    Between the power button and exhaust vent.. Mine is slightly "bowed" out and not sitting flush. A small bit of pressure and it moves to sit flush.. Looks like a few clips could have been used at this critical spot.

    That's not good and doubt seasoning is going to make it any better. I would take that back and exchange it. If the store doesn't have one to give you then you have a good arguement for your money back.

    Problem is Nintendo has you by the balls with their saves on system memory only.. Risk over 24hrs of playtime in Zelda to fix a millimeter of bad manufacturing??

    On top of that if they decide to ship a new one rather than repair yours, even if they do a system transfer, the one they send you could have a bunch of dead pixels. But, you know, "that is normal" and not a defect. :wacko:

    might wanna take it apart and see if you can glue it or find out what lose.
    It would suck to lose all your save data which is what would happen if you stick with the store return.
    If you let nintendo step in then your going to have to wait for repair which means being without a switch for a while.

    Doesn't opening a device void the warranty usually? Especially if you start dumping glue in it?

    I dont see any void stickers on the system. And they would have to take it apart to see that glue was added. But its he fixes his own problem then there isnt anything for them to do right now.

    But willing to bet its a broken clip or loses screw

    The dead pixel problem with LCD is there since the beginning of LCD, it's not Nintendo's fault and the LCD standart judges that 3 dead pixel is okay.

    Never said it was Nintendo's fault, it is the fault of the LCD panel manufacturer. The "LCD standart" can do whatever it wants, my standard is no dead pixels or back it goes.

    The US FDA standard for ground turkey allows for 50% to be contaminated with salmonella. I have a different standard.

    So from some discussion on Reddit. It seems as though others have had this on their Switch too. Glad I'm not the only person..

    I seen the issue on Reddit as well. Is it the LCD part or the backside? If it's the LCD part you have to get it replaced or fixed. The backside can come off and get poped back in.

    That's the thing, nobody cares about our standard, only the manufacturer's. Wich is fine by me. I ain't no crying baby. Btw, cook your turkey right and goodbye salmonella.

    I think the point being made by most isn't that it is acceptable, but rather we shouldn't expect from Nintendo what we don't from others. Basically no freak out from other companies doing dlc, but then suddenly it's a major problem when Nintendo dies it. They didn't even block any normal gameplay behind a dlc wall, unlike a game (can't remember which) that literally blocked major features behind a dlc wall.

    Edit: Corrected my phone's stupid swype which apparently doesn't work very well
