Hello guys, I'm new to this forum.
First of all, I would like to apologize if i'm posting this on the wrong section of the forum (which i'm most likely doing so)...
I'm having a problem with my cube.
The yellow side seems to be having a problem.
When you turn the yellow side, the screw that's on the center piece, either screws itself or unscrews itself.
and by that i mean if I turn it clockwise, then it screws itself and if I turn it counter clockwise then it unscrews itself, making the cube to fall apart.
I made a video of it so that you guys could understand better, what is going on.
Here it is:

Thanks for taking the time to read the whole thread and I would like to apologize for any grammatical mistake you may find in this thread.
Regards from Argentina.

Sounds to me like you're core is stripped. Basically the core has a hole that the screw on each side screws into. The threads inside that hole have been stripped. It's fixable, but you may be better off just buying a new core. I recommend a Cube for You core and spring set http://www.cubedepotusa.com/apps/webstore/products/category/338463.

If you'd rather just fix it you could try a little drop of either glue or locktite in the hole of the core and then threading the screw into it.

Hope that helps.
