My T6220 was submerged in water. I waited approx 2 weeks for it to dry out. It will not power up and suspect it is a lost cause however I would like to disassemble to see if I can "clean it up". Removed battery cover and two screws but cannot get upper portion to release. Any ideas? Thanks
Open the battery cover, unscrew the two screws towards the bottom. about mid-way up, there is a slot on either side of the radio under where the battery cover would have covered.. there are two tabs that need to be pressed outwards to release the middle. using a small screwdriver (or a blade) gently lift up the plastic display cover- it is only about the thickness of a dime so just barely get an edge and pry upwards.. this will reveal another two screws, unscrew those and you should be all set!
Hi, you might want to try (since it is a lost cause) submerged it again in clean water but rather than wait 2 weeks, force dry the entire assembly using hot or plain compressed air and then plain air dry the circuitry. Personally, I also use a solvent and a toothbrush to clean the printed circuit board. Normally after removing the screws, the two halves of the unit is still locked in place by snap hook(s) that is further away from where the screw holes are. To force it to open, you need to slide between the two halves something to pry it open. Care should be exercised cause cases have been known to crack using this method. Also it can not be helped but get scratches and cuts on the surface of the 2 covers. Likewise, carem must be exercised not to cut or huert yourself. Good luck and hope this be of some help to you. Please let me know how this turns up. Regards.
