    How do you get it apart?

  • jwe11647 Feb 03, 2009

    Which is the back side? I have the two ends open. One end has four screws. The other end has none.. Do I need to remove these four screws?

  • jwe11647 Feb 03, 2009

    I can see no lock on the device I have. I have both ends open. One end has 4 tiny screws. The other end has none. Do I have to remove these four screws to get at the battery.

  • jwe11647 Feb 03, 2009

    The solution given by rockfixya did not help. He must be looking at a different device. The one I have only has screws on one end as I said. However, you did refer me to a site called Gigabeat surgery which contained pictures which I believe will enable me to remove and replace the battery. Thank you.

Replace the Battery Remove five screws: two on the side, two on the bottom and one on the back behind the lanyard hook. When that screw is removed, remove the lanyard hook insert.
Slide the metal backing down as shown in the photo. Then pull it straight up.
Unhook the ribbon connection attached to the metal backing by lifting up on the brown flap where the ribbon is connected. The ribbon will then slide out.
Pull the hard drive back as shown in the photo.
Remove two screws near the bottom of the player. One is on the bottom and one is on the right side near the battery switch.
The battery is now exposed. You can disconnect it by gently pulling on the red and black cables.

Thanks for using FixYa.

Cannot get my ILO to turn on, what do i need to do?


Remove the battery from the unit and hold the power button down. Replace the battery and try the unit. If it does nto turnon, replace the battery with new ones. If this does not work, buy a new unit becasue these are cheaper to replace than fix.

I have an Archos 5 250 Gb Model 6500 (pre Internet Tablet) and I was wondering if you know how to disassemble it so I can replace the battery.


Disassembling Archos will void device's manufacture warranty. You should not do it yourself. There is some parts are very fragile will cause a permanent damage to the device. I will not recommend for you to do it yourself.

Can you replace the battery of the sansa clip 2GB at home? What kind of battery do you need?


The Sansa Clip's internal rechargable battery is not user replaceable. However, if it fails within the warranty period (one year), the device can be replaced.Clip's battery is not easily replaceable however if it fails within the warranty period (one year), SanDisk will replace the device.
if you want to do it yourself you have to solder, and its difficult to reassemble it once you take it apart. check sandisk sansa clip disassembled here http://www.anythingbutipod.com/archives/2007/11/sandisk-sansa-clip-disassembled.php . hope this helps

My Samsung YP-U3 MP3 player went through the wash, help!


Have the unit be dry. If you can get a disassembly manual it better to dry the unit disassemble. But a high probability its battery is a goner.

The moment its get wet, you shouldn't try to switch it on, that could be disastrous to the unit. Let the unit still off or be off.

If your lucky after it is dry it will start. But as I've said battery could be dead or the unit is also get damage. Even only the battery is damaged, replacement could be hard to find.

So try to let it dry before opening it.

Replacing the battery in an Ipod


Yes, you can disassemble a 5th gen and replace your battery, HD, screen, just about any part you wish. What you will need is an "iTool" You can google it or try here Ipodbatterydepot
Or, if you're feeling adventurous you can use some small tools and watch the video - How to disassemble your 5th gen iPod

Once you start dis assembly of the unit you will see almost all of it(besides 6 small screws under the hard drive) un-snaps and snaps back into place again. Hopefully someone will find the vid and info as helpful as I did.

Problems with the headphone jack


you can try 2 things:
first thing:
remove the battery from the unit, if it is removable
grab some contact cleaner/rejuvinator and lightly coat a headphone plug with it, insert it into the headphone jack on the mp3 player and rotate it a few times, repeat 4-5 times.. then let everything dry for 5-10 minutes, pop battery back in and try it. if you don't have contact cleaner/rejuvinator, you can also use 70% or greater rubbing alcohol.

second thing:
if the first didn't work, you can remove the batteries, disassemble the unit, and replace the headphone jack itself. if you do not have experience with de-soldering, soldering, and potentially smd soldering techniques, i don't recommend this option. you may be able to get a local general electronics repair shop (tv/stereo) to replace the part for you for a nominal fee.

hope this helps,
trin
