  • Owners of the Limited Edition Steam Deck OLED are reporting cracks in their handheld PCs.
  • The cracks appear to be caused by screws that are overly tight.
  • The issue may also be linked to the transparent plastic used for the back.

It’s been about five months since Valve launched the Limited Edition Steam Deck OLED. While there were no big issues with the device at the time, it appears owners are now noticing a common problem starting to emerge — cracking.

First spotted by Kotaku, a number of Reddit users have flocked to the website to share stories and images of their gaming system suddenly developing cracks seemingly out of nowhere. According to the reports, all of the cracks are appearing on the back side of the device next to the screws.
