    Jiggling Battery Cover

    Advertisement



    At first I didn't have any issue with the battery cover, or I didn't notice it...until others here mentioned it. It's only a very slight up and down jiggle, and I thought it wouldn't bother me. But eventually it did.

    So what I did was take two tiny pieces of paper, folded once or twice, and stuck it in the slots where the top tabs of the cover slide in to. Yes, it's a bit tacky, but it's a cheap fix and the paper stays in there and doesn't fall out, and my back cover is nice and tight now.

    If you have other solutions, please post.

    I've even thought about using a small amount of play doh to fill that space for more of a "permanent" fix. You could always dig it out at any time when it's dried up. I don't know if I'd be willing to actually try it, but we'll see. Skies the limit on what kinds of stuff you could put in there :-).

    The paper may eventually "settle in" after a while and you might start feeling an ever so slight jiggle again. So you'd simply replace the paper. A cheap and easy solution.

    But I actually don't have that problem anymore. I have a hardcase cover on now and the battery door NEVER jiggles anymore :-).

    I wouldn't do playdough... U never know what that can do to the plastic... Most playdough has chemicals that can damage the plastic, if nothing else, it will remove the finish... And it'll start cracking...

    As I always say, if you are under your grace period for an exchange, use and abuse that right until you get the perfect device
    If it doesnt annoy you that much then just stick it out
    The Javelin I got stolen from me had a slightly jiggly battery door. The one I got back was and still is really firm and tight.

    I cut a business card a little smaller than the door and taped it to the door. Works great.

    LOL. I had already decided it was a dumb idea. One of those brainstorming ideas that would never had made it out of the first round. LOL. Never knew about the chemical reaction with playdough though. Thanks for the info.

    I simply took some scotch tape and looped it inside out, stuck it between door and battery. Didn't jiggle that much to begin with, but thought I'd give it a try.
    Works very well. Hoping new black door doesn't jiggle.
