The Audio Adapter is used to connect your headset to the controller, which then sends and receives the audio from your gaming device. The Adapter Audio Jack Board is what connects your headphones to the Audio Adapter. If this is broken, then no signal will come to or from the headset from the controller.

This device has seven screws with three different kinds. To avoid confusion when reassembling the device, please use the Magnetic Project Mat or something that can organize the smaller parts when disassembling.

Wedge the Plastic Opening Tool below the plug, between the bottom plate and the body.
  • Be firm but controlled with the Spudger. Excessive force may cause tool marks or even crack the plastic causing structural damage.

  • The clips on the inside the bottom cover attaching to the bottom of the device may make removal difficult. Be patient and work slowly.

  • Wedge the Spudger at an upward angle in between the two pieces of plastic above the audio jack (be careful, but this may take a firm push).

  • Then gently point Spudger at a downward angle into the gap between the bottom cover the rest of the device. Take care to work the Spudger all the way in between pieces when doing so.

  • Use the Spudger as a lever and gently pop the bottom cover over the lip of the audio jack.
