    Screen squeak?

    My screen will occasionally squeak when its clicked on the corners. Has anyone else heard of this? :eek5:

    I have thought about a replacement, but from what I have read, some of the replacements have more issues. :dead1:

    Yes squeaking is not a good sign. I would get a replacement for this.

    Use the washing machine fix! Also fixes dust under screen issue. Just remember to set the washer to delicates/knitt and don't forget the fabric softener!

    Ive replaced 4 for the crunchies, and 3 for the "No Click" and now I have one that does what it is supposed. By the way if you have replaced 3 the 4th is supposed to be a brand new device. The last 3 I had were brand new and not refurbs.
