Virtue Oled Issue- Please Help

So i recently purchased an OLED from my 13' Reflex Rail- installed it, which i think im positive done correctly (lol not brain surgery), but the bumpers or the marker's on and eye off buttons barely touch the the activation switch of the board.

It gets cumbersome to always dig my nails in the button switch to turn on the marker; is this a common issue? If so how can i tweak or mod it to make it easier to turn on?

THANKS!

Hey sorry for the inconvience on this. Due to varying tolerances in frames and boards this is possible. Luckily it's a quick fix. Just open the grips, get a pair of needle nose pliers (or just use an Allen key) and bend/push the button component on the board forward. The solder has a bit of flex in it and you should be able to slowly, gently bend it forward to make contact.

Let me know if that made sense.... This can happen with any board but with a stock board in the factory the can bend it during quality control in advance.

Of course, if there is a huge gap there could be something else going on and it might be best to call us. Ask for Tom the Circus Runaway if you give us a call. 631-617-5347

Thanks for the response! Good to know that some companies offer great customer service and monitor their products on sites such as this one!

Will try that tn and yes makes total sense and I called earlier. I do not know who I spoke to but he suggested to reinstall it and try to screw it in at a different angle.

Thanks once again.
