GPD XD Wiggly Screen **UPDATE**
« on: September 06, 2017, 06:04:06 am »
Since my issue with the wiggly screen i have took apart the cover
a few times trying to figure out the problem and tonight i had decided
to try 1 last time and i have finally figured out the issue. The problem
was that the hole where the hinge fits into has kind of turned into a
circular hole instead of having flat sides and rounded tops so here
is what i did.

I took out the hinge and I cut a very tiny thin strip of duct tape and
i put one end of the tape on 1 flat side of the hinge, wrapped it around at the 
bottom, stuck the other end to the other flat side of the hinge and from there
i VERY carefully and gently pushed the hinge back into place (it was a bit of a tight fit)
and put everything back together and i did a few tests by opening and closing it
and now it is not as loose as it was and is a bit stiffer now. It opens and closes
just perfectly with no issues at all i am SO glad that i managed to fix this issue with a
small and simple fix

yeah im SO happy and pleased with the outcome bro
im glad i thought of the idea to put duct tape on the hinge
to kind of tighten the gap to fill it to make it stiff again

Making it stiff is always nice
I might try that on mine later tonight bc I asked gearbest for refund or replacement party and all I got was 2 dollars in my wallet...

yeah it's not TOO stiff either it's just right to the point
where it can still open and close without any issues
and that's really ridiculous!! >:( alos just remember
when you cut a normal size strip of duct tape cut
a VERY tiny and thin strip out of the normal sized
one like maybe 2 Millimeters wide by 1 centimeter long
and put both ends of the tape on the flat sides of the hinge
and wrap it at the bottom of the hinge in a U shape but DON'T
wrap it around the hinge as it won't fit and when you put it back
in place use an allen wrench to push the hinge back in place BUT
slowly and VERY carefully (do NOT force it back into place) till
you can screw it back together then just do a few tests on it
by opening and closing it to make sure that it's not TOO stiff
and its easy to open and close
