Default Screen is raised above bezel down near the touch key lights

So I bought a T-Mobile gs2 the other day off Craigslist and the screen is kinda raised from the bezel down at the bottom. I have tried to push it down but it doesn't do anything. It's kind of annoying because the light from the 4 buttons comes through the bottom. Anyone have any suggestions of how to set it down into the bezel? Thanks

Only option I can see would be to open it up and try pushing it down once you've got some screws loose.

Only guide I was able to find on a tear down of the device, use it at your own risk.

The chrome around the phone appears cracked too looking at your provided pic

Haha well I got a pretty good deal on it. I'll try some surgery and see if that works. If not I'll just re-sell it, its not terribly noticeable.

I see multiple, lol. You should've checked it out thoroughly before buying, cheap price or not if the seller didn't mention those flaws and labeled it in good shape or even mint it should come that way.

Maybe get a new bezel.

Looks like it was dropped in that dented corner which forced the bezel to shove the screen up. hope you didnt play more than 200 on it... or you might as well bought it new.

Does it press in and lift back up or it doesn't go down at all?
