I've been enjoying my adabox 12 since i got it but today when i turned it on a part of the switch fell out. Now i have to uplug the battery to turn it off. Can you think of a fix for this, i can solder but i dont know how to re-flow.

Oh no! That looks like the metal shell that holds the plastic switch and contacts was loose enough to allow the part to fall out. I don't think you need to solder anything -- if it's possible to fix it would be by placing that part back in and squeezing the metal shell back onto it.

If not, we are happy to replace the PyGamer, please email support at adafruit dot com and reference this post.
