    Just got my Sound wave reissue and noticed the panel won't straighten out all the way. Anyone else have this issue know a fix or am I stuck and have to send it back.

    Yep, I've got the same issue. Been trying to look for flashing to cut away but nothing to find. Any kind souls out there willing to chime in with good advise?

    I have looked filed down a piece that looked to be affecting it, it helped but still isn't flush like the other one.

    Pull that back out straight, and then hold the blue piece tight while folding the silver part. The edges and that hinge are quite particular about timing and placement, it takes a strong nudge at the right angle to get it just right.
