Hi there! I have a problem with a loose pin in the charging point of my Arnova so want to replace the socket. I have a plan to either replace with a similar connector or with a micro-usb connection (both on order from ebay)
I notice a few people on the forum have disassembled their tabs but cannot find a disassembly guide, can any one offer some advice? I have removed 6 visible screws and checked under the rubber feet for any other screws but cannot get the housing apart! Have I missed something or is it just a matter of prising the housing apart?
Any assistance would be greatly appreciated! I will also keep you posted on my success (or failure :P) of my power socket repair.
I have just posted a reply under the PCB mounted DC power socket thread regarding dissasembly of the 10G2. I did not notice this thread or would have put it here.
Hopefully the info will help you, but if you need any further help, just ask and I will try to give you any advice I can.
The main thing is to take your time and be gentle with the connectors, ribbon cables etc, nothing should need much force to remove. The casing is clipped together as you suspected, but does come apart with a little persuasion
Check out the PCB DC connector thread.
Good luck with your repair!
I've got a similar problem, someone didn't like the untidy way it was plugged in and dropped it. This snapped off the centre charging pin. I've found it comes apart O.K. but I'm bit amazed that the main connection between the two halves appears to be two surfaces taped together rather than a plug and socket. There are also a couple of the normal push fit interboard connectors. Like all modern equipment you can't be too careful, its not really designed to ever be taken apart. After seeing a few posts with a similar problem it looks like the charging socket is not the most robusat item. I might run some leads out to a different socket, although that will spoil the looks.
