I’m pretty sure there are a lot of tech junkies and casual tech enthusiasts out there who are eagerly awaiting the arrival of the ASUS-made Google Nexus 7 on Philippine shores. However, it might bug some of you to know that people in other countries like the US, Canada and the UK who have already gotten their Nexus 7 noticed some screen separation issues. It seems that some faulty units don’t have the screen tightly screwed down, causing it to slowly move above the bezel, and in some cases, eventually popping out. It’s actually an easily solvable problem that doesn’t take a lot of DIY talent, but things like this shouldn’t happen in the first place, especially from a trusted manufacturer like ASUS.
One particular XDA member, jam10238, took it upon himself to demonstrate how you can fix the problem by taking off the back of the Nexus 7 (iFixit photos shown above) and tightening the screws that hold the screen in place. While it does work for most people, some gave feedback that there was still some screen shifting issues where the screen couldn’t be completely tightened down. I doubt this issue will persist once the Nexus 7 eventually reaches us, however it’s best to watch out for it if you have plans of buying one.
