    Did you do this as your idea, or did Flex advise you?

    I would send it in right away. If you try to fix it yourself you may void any warranty

    From Jean's pictures it looks like the tablet is expanding

    I have initiated a helpdesk ticket.  We'll see what they advise.   I assume my warranty is long gone.

    If it's a battery issue you might not want to leave it on unattended

    @Mike - just wondering if the battery is swelling like in Jean's case how would you ship it to Flex? Wouldn't that be unwise?

    Had this happen to a phone that I would leave charging most of the time....repair shop said same thing as below and that it was a fire risk in addition to the excessive heat resulting in damage to the device.

    I think about the same age.  I really don't remember, but I got them when they first were available.

    Does this mean that the M should not be plugged in the whole time. If we leave the M unplugged long enough, the internal battery will discharge to the point where the M's charging circuit won't recharge it.

    I've been leaving my M plugged in to it's power supply 24/7. I use it several times a week. I rarely move it away from the operating desk, I use it more like a desktop radio. Should I adopt some procedure of unplugging the power supply?

    My M is one of the first ones made.

    Mark, how many reports have we seen with this happening? For me I think it is the only one I have heard about.

    Was the screen purchased from Flex Radio? If not where did you purchase it? Thanks
