Something like that just isn't worth it to them to repair. Even if it's a simple problem, it's easier and probably more cost effective to just give you a new one.

Took mine in to the store on July 5th and got it back today (July 10).

It was plastic-wrapped and has a green-dot sticker on the bottom.

On the receipt it states, "Repaired Power Connections".

So far, so good.
