At the back of the Player you'll find 4 #2 Phillips screws. Once undone you can slide the case ca. 1,5cm towards you. Now carefully pull the sides of the cover away from the body and lift the cover up.

    • Either you want to see everything and have some tools, then you can use step 4 and 5.

Just be sure, you have disconnected the white ribbon from the mainboard, so you wouldn't damage the connector while taking the front cover off. Now you have to get the metal spudger and gently work you way below the clips on the side and loosen them. Then the ones at the top but careful, there are two left and right of the disk tray looking a bit different and consisting entirely out of snappy plastic.

  • Now the front cover will tilt forward.

  • Either you take the lower clips of as well, but the entire cover might jump towards you (in this case you have to make sure again, the blue ribbon is disconnected) or you just work with the gap you just created.

  • Now twist the cover back on. Twist, because it might need some gentle force to get through the last couple of millimeters.

  • Now your HT-E5550 will no longer unwantedly cycle through the sources or open and close the disc tray. The downside is that the touch-controls won't work either.
