How to open up case of H100 - faulty jack socket
Hi there, my H100 works fine except that the headphone socket is worn and sound is intermittent. I am hoping to open up the case to access the female socket and squeeze the contacts so they hold onto the jack more tightly. Has anyone opened the case successfully? I don't want to break any plastic lugs or contacts.

I mostly use the player for listening to audio books. If I do have to get a new player I would like one that you could bookmark where you are on a file but I haven't seen any with that feature.

sorry for resurrecting an old thread... possible solution, torx screwdriver?

I'm not sure about the H100 you're speaking of, can't tell if you mean H100 as depicted here in the WayBackMachine: http://wayback.archive.org/web/jsp/I...sp%3Fidx%3D342

but it looks like an earlier version of an H120, or H140.

Those two (and probably the H100) open up with very tiny Torx screwdriver tips, all the same size, (4) for each end cap, (2) very tiny ones on the side rails, and a few on the internals of the PCB...

Good Luck to you or whoever needs this info

Yes, a T5 if I remember correct. I have one that you can have if you are interested. It is fairly easy to open, but I don't know how accessible the leads are that you need to squeeze.

When I get time (and if you need it) I can explain or post a guide on how to do this. You actually don't need to replace the jack at all but you do need to desolder it and bend the contact pins out a little bit (from underneath the jack). They just get bent in over years of use. The pain is removing the LCD to do this...it has some hidden solder points for the backlight LCD on the side.
