Some things are too good to be true and it appears that this is true for the Google Nexus 7tablet, which started deliveries to consumers recently.

As Android enthusiasts start to get the hang of using the tablet featuring the latest version of the Android OS, the Jelly Bean Android 4.1, some owners of the Google Nexus 7 tablet have reportedly found some issues with the screen of the device. An image was posted by Faux123 on Twitter that show some light coming through the side of the tablet. The posted image was initially found by Pocketnow.

Another issue that was discovered by one user of the Google Nexus 7 tablet was a creaky bezel. However jam10238, an XDA user, fixed the issue instead of sending it back for repairs. The user simply opened the portion between the plastic and the leather using a flat screwdriver. After opening the case of the Google Nexus 7 tablet, the user tightened the Phillips screws found at the back of the screen and dealt with the creaking sounds on the device. Although the issue was resolved, the user indicated that owners of the Google Nexus 7 tablet should do this at their own risk.

Similar creaking sounds were also noted by other users of the device and they solved the problem in a similar fashion. Since the back cover was not intended to be opened, users may have to do this at their own risk.

However it appears that the issue may be limited to a small number of users of the Google Nexus 7 tablet.

It is recommended that users who experience the issue should send the Google Nexus 7 tablet to Asus through a return merchandize authorization or RMA. However since the RMA website of Asus is only for the Eee PCs, notebooks, PDAs and LCD Displays, users will have to bring their units to the nearest Asus service center.
