Question about JBL (JBLRADIALWHT) Speaker System, Docking Station Adapter for Apple iPod
I have a JBL Radial micro black speaker. part number: TK957VC/A and I have a classic ipod, the docking part, where the ipod sits down and connects got loose little by little and finally came off. How can I fix this?
This connector is available complete with pcb from jbl service center.But radial is very difficult to open.You need to open the mesh with a hair dryer,because it is heavely glued with hot glue on the borders.you will find screws inside.And also from the bottom & sides you have to remove this decorative strip.
it is very time consuming & headache.
i have myself replaced five of this docking sockets,it will take minimum of two to three hours to do this

I had the same problem. You can access the top of the circuit board by very carefully peeling off the saddle-like part that has "JBL" printed on it and contains the volume control. It is glued on by two adhesive strips under the top. The adhesive strips start just behind each volume control button and run toward the rear. Good luck repairing the connector - metal pins guide it into place on the board, but the connections are very fine and hard to reconnect - I'm not sure if they just rely on pressure contact or if they have very fine solder or some kind of conductive adhesive. I could not make the dock work consistently, but the audio input still functions.
To further disassemble the unit, you have to remove the mesh screen on the back side of the unit, then you can access the screws that hold the two halves of the donut together. I was able to do that by prying on the bottom edge with a knife. The screen is glued in place and has some little tabs as well.
