    Default Bulge on back of PlayBook?

    Does anybody's PlayBook lay flat? Noticed mine has a bulge in the center when layed down on a flat surface. Not a huge deal but makes typing on a flat surface a bit annoying.

    Mine has a slight wobble. I just assumed it is the raised logo causing it.

    If you have been using it extensively, maybe the heat is causing the plastic to warp and bulge. Does the back get really hot??

    No. It just gets slightly warm. It is going into an Otterbox on Monday so it should be irrelevant then. Just curious to see if others were affected. Cant complain too much as I haven't had any of the issues others have had.

    OK, that's good to know. I have been seeing a lot of threads about the heating issue on several forums.

    Mine is not perfectly flat. Not noticeable unless I sit it down on a flat surface and type on it. Don't bother me though.

    As for heat gets warm from time to time but would not say hot.

    same thing over here. My power button is also raised not flush. I wonder if that is correlated?

    Mine is flat. It's a good thing... I tend to type on it while laying flat on a table. A bulge for me would be a problem.

    Wouldn't that be annoying to type with it flat on a table? It's a tablet, it's made for holding just my 200 pesos.

    Lightbulb Hardware Reset Required!

    No need to settle. You just need to perform a PBMDGHRP (PlayBook Master Device Global Hardware Reset Procedure).

    How-To Guide: PBMDGHRP (PlayBook Master Device Global Hardware Reset Procedure) v1.0.0.0

    1. Hold onto PlayBook firmly with both hands.
    2. Extend arms.
    3. Hand PlayBook to cashier and instruct them to get you another brand new $700 tablet that isn't warped.


    You should probably write that down so you don't mix up the steps. If performed out of order, utter chaos ensues.

    Mine has a little bulge too near the BB logo. So that's not normal..?

    Anything bulging around a processor is not normal. Mine looks and feels fine... but if there was a bubble building under my BB logo... I'd have a problem.

    we need hi-res side by side shot comparisons! Also, maybe we should start a poll to try and see if bulge v. flat has correlation to the power button being raised v. flush...!

    I'd definitely get it replaced. It's irrelevant whether its a problem or not. The fact is, it has a bulge and most others do not. Since you're within the return policy, why not take advantage of it?
