Google Nexus 7 has separation problem with its screen
posted by Alan F. / Jul 18, 2012, 8:05 PM
A few Google Nexus 7 owners decided to copy this maneuver and found upon removing the back cover of their unit, that the screws were quite a few turns away from being sufficiently tightened. While getting a screwdriver and turning the screws (no, we don't recommend the Oppo Finder for this operation) helped some, it didn't solve the problem in every case where there was screen separation.
request a replacement unit. Now that the tablet has started shipping in number, you probably won't have to wait terribly long for a replacement. And we would try to avoid saying anything about having a screw loose because someone might take it the wrong way.
If you are the type that must fix it yourself before surrendering to a technician, you can find directions on how to remove the back cover and tighten the screws at the sourcelink.

umm.. your probably going to wait. The Play store was sending emails to people that ordered in some areas that the shipping time for the 16 gig version was going to be a few more weeks. It was all over G+ yesterday.

I have sent my TF101 (Asus Tranformer OG) in now 3 times in the last month, literally once a week, first time they replaced the wrong part, second time they replaced the correct part but damaged the camera, Im sending it in a 3rt time to fix the camera... Needless to say, I havent had an issue with doing the RMA and getting repair done, sure they might do a "quick fix" (IE I said the bezel was loose, so they just replaced the bezel instead of what it mounted to, easy to figure out if you spend more then 10sec on it), but not denials for my repair so far, and while Im annoyed as all hell at being without my tablet for coming up on a month now, they paid for shipping for the last 2 times and havent given me s**t when I sent it in... This is the LEAST problems I have had with an RMA/Repair center... Asus pays the facility well and while they may not take the extra time to examine the problem, they wont balk at taking it back for a second or third time to really fix your issue :D TL;DR: Call ASUS, get an RMA, get it fixed under warranty... My experiance has been GREAT considering so far with another tablet device from asus!

first adopter syndrome. it happens to ALL products. Before the trolls come in and start spouting their crap, remember all the initial problems each iphone has had.. especially with their yellow screen blotches and antennas.

iPhone and iPad various generations have had issues in the past, that's why I wait for certain batches to go away as issues appear factory regulations get tighter

Simple fix by holding the screen down for a long period of time to let the glue rebond - it's been two days and it's perfect! Check out the full guide: http://therealtonystark.blogsp
