Full Version: Squeaky/creaky Battery Cover On C1000

On the SL-C1000 I just bought, the battery cover is flimsy at best.
When I'm holding the z, I tend to be touching the cover with my fingers, and every time I do it squeaks and creaks and groans (I HATE THAT!!!!).

I tried putting some black electrical tape on the inside of the cover, but that doesn't seem to do any good.

Has anyone found a way to quiet that down, or is it something I will have to live with?

For the price of the z, you would think they could make that part a little better.


The stylus also rattles when in place.
I dont have a problem with squeakiness from my battery cover...

So I have no remedy... other then... if you find out where the plastic is rubbing... and file it down...


I have noticed that too about the stylus; try a small piece of tape, transparent type wrapped around the main barrel. I would put just enough (not to much) to make a snug fit when inserted, as long as it doesn’t bother you when using the stylus.

no-problems here, oh the stylus, I use a old tungsten t3 stylus from my palm days
