Introduction

It is shown step by step the complete disassembly of the device. Since there was no sign of life any more, I took it apart. The problem was finally a loose plug, which stopped the power supply of the device. The example shown here is unfortunately broken off from the outer shell, but this should not change the procedure.

Disable any power supply: Remove the battery by prying up the rear cover on the two slots

The metal grille, in the front of the device by pry remove. Here is a thin plastic or metal object to use (in the picture is a letter opener to see), a coin is actually too thick. This can be a little hard! It is almost impossible to damage the plastic body easily. There may be a splice on the floor, but in my case it did not resist.

With a PH1 screwdriver, the two remaining screws which hold the two larger boards arranged above each other can be removed. The flat white plugs can be removed with a screwdriver from the board. The width on the left edge of the device is held in place with a brown clip that can be easily pulled out. Thereafter, the flat cable is directly loose.

When removing the board, be sure to watch out for the soldered cables, which will not let you play too much. Below are two black spacers (plastic) to light. Can be removed by hand or with tweezers.

The assembly is actually the same backwards.
  • The assembly is actually the same backwards.

  • Clean the area around the controls THOROUGHLY because they are otherwise always "activated".

  • Be sure to pay attention to the flat cable on the left side of the device! This was the one that caused problems for me.
