Hello, there is nothing you can easily do to fix that, it should be replaced, you can however heat it with a hair drier for a few hours, ideally for more than 5 hours, and there is about a 50% chance that you can restore its function for a while at least,

.

My goal is to give you the best experience possible!

I hope by the time we are finished that I have earned a 5 star rating! Please remember to rate my service by clicking on the 'Finish and rate your expert' link near the top of your screen ( or the 5 stars ) before you leave today.

.

Rating will not increase your charges, but it is how I earn a living
