Subject:  Re: [VADCFLL-L] EV3 Question - Urgent Help

I very much agree with Nick Swayne -- call Mindstorms tech support:

MINDSTORMS technical support, 1-877-680-2800, Monday through Friday, 8:30 am
to 6:30 pm EST

We had the screen failure (see my panicked forum entries from two weeks ago)
and they sent a replacement -- no hassle and shipped same day.  They said it
would be 3 days but it was 4 business days (shipped from Nebraska to
Virginia).
