Introduction

If the Sonos Play:1 has a damaged power/volume switchboard, this could prevent the device from powering on or off and could render the volume nonadjustable. To replace the switch board, remove the screws and protective plastic cover fastening the top cover to the speaker housing. Inside the cover lies the power/volume switch board.
