 Post subject: Mirror Cube (Mirror Bumps) Center Parity? (1 center twisted)

Okay, so I have recently bought a [Moderator: KO] Mirror Cube, and it worked completely fine, but... After about 2 weeks, I find my cube scrambled on my table (My brother scrambles them all the time), I solve it, and one center is twisting 90 degrees, to where the little lines on it (Almost like aluminum brushing), don't match up with the actual cube. It does this to one center though... But, I can't do a 2 center twist, because it's one center, and I can't do a 180 twist, because it's turned 90 degrees... He could have popped it and put it together wrong, but I don't know. Is this a parity on the Mirror Cube or do I have to take it apart?

The lines show each of the sticker's orientation.

I have checked every single side of the mirror cube, and each center is rotated correctly except for the one center that is in the picture. Do I have to take it apart, or is it a parity? If it is a solvable parity, please provide algorithm, or at least how to fix it while solving, that would be nice. :)

There is no way to mismatch the grain of only one center. You'll need to pop a cap off and twist it 90 degrees.

Okay thanks, apparently there is no center caps (Pleasant surprise), so I had to take the whole top face apart, twist it one, put it back together... And, WOW, that one last edge piece..... I can't even explain how hard that was getting back in... I put my full body weight on it and it still wouldn't go in, so I had to take a needle vice grip (Never knew they existed until I looked through our family's tool box), stick it into the cube, put it apart, still had to force the edge in with my full body weight, then when it snapped in, I thought I broke it... But, anyways, thanks.
