I have a couple of smudges that have appeared on my Kindle screen, these are not word shadows but random smudges across the page. Any one else have this? How do I remove them?
UPDATE NOTE:
They are in the not part of the book but always in the same place no matter what I'm reading or if I'm on the home page. I can still read OK with these but am a bit worried if more appear?

UPDATE NOTE:
The screen itself is clean these are e-ink smudges...like you smeared fresh ink on a piece of paper.

January 6, 09 UPDATE NOTE

I finally called Amazon yesterday about 3pm Colorado time and I received a NEW KINDLE today at 11;50am!
I have my old Kindle packaged to return to Amazon tomorrow.
Amazon IS A REAL CLASS ACT! Great Customer Service!
I am now going to simply turn my Kindle off when I am not reading it...JUST in case that had something to do with the permanent screen smudges....

Are you sure they aren't actually part of the book? Some books that were converted to e-book format by scanning them will have smudges on the actual page.

Good question--to amplify on Jim's response--are the smudges on the same place on multiplle pages, in different books?

I hope this doesn't sound completely retarded, but are the smudges on the screen? Does the screen need to be cleaned?

I think I might call Amazon Kindle support since these are showing on the home page and in books.
