Dear JA customer,

 

Thank you for your Just Answer question.

 

So that I may further assist you, I need some additional information.

 

It can be repaired, but the cost will depend on the faulty component or components. What does the effected area look like, and where is it on the screen?

 

A picture would be best if you can send one.

 

Thanks

I apologize but the picture have still not come through. The alternative is to post them on an external website such as "Snap Fish".

Thanks,

I just posted on Craigslist in case I can't get it fixed, I may try to sell it. Photos are on that site.
