Something's loose inside...

I just received a Atmegatron that was a store demo unit.  Everything's working great, but there's something rattling inside -- a loose screw or other bit of metal perhaps.  Are there internal screws or something that might not have been tightened?  Should I just go ahead and open the back and check things out?


Yup, open it up.  Just the 4 screws on the back.  My guess is that it's a nut that's fallen off a micro-pillar (the bit that holds the PCB to the case).  There's 6 micro-pillars so you could just take the nut out and it'll probably be fine.  If you're OK to put it back with some pliers, that would be best if possible.


That was it exactly.  Thanks, and I love the synth by the way :)
