Housing check

Before placing the housing on the terminal, check that the edges are straight. Otherwise, there may be a distortion of the screen, which would cause ghost clicks.

1. Look at the edges of the housing, and check that it is not bent, as in this example:

2.1 If it is bent, it must be straightened. To do this, the ideal is to heat it so that it can be slightly deformed.
I use a hot air blower, but I think that with a hot hair dryer it can do the job. Otherwise, very hot (but not boiling) water: soak the side for a few seconds and bend the side evenly so that it finds a straight line.

2.2 A second approach could be not to tighten the screws on the sides of the housing too much, and/or to place spacers (washers 1 or 2 mm thick) between the hull and the housing, before screwing.
 2.3 However, the results seems better when both solutions are applied.

With this modification, the housing will no longer press in the middle of the edges and the screen will not be deformed. If you have any doubt, come and talk about it on the forum !

Cover closing

 1 The cover is placed open, at an angle of about 80° to the shelf. Place the hinges in the openings provided, then close them gently.

 2 Check that all the hooks are secured in the hull, then complete the closure by screwing the three screws provided (M2.5x8mm).
Do not overtighten the corner screws, or do not tighten them at all, unless you have made the previous modification.

stand mounting

For this assembly, use the M2x5mm screws: Vis pied.jpg

 1 Place the sides holding firmly on the edges, then screw in the two screws per side, without overtightening.

 2 Insert the rounded part until it locks.

 3 Screw the two screws at the base of the triangles, using the holes in the rounded part. This time, don't hesitate to tighten well.

 4 Check that the side is inserted in the slot of the rounded part.

 5 Finally, finish screwing the two screws at the two vertices of the triangles. Here again, do not hesitate to tighten well.
