    I had this happen to me with one of the three housings I purchased. I got a replacement. Fixing the button is a pain. At least I could not get it to work because the rubber piece that pushes onto the button on the ribbon adhered to the side of the board was damaged (the extended nipple must have broken off and it was flat and no matter how much you pushed it would not reach the actual button). I got a replacement.

    I'd contact the seller and ask him for a refund or replacement. He should have no problem with you shipping the damaged back (if he wants it back) after you receive the replacement.
    good luck

    only on my yellow one I saw a slight difference in color from body and simcard tray. I got another simcard tray that matched in color later though.

    The camera cover on my red one was raised as well. I finally decided to fix it. You can pry it off carefully, remove all traces of glue or adhesive tape and use thin adhesive tape to reseat it. You may have to take the lens cover (glass) off in the process and reseat that as well. I use this

    or carbon tape from work ( a little wider) for this. Now it is flush.
    If you know how to change the housing this is easy to do.

    some pictures here:

    edit: here is a pic after I used the tape from Amazon above to finish the job. It's perfectly flush and sits rock solid in the housing.

    Thanks for the reply Derausgewanderte!

    Sigh, I’d rather not have to ship it back to him as the thing only cost $18 (and shipping to china from Australia would probably be more expensive than the actual product). Maybe i’ll open it up and try to stick a piece of plastic in to try and make the contact better (assuming that's possible).

    I’ve asked the seller for a new one, if he sends one thats great, otherwise I’m not worried really, I never look at the sim card tray tbh!

    Thanks for those links and photos of the procedure! I’ll definitely keep them for later use (first priority is the iffy power button!).

    Thanks again for the continued support in this thread, i know everyone here appreciates it!

    Edit: here are some pictures, because everyone loves pictures. http://imgur.com/a/vgoeW
    Sorry I was too excited to take photos of the yellow enclosure before i put it on!

    EDIT 2: Seller is shipping me another one! Hopefully it wont take too long to arrive....but odds are.... :/

    I purchased a red 920 and now I have a yellow 920 which I got replaced as red was not available with Nokia. I had some issues with a red one after 9 months of use and its good to have a change ;)
