen had been accidently broken
    thus the new bezel trim and what appears
    to be a new display.

    I think ours are the only ones with these parts listed so far.
    Did yours go to LA for repair?

    At least it did not take them over a month to fix your unit.
    Keeping fingers crossed, it has been 15 days now since mine came back from repair...

    I thought it met a light leak(?), not
    an actual liquid.
    LCD= Liquid Crystal Display do they have much
    actual liquid in them?

    My first screen was much dimmer.
    The replacement one is brighter.
