Introduction

The LED lights on the speaker are what make the letters SOL light up multicolored when powering on the device. Within the device, these lights are held in place by a white strip attached to the motherboard.

When working with electronics, it's important to choose a tool that's ESD-safe to avoid accidental damage to the device. The regular black nylon spudger or a plastic opening tool should be used whenever possible. Insert the tip of a plastic opening tool or spudger into the the middle groove along the edge of the device.
