[Solved] Sound cutting out on Meta

I just received my Meta a few days ago, and I have been having a great time with it.  Very nice design, comfortable buttons, and a great screen.

However, I have been having problems with the sound.  It seems as if the sound cuts out on the meta intermittently.  I can make the audio stop completely just by gently pressing on the case in certain places, which makes me think it's somehow a connection issue.  Is anybody else having this problem?

Hey, maybe the speaker moved a bit out of his place, could you open your Gamebuino to adjust this ?

Thanks, that seems to have worked! When I opened the Gamebuino I noticed that one of the springy contacts on the speaker was stuck in the compressed position, so I pushed it a couple times and it came back out.  I didn't realize that the speaker was connected to the pcb only by pressure from those springy connectors and not solder. Anyway, thank you. I'm glad the solution was so simple.
