my last k3 made a cracking type sound if i pressed on the right hand side. sounded like something was broken underneath the plastic.
Thanks for your reply, bZkindle. if I hold the kindle and shake, i can here the sound from the loose button. So disappointed. I think I will ring amazon to arrange a replacement then.
