NWZ-A816 Dismantle Instructions

Hi - I have a sony nwz-a816 which has suffered water damage so I want to take it apart and clean it. Taking the 2 screws out at the back frees it up a bit but not enough to get the back off fully - has anyone got instructions on how to dismantle it? Many thanks

    Solution not applicable - the first stage of getting the back off is what I'm in need of, and the link provided for the 'A' series isn't relevant as the nwz does not have the silver bit on the back referred to in the very first step. Hence the comment that 'the back should now slide off easily' is most definitely NOT the case! More help if poss pse?!

    Now THAT really looks like the biz! I'll give it a go and if it works post the acceptance. Really impressed with the speed with which you found it - many thanks.

There are 2 screws on the back bottom that must come out first. Then the rest of the back cover is held on by claws around the other three sides with 2 claws on the right side while looking at the back cover, 2 claws on the top, and one claw on the left side. These claws must be pried open, but this must be done with extreme caution or you may brake the claws. Each claw is a small plastic part that hooks into the front case by means of a plastic tab.

If this unit has water damage it is extremely unlikely that cleaning it will help to bring it back to life. Water damage is the kiss of death to electronics unless it is cleaned in the first few hours and even then it may not help. You will have many solder connections and circuit traces that are damaged beyond repair. The cleaning process will likely damage some of the very delicate circuit traces on the circuit board. I can get you the service manual if you want it, let me know.

Dear Sir,

you do not open it. Because risk of any cutting wires from board or any damage to board. It is a sensitive player. Better go for replacement. If it is worked or not?

thanks
good luck

Sony NWZ-A816 Cannot reconize any more by Win XP


You may have a defective MP3 player. I had one and had to send it back (it wouldn't show up on my laptop, and it manifested a graphical problem). If the company you bought it from is reputable they should refund you. ALWAYS be sure to buy expensive items like these ONLY from reliable sellers, even if they're a little more expensive than others!
