I just received my Squeezebox2 last night, and noticed the display is crooked. The left hand side of the vacuum display is about 3/16 or so lower than the right hand side (in relation to the bottom of the unit).

Does anyone else have this problem? Is it easy to solve on your own?

That's very strange, I've never heard of a display coming loose before.

If you are comfortable opening the unit with a torx screwdriver, see
if it's come loose from the plastic tabs that hold it in place.

If not, please contact your reseller for an exchange.

Cool - I have no problem opening the device. I bought it directly from you, and I was hoping you wouldn't mind me opening the device (going through an exchange would deprive me of my new toy for a few days ;-).

I'm assuming since you're labelled as "Slim Devices CTO" that you're telling me it's okay to open the unit. It's not going to void my waranty or such?

From previous posts from SlimDevices, it would appear that the only way to actually invalidate your warranty is to take a hacksaw to the board (yes, people do do that...). That may not be exactly the official policy though. ;-)

I know your pain. :)

Nope, go ahead.

Thanks, I'll let you know what I find when I get the box opened.

Now, where's my hacksaw?

A company after my own heart.

When I was a kid, the first thing I did with every new present was take it apart and put it back together again. Confounded the hell out of my parents. Well, actually the first thing I did was read the manual cover to cover. Then I played with it for an hour or so to make sure it worked. Then I took it apart. Harder to do these days, tho ... glue instead of screws.

You did WHAT before taking it apart?!?!?

Here at Slim Devices, we have to buy two of everything...
