Default Screen Problem

Please Login to Remove!

My 7250 was knocked off the desk and hit the sole of my shoe on the screen this morning. THe liquid is obscuring about 25% of the screen. How long does it take to dry up usually and is there anything I can do to help?

I've never seen it get better when the screen does this. It always gets worse...... I've had several users drop their Berrys and we've always had to replace them (the Berry, not the user...although that isn't a bad idea.....)

Anyone else. One friend told me it should "dry up" over the next few days/weeks, but I don't want to have a device going bad...

You guys were right. I thought I forgot to buy insurance but realized actually I did, so I got a new one yesterday.
