    Dock creaking

    I just got my dock from Amazon and the thing creaks like crazy. Is that normal?

    My dock does not creak at all. Is it around the edges of the dock, or is it the hinge?

    It doesn't make any noise when you move the dock without the Transformer in it.

    Is it locked in, latch all the way to the right?

    Yeah it was fully locked. I have ordered a replacement. Hopefully this one is better.

    For those keeping track, I did get a replacement and it's completely silent.

    When my Transformer is docked and I touch the screen, it creaks like crazy as well. Does noone else have this problem except the OP? Sorry for reviving an old thread but it's the only one on the whole internet I could find about this issue

    I would really like to avoid sending my dock back so what I'd like to know is if anyone has managed to fix this themselves, by tightening the screws or something similar...

    Thanks!

    I finally fixed the creaking! After trying all sorts of things, like screwing everything tight, bending the hinge and whatnot, a friend suggested to me that it might be the bottom of the tablet rubbing against the hinge that is creaking. So I put some duct tape on the "bottom" of the tablet bezel and it worked! It's not very stylish right now, but I'll fix that once I figure out how . I'm happy as long as it's silent.
