OK here's an unusual one for you..... How on earth do you get inside a PIX 501? I have one here, my old one in fact, and I need to fix a dry joint on the power input. Question is, how do you open the case without scratching the bejeezus out of it?! I have undone the single black machine screw on the underside near the front but nothing seems to be budging.

Not too technical this one eh?!!

Ofcourse, put a request to close this question since you found the answer yourself. The question will be closed and point refunded.

Point refunded = Point awarded :-)

Doesn't quite work that way.... Points refunded are negated from the EE databse and put back into your 'pot'. For points to be awarded to you, your answer has to be 'accepted' and you cannot accept your own answer. :)

Only kidding, I didn't really expect to get the points! :-)

Must say though, I think the explanation in the document that I quoted was overly simplistic. It says something like: "remove the single screw holding the two parts of the case together, then put the device on a steady surface and pull the top part of the case forward away from the bottom part". Clearly this was written by a pathological optimist! There is no way on earth that one could pull the thing open using only force of bare hands - in the end I had to stick a small screwdriver in the seam between the two halves of case and gently prise it open, still scratching the paint a little....

You know, the 'tech writers' won't have seen a box in 'real' ;-) Gotta bear that...
