Tools Featured in this Teardown

Introduction

This is my first Teardown! Please don’t be negative about it. But, Constructive Criticism is welcome.

This teardown is not a repair guide. To repair your Sony Audio System RM-S100 Remote, use our service manual.

  1. On the back of the remote there will be a battery cover. Open it up.

  2. See the little tab?
    • See the little tab?

    • Don't break the tab when you open it. That will make it un-close-able!

    • Use your Spudger to open it up

    • Don’t snap your Spudger!

    • This is so incredibly hard to open. I recommend also using a 3.5mm Flat Head so you don’t snap your Spudger.

    • Voila! (Whatever that means...) Its open!

    • This is very hard to open without breaking the tab or your Spudger. The repairability score will take a hit.

    • Let’s start by removing the red thing.

    • You can remove it with your fingers.

    • Now pull out the PCB. (It is best to pull by the springs.)

    • Pull out the button pad.

    • Now, pull out the spring.

    • And thats it!

    • A total of 7 parts. (I was expecting more.)

    • I would give this a repairability score of 8 out of 10.

    • I almost Broke by Spudger =(

    • Insanely hard to open.

    • Easy to disassemble... once open.

    • No screws. (No Screws to lose! No need remember which screw goes where.)

    • Easy to assemble...unless the tab was broken.

Thanks! I would do more but I don’t have much junk to disassemble that I don’t need.

Hi @captainsnowball ,

FYI

voilà French exclamation - meaning “There it is!” or “There you are!”

The “red thing” in Step 3 is most probably an IR filter, to filter out visible light to improve IR operation
