Question about Marantz PMD660 Digital Voice Recorder
The headphone socket has become detached from the casing and is therefore unable to be used because it is inside the unit. In an attempt to open the case, I unscrewed the the fixing screws under the casing and beneath the batteries. However this did not enable the casing to be opened so that the headphone socket could be reattached to the casing.
I didn't wish to make matters worse by being too heavy handed at this point.
Is there such a thing as a technical manual which explains how to get at the internal workings of the unit? Or can anyone describe the procedure from previous experience?
Thanks allot in advance :-)

OK, took back off, thank you for your advice, it was the battery box screw that was holding the back on. Then removed two cables, (one ribbon, one brounding) the volume control pot and cable assembly, but now there is still something holding the front of the machine (at the top) in place. I can't see in there, tried pinching it, but don't want to break the plastic. You have to get the front off to resolder the headphone stereo mini jack back onto the card.
What's next? What am I missing?
Thanking you in advance

I have 2 of thexe pmd660's - both are down with the same problem. I work at an NPR station, this is becoming embarassing. Is this a design flaw or what?

I was having the same problem, but finally got it to crack open gracefully. There are quite a few screws, maybe about 7 of them. Once you get all of them out (including that one beneath the battery), pry open from XLR side. It should go up a good few degrees. From there, it should just come apart.
The headphone jack is a few layers in and you'll have to undo cables and one ***** towards the front, but on the inside. It holds the push tab to eject card.
