    Default Chipped the speakers

    ::facepalm::

    Managed to put chips on the plastic or resin or whatever it is of my Nexus 10's speakers on either side of the tablet. Not only are they annoying to look at, but I live in a humid place where stainless steel is never as stainless as it would like to be. Anybody know how I can patch them up? It's not worth sending the tablet back for repair and dealing with the Staples-Google-Samsung runaround.

    Have tried coloring them in with sharpie, but it just rubs right off. A little hesitant to break out the paint pen unless I know it won't damage anything.

    Thanks in advance!

    I have a chip on mine as well, Noticed it after the kids were palying with it so I have a good idea who to blame. I don't have a black paint pen but Next time I'm at staples I may give that a try. I confirm that the sharpee wears off after a bit.

    IN fact yes. I got a Black fine tipped sharpie paint pen. The first time I applied it in November the paint lasted about a month and flaked off. I reapplied ~ 1 week after that and the chip has remained covered ever since. It isnt perfect but it is far less distracting than the silver there when it is not covered.
