I am sensitive to things not being level, like pictures hanging crooked, print on a page not being level, etc.

I really like my new nano, but I detect that the video is not entirely level within the frame. It seems to be tilted down a little on the left. (The black border seems thicker on the bottom right side than it does on the bottom left side). I find it distracting while watching videos.

Does anybody else have this issue with their nano 3g?

Thanks,

    Where did you buy your iPod nano? Are you anywhere near an Apple retail store? Since you have a case open with AppleCare Support, they might just exchange the iPod for you. They've done that for me when my wireless Mighty Mouse became defective.

    Mine is slightly tilted too, a degree or two counterclockwise, but it doesn't bother me. I was more bothered by the click wheel in the 2G Nano that snapped as I circled around it.

    My little brother just got his nano in the mail today and his screen is tilted too. I wonder if he'll notice.

    I guess I really shouldn't have read your post. After checking, mine is tilted too! Now that little thing is going to drive me crazy. I bought mine in Tokyo too (at an Apple store) but I'm 2 and half hours away and I don't feel like making that trek. I'll try what you did.

    Thanks for the post!

    You can call Apple and they might be able to send you a new nano.

    Mines off slightly, but we are talking at most 1/4 a centimeter. I had to pull out a ruler to try to see if it was really off or not. If I have to pull out a ruler and put on reading glasses to see it I guess its close enough <g>
