    These things are way to delicate. Even being careful the actuator came off after 3 uses.
    Do you service this or is there anyone or replace these?

    The small flaps that locks down the cable for the screen and the mouse break easily. I have two broken pandas to prove it.

    So now that they are broken is there anyway to get them fixed?

    Please note these connectors should be replaced by ones that actually work. I have owned ODROID Pi's and other boards I have never broken one of them. Taken cameras on and off. Connected things and unconnected them. These connectors are truly of the poorest quality I have ever seen. I purchased new connectors and hope I can find someone that can actually replace them.
    BUT please release a new version that addresses these issues. The touch screen is fantastic for development and testing but not for deployment. VNC and WiFi development is too slow and makes using the device painful to develop on.
