Question about Philips GoGear ViBE Digital Media Player
Removing casing from gogear vibe 4gb
I was trying to find a way to take this apart as well, because a soda exploded inside my car while I was away for about 6 hours, and when I came back it was covered in sticky goo, inside and out. After a little fiddling, it was easy to take apart and reassemble.
On the back, remove the barcode sticker, there is a single very small screw. Remove that. You will need a very thin-shafted cross-headed screwdriver. After its removed, take a razor and slide it into the small crack in the casing closest to screw housing, and pop the back off.
After the back is off, there are 4 more screws to remove, 2 black screws near the bottom, and two smaller silver screws on the top, one on each side of the LCD screen. You may need tweezers to remove the smaller silver screws.
After all 4 screws are removed, take your razor and slide it in between the top of the LCD screen and the casing and pop it out. Take note at how it is removed, because it needs to be reinserted the same way.
If you need to remove the directional pad, its a bit tricky. I used my tweezers to pop the two tabs on the left out, and then popped the rest out going clockwise. It takes some time and patience, because the tabs might pop back in.
There you have it. Not difficult at all.
