The Nexus 7 is undoubtedly the most attractive $200 tablet available in the market, but is it too good to be true?

Reports on the Internet suggest that some units of the Nexus 7 seem to be suffering from screen popping issues. The screen on some devices starts creaking if pressure is applied to it and eventually pops out of its hinge.

Users of the xda-developers forum have identified the problem and have also posted a fix that users can undertake. You can read the details on the forum here.

User jam10238 has posted a solution, which involves opening the rear cover, and tightening the screws. Several users who have tried to fix the screws have said that they were many turns away from being completely tightened.

The forum has updated images on how to fix the screen of the Nexus 7 as well as a step-by-step guide. If you are too timid or don't want to fix the device on your own, we suggest you take it to the electronics store you purchased the device from.

The screen of the Nexus 7 may be popping up from its casing but the device is extremely well packed. Anyone who has tried to do an unboxing video of the device has faced problems. You can enjoy the video below:
