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?!!

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....
