    Question Is my 201 a Lemon?

    I bought my 201 back in December and it was fine (with the known exceptions of the GPS and weak WIFI) until about June. Since then, the camera has gone out. The screen started to "jump" or move up and down some. This has been happening more often. There are lines that show up on the left side of the screen on occasion. Recently, the back arrow on the screen flickers constantly. And to top it off the battery has decided that it will not charge past 57%.

    Do I need to send this back? Will it do any good? Is there something else that can be done to fix these errors?

    Welcome...Have you tried some of the simpler things first?
    Cold boot/Hard reset? Or a little more involved, such as a factory reset?
    Does your unit have all the updates? If you could add a little more info it would be helpful into pointing you
    in the right direction. The camera for instance, doesn't work at all? Or there have been these 'green lines' reported?
    If you can give a little more of the specifics....

    EDIT--Should've added, the steps for a cold boot/hard reset can be found in The Master Help Guide link in my
    signature. Easy place to start if you haven't done one(or thirty)....it seems to clear up alot of the boogers that
    collect in the system.

    Thank you for the info. I did a cold boot and that cleared up the charging issue. I haven't noticed a video issue yet but I just rebooted. As for the camera, it's just a bunch of moving green with a few other colors thrown in.

    The android version is 4.0.3, Kernel version 2.6.39.4. Is this the current version? Never mind, I checked, it is the current version.
