The back cover is a bit tight but should come off with a little bit of force. There is a slot at top right hand side on rear to put your nail in to start it off then when started pull the cover straight back, don't worry it feels like it shouldn't come off but just pull at it and it will release.
The joystick tends to be a bit of a problem on the K series. It's not so much the build quality - it is extremely strong and durable.
The main weakness of the joystick is the poor shielding from dead skin etc that falls into the gap, floats around, and gathers in the base of the joystick. This gums up the joystick, meaning it needs to be pressed HARD to push through the **** and operate the micro switch.
It is impossible to clean with brushes, cotton buds, cmopressed air etc. The crud needs to be broken down and washed away. The simplest way to do this is with electronic contact cleaner. This stuff comes in a spray can, with a long thin tube that fits into the trigger head.
This is what you do:
Go here to learn how to dismantle your cell (that link suits K750/W800).
Once you have the cell in pieces, grab the mainboard and contact cleaner and come back here.
Fit the tube to the triggerhead and spray the contact cleaner deep into the base of the joystick. Blast it in there for a few seconds then let it drain a bit, then repeat several times. Then repeat. And again. Get rid of all that crud messing up your beautiful cell
You'll feel a bit freaked out using contact cleaner. It runs off the circuitboard like water or very fine oil and you can't help but wonder if it's going to cause damage. But the beauty of contact cleaner is it evaporates without leaving any residue, and so it won't damage the mainboard at all. It also shouldn't set off water damage indicators.
Don't spray it on the lcd though (just incase - my k700 one went a bit funny, but then came good after a day). Keep the lcd away from the spray area.
Give the board a minute or two, then reassemble phone and test joystick. You should find a radical improvement. If still not 100%, try the whole process again, untill you can get no more improvement.
If after that it still isn't working properly, then your up for a new mainboard or to have a new joystick soldering in.
Hope that helps any game peeps out there who wanna fix their joysticks themselves.
no easy way carefully try to remove the panel from the top enough to reach inside and pull the latch rod with your hands by lifting a little bit on the top of the panel it should pull away from the door
If your chair is run by a Pilot VSI controller, the error code----3 red/4 yellow/ 1 green---indicates a controller failure. I am having controller problems of a different kind on a Jazzy 1107 and it appears that few shops will work on the controller. Replacement is very costly.
There Is A Way To Remove The Cover So You Could Remove The Front, Or If You Get Some Sort Of Rounded Clamp Or Something That Will Not Crack. then pull it outwards. or take it into a phone shop and they could easily remove the cover.
I had this same problem with my 360 controller (after modding it, but the solution should be the same..) If you pull up on any 360 joystick it will stick the same way.
The quickest fix would be to take some sandpaper on the inside of where the joystick touches the controller shell, sand it down just enough so the joystick is moving smoothly.
More professional ways would be to cut the little piece of metal that sticks out and goes into the joystick. Just a very small amount, too much will make it hard to press the right thumbstick button. You could also try some old fashioned grease, just a little bit on the inside, nothing noticeable from the outside.
Also make sure the controller is put back together right, I've taken apart many 360 controllers and sometimes joysticks stick when there's a wire in the wrong place and the shell won't close all the way. (The rumble motors particularly). Hope this helped!
