LCD Transfer Card Screw Removal

Some problems have been reported where the image on the LCD will flicker, will have lines running through the image, or will have incorrect colors.  These problems can be made to appear and disappear by moving the screen assembly back and forth.  We have traced this issue back to a possible connection problem created as the case is flexed. The flexing of the case is transferred to the LCD transfer card, which creates a poor connection between this board and the mainboard.  The solution for this issue is to remove one of the three screws which holds the LCD transfer card in place.  This will allow the case and transfer card to move independent of each other.
