Remove silver side trim via 4 hex screws. The button strip and bezel assembly then easily lifts away. Unplug the connector on the right end to completely free the bezel.

Slowly and carefully pry front grill off by using a tiny jeweler's screwdriver, starting from the corners, and working your way around the sides and top (where trim and bezel will hide any plastic and grill gouging). It takes patience, gentleness, and lots of time to do it without damaging anything that will be seen. Eventually you can use a long flat blade to pry under the grill along the bottom, and where it wraps around iPod dock.

Use a very small jeweler's flat blade to pry out the 10 screw plugs that were under the grill. There's probably no way to get these out without gouging them, but the damage will be less obvious once the grill is back on. I even think it looks better to not have replaced the plugs.

Remove the 10 phillips head screws that were under the grill screw plugs, and also the 4 screws that were hidden by the bezel. Note that the two screws close to the LCD display are longer than all the others.

You do not need to remove the two screws that hold the back battery cover, in order to open the main unit.

Pry the two case halves apart with your fingers, held from the edges that were hidden by the silver side trim. There are various connectors and their adhesive dampening goo that will keep the case from completely separating.

To allow the two case halves to open more, hinging from the top collection of wires, it's helpful to release the iPod dock from the front half of the case. First, make sure the iPod dock is unlatched and in the out position. Note the two plastic pins on the sides of the dock carriage, that float around and are actually part of the latching mechanism as they run in the slots on the back half of the case. These pins can be pushed in so they are flush with the dock carriage's sides, allowing the carriage to slide out through the front of the unit. Just make sure they are swung out of the way of the slots on the front of the unit, or you won't be able to keep them pressed-in flush as they make their way through the front of the case.

    I'm trying to use this info on the Altec Lansing inMotion Max Multimedia 2.0 channel, on which the screws are hidden under thin double-sided sticky foam. Have located eight screws plus the four across the top and cannot open the back. Any ideas?

How to open panasonic sc-hc3

Model HC30DB dead; fuse in plug ok. My iPhone was docked so I had to open the door. The speaker covers do pop off, just persevere. Two screws in the CD bay; to open the door I found a small gap under the door and using a small screwdriver I could gently move a whitish cog in either direction and simultaneously applying a bit of pressure to the door, it released. Once inside, I found a glass fuse within the power supply casing, and the filament inside was melted. Now to source a new one.

My JVC UX-GP5 docking station no longer charges the ipod and also I have intermittnet connectivity issues

Unfortunately the UX-GP5 has a flimsy ipod connector. The connector is soldered to a small circuit board in the flip-down dock. After repeated use the connector wiggles and breaks free from the board. Various symptoms result depending on how many connections break. A replacement board is available from JVC in the US. The part number is GVA10161-A1. If you're tecnically proficient you can change it yourself by opening the cover on the docking door. It's held in place by two screws that are hidden under a glued metal strip at the back of the door (behind the ipod connector). Once you get that open it's a simple matter to unscrew and unplug the defective board.

IM600 does not switch on but green power charge button is displayed

I'm disassembling mine today, but am stuck getting the whole unit apart. I did take the two screws off in the back and that is where you'll find the lithium battery. It is attached with a standard cable that allows you to remove the battery and replace yourself with no tools required (aside from those two initial screws).

Will try to post my solutions later today if I get anywhere...FYI, if you get your unit wet, be sure to remove the battery as QUICKLY as possible, then let the unit dry out. Otherwise you'll be stuck with a dead unit like mine. You might be able to clean the green corrosion off the components inside that are causing the unit to short out (thanks to the battery being still connected while wet). That's what I'm trying to do as we speak.
