Geez....not that bad, I haven't. lol. You might be able to fix it. Pop it in the oven (dry heat) around 150 or so, check it after a few minutes, and let it cool on something that will fit inside the rim maybe with a flat weight on top...couple of different sized pots maybe.

Was this caused by suctioning with the boiling water method?

Nope! No water used. Just lots of mini folds around the rim. It has worked with Z and Champ. plastic. Maybe Echo plastic is just crap...

its fixable. don't put it in the oven. boil water and pour it into the disc face down. fill it all the way up and let it sit til cool it should take care of most of that. man that sucks.

Tried that. Didn't make any difference at all. Any other ideas?

yeah one more idea. grab a pot that the disc will fit into. Boil water separate in the microwave. place disc in the pot face down and fill up the pot over the disc. its key that you do not boil the water in the pot, but pace the disc in the pot and pour boiling water around and over the disc. Plastic has a little memory and wants to go back to normal. hopefully this will help.

you could also suspect this in a bowl face down and pour boiling water into the disc and let sit. this will cause the dome to pop back out.

Wow...that's crazy. I've never done it with echo, but like you, all the bending I've done on champ, star, opto, gl, etc...no troubles at all. If you can shape it back, let us know what worked for you.
