    Prime Dock hinge loose / wobble

    I couldn't see any answers really regarding this, when docked, there seems to be some play in the hinge of the dock so even though secure, the screen wobbles around a bit. I have had a similar thing with a laptop and the hinge needed tightening however I'm not prepared to void my warranty and open it up!!

    I have only just noticed it and I'm pretty sure it didn't used to be like this?? It makes the prime feel less solid and does interfere a little when I have the TFP on my knee and the screen quite forward as it rocks about.

    If I have to RMA it, would I be able to just send the dock or would they want it all!? (UK version bundled with dock) I can't live without my prime now!!

    I have 4 Primes in my office at the moment, all docked and there is a very little bit of movement back to front but I'm not going to call it a wobble. They are all the same. The hinge itself is pretty tight.

    That might explain it a little better, the screen moves backwards and forwards but the hinge isn't moving, it just sort of wobbles!

    That's the wobble I was talking about that I see on the ones I have in my office but I haven't wiggled them as hard as you so they didn't move that much.

    well I don't make a habit of shaking it that hard....I was just trying to demonstrate where it was moving

    I'm still pretty sure it has got worse as I hadn't noticed it until the other day, I wouldn't mind if I didn't affect using it but when you have the screen quite far forward the screen rocks about,
