Thinkpad Twist bezel and cracking noise

2013-01-02, 16:46 PM

I've just receive my Thinkpad Twist but there's two things that I'm worry about.

First, when I move the screen, there is an annoying cracking sound that seem to come from the top right corner of the screen. Anybody hear this on his machine?

 

Second thing, the bezel near the windows button on the screen seem to get off. The button seem ''far to reach'', it's not flush with the bezel.

Here are two picture of it

You can see it just to the right of the button. I don't want it to do this all along the screen!

 

Considering that I have the laptop for 2 days, don't think it's normal. I've order it the November 11th and don't really want to wait another month!

Hi Vilac,

 

In regards to your Windows button, it should be OK as long as when you push the button it functions properly.

 

As far as the cracking sound, are you holding the screen by the edges as you twist the screen?

Are you pressing anything on the touch area of the screen when you do it?

The cracking sound occurred when I move the screen up and down, no matters how I move it. It's seem to be from the top right corner.

I personally don't think it's normal that the bezel is getting off and that it's OK! The bezel move if I press on it and i'm worry it will go all along the screen. I'll make a call to lenovo soon.

I'm experiencing this issue as well. I'm pretty sure the squeakong is from the plastic faux-chrome trim that runs along the perimeter of the screen assembly. If I run my finger along the chrome trim there are two spots that squeak without even moving the screen- they are at the top about 1-1.5 inches from the edge of each side.

Did you solve the problem with the noise because I have exactly the same? Thank you.

That crackling noise comes from my newly bought ideapad s340 also. It is a manufacturing defect. Plastic bezels loosely attached to its frames. The back cover also produce a crackling noise if pressed lightly. Sometimes i am afraid the whole structure falls apart.
