A five lb package the size of an emate gets very expensive. Items in
the range of an ounce or two that fit a #10 envelope are very
Hope this is useful.
I'm willing to do hinge repairs on eMates, but this is not a
difficult task and unless the display ribbon is damaged it's easy to
do yourself. Years ago I had a small workshop at my house with 4
novices and we all did an emate Hinge re-grease including all
disassembly including, unsoldering backlight and speaker, taking the
hinge apart for thorough cleaning and straitening and reassembly in
about 3 hours, This included refreshments and conversation.
There aren't any simple repairs on the Messagepads except part
replacement such as backlight, and many wouldn't call that simple.
