Hello all

For a long time, ever since I dropped it once, my zaurus' screen mechanism was a bit wobbly.
Nothing that would prevent me from using it, but it finally got on my nerves and I decided to fix
it now. Could anyone give me some advice/pointers?
BTW, the wobblyness is not in the screen lifting but the screen rotating part, so the screen panel moves
a few mm to the sides when in portrait mode (only if I push it with my finger, not on its own).

First thing to do would be to make sure that all external screws are tight enough (not *too* tight!). If you put the zaurus in "laptop mode" then turn the screen 90 degrees from there you can see two screws on the hinge. Tighten those if they need it.
