Black & Orange RG350 - Light Leak, Dull Screen UPDATED
« on: November 22, 2019, 06:32:50 pm »
UPDATE - My friend has since been in touch and his black unit is perfectly fine from the same seller so I guess it was just bad assembly of my unit... Unlucky I guess.

Hey folks....

I have just started to set up a Black RG350 for my lad for xmas and I have noticed HUGE light leak / bleed at the top of the screen and also very dull blacks bottom right of the screen. Has anyone else had this ?

REMOVED COMMENT  To send back to China safely recorded post from the UK is really expensive so I will try and re-seat screen or ask local mobile phone shop to do it.

REMOVED COMMENT I was just unlucky and it slipped passed Quality Control checks?

Has anyone else seen this issue?

This is NOT the fault of the seller and just bad luck.

Hi ace,

If you haven't already done so, my advice is get onto the Retro game handhelds discord and ask at the #rg-350 channel. It is a very active RG-350 community about the popular device with lots of useful information and discussions.

btw where did you happen to buy the faulty one from if you don't mind me asking?

Just so you know, it's not about the color, I have both the black & orange version and the clear black version, and they feel the same, sturdy and solid.

Probably good to name drop the seller, so others can avoid that one. 

I bought mine (showing up tomorrow) from the official Anbernic Store on AliExpress, so I'd hope it's legit & not a counterfeit knockoff.

Thank you, I will have a look on the discord channel over the weekend. I know Taki Udon done a tear down / case mod / replacement merging 2 units. I will see if he removes or re-seats the screen. :)

If the screen is not too tricky to remove and re-seat I will have a go, but if there is a chance I may damage it I will take it to my local mobile phone repair shop and see if they will do it.

Thanks for the reply and advise, I appreciate it

To be honest, I was unlucky... My friend has since been intouch, he has the black and his one is fine from the same seller. The seller is fine, just bad luck is all.

Admin please feel free to delete the thread, I would not want Ambernick or any re-seller to lose sales as a result of this thread.

Just so you know, it's not about the color, I have both the black & orange version and the clear black version, and they feel the same, sturdy and solid.

My Grey until feels better to me, the shoulder buttons on the Black & Orange until "feel" like different plastic to me. HOWEVER that said, this is just my opinion and NOT fact. I could be (and probably am) totally wrong.

They are both indeed "solid units" but my Black & Orange is it poorly constructed with light leakage and a dull section. I am confident this is just a one off as I am the only person with the issue.

I would still 100% recommend the RG350 over ANY other retro handheld out there. I have edited my post to reflect new information. At first I though maybe it was a fake unit,  but that is NOT the case. It is 100% genuine. I was just unlucky.

thanks
