    Sides Of My Pearl

    Advertisement



    On the side with the volume controls. The silver frame seems to be slack. I can push it in and it creaks (spelling?), the other side doesnt do this. Also the battery cover seems loose. I rub my finger on it to clean out a smudge it tends to loosen. Anyone experience any of this? Any tips on ways to fix this.

    Yeah it gets kinda annoying. I hate the creeking noise it makes when I press it. It looks flush like the other side yet it seems loose.

    Yeah, a lot of the Pearls have it. It's a weak spot in the manufacturing. You're not alone.

    Mine doesn't have it though.

    I've heard of a lot of people who have the side problem. Battery cover thing is easy to fix. Just put a little piece of foam or rubber under the battery cover centered and just below where the camera hole is. It'll stay on like a charm.

    Re: Sides Of My Pearl

    I recently disassembled my pearl. Unfortunately, I didn't come up with a very good picture of the removed sides, but here's a picture showing the four clips on each side that help anchor the clips (shown in red). Having taken a look at them, I would guess that some pressure on the sides would be enough to click them back into place. I definitely know that there is no need to worry that your sides will come off, they are anchored top and bottom by the screws that hold the front and back of the pearl's housing together. There are two tabs on each side piece (shown in green) that insert way into the central portion of the pearl, and are held in place once the screws are inserted.
    This is just a theory, but it could be that the screws on your pearls were tightened before the side pieces were adequately seated. It might be interesting to loosen these screws somewhat and see if it gives the side piece enough play to slide closer to the housing and engage the four little clips.

    Re: Sides Of My Pearl

    You're welcome, guys. I'm a graphic designer and I was kind of dissapointed with the disassembly instructions out there so I've been trying to make some better ones with callouts and illustrations. To the credit of those who have tried already, though, it's really hard to get good pictures of that interior black plastic.
