i decided to redecorate my livingroom so instead of putting the rift back in the box i put it upstairs in the spare bedroom  on the table but my girlfriend placed  it facing the window without me knowing so for a week my rift has been facing the sun and as soon as i seen it my heart stopped beating as i knew damage would have happened. anyways i fired it up and there is a red/blue line in the screen towards the bottom, you forget its there once playing games but i hate  the fact that its there. is there anything i can do?

    Sadly i think you are stuck with it unless your household insurance covers accidental breakage and the like mate ?
    A PC with lots of gadgets inside and a thing to see in 3D that you put on your head.

    I second @ Techy111, check your home insurance/umbrella policies or renter's insurance if applicable. 600$ isn't something that companies would care too much about to replace if covered (as in they won't ask too many questions ;) )

    Record a video of you crying like a little bitch and begging for a replacement. Send it to support.
    They will do one of three things!

    Worth a shot.
    Worst case scenario is your misses clearly owes you another headset.

    I mean, don't you now have leverage to make her do something cool?

    Ask Oculus, if they would be willing to fix it and how much? After all who is more qualified?
    I got curious once how it looks like taken apart and in the photos it didn't look like something I'd wanna mess with too much myself.
