Quoting Mama♥Sweetpea:" Smurfing seriously? I haven't even had this damn thing for a year. Ugh. Thanks. "
Quoting Mama♥Sweetpea:" I didn't pay for one, just have the limited 1 year warranty and I don't know if it will cover this. I'll call and check though. "
Quoting The Dandelion Rapist:" Manufacture warranty's are usually a year. You might be able to call the company and get a replacement. ... [snip!] ... If you bought it from an office supply or an electronics store, you might be able to take it in to see if they can replace it. "
