    • Gently position the device so that the buttons and speakers lie face down.

    • Unplug the power cord from the "DC Input."

    • Remove the four 12mm phillips head #2 screws located along the outer edge of the white case.

    • Be careful! There are two small, easily-broken, plastic tabs at the bottom of the device keeping it together.

    • Once you remove the screws, pick the device up so that the grey label on the bottom of the device faces toward you.

    • With your thumbs on either side of the grey label, slowly push with both thumbs until the case pops open.

    • A small gap will open as the two tabs are released.

    • Do not pull the two halves apart yet. They are held together by the speaker wire.

    • Grip both sides of the top round part of the case and carefully open it like a clam. The bottom of the two halves are connected by the speaker wire. Do not separate by more than 1 centimeter.

    • Grip either side of the top round part of the case and carefully open the device to reveal all the hidden treasures inside!

    • Lay the device down, so that all the internal components are facing upwards.

    • Turn the device over so that the internals are facing down; the Light Intensity Dial will be facing you.

    • Remove the three 7mm Phillips #1 screws connecting the Zipconnect unit.

    • Turn the device over again so you are looking at the internals.

    • The Zipconnect unit will lift out but will still be attached by a wire connected to the motherboard.

    • Remove the six 7mm Phillips #1 screws attaching the Zipconnect unit to the motherboard wire and set the unit out of the way.

    • Next, disconnect the speaker wire from the motherboard by gripping the wires as close to the connection as possible and pulling the connector out.

    • Moving the connector back and forth as you pull will make removal easier.

  7. Sharper Image iPulse SI325 DC Input Replacement: step 7, image 1 of 1
    • Remove the two 11mm Phillips #1 screws attaching the small brown circuit board to the plastic case.

    • Also remove the four 11mm Phillips #1 screws attaching the motherboard to the plastic case.

    • Lift up on the motherboard and light intensity dial circuit board to expose the circuit board containing the auxiliary input, sub input, and DC input.

    • Remove the two 7mm Phillips #1 screws attaching the brown circuit board with all of the inputs.

    • Lift up the circuit board containing the Auxillary, DC, and sub inputs and move the lower case out of the way.

    • Turn the circuit board over so the solder is visible. Depending on which input is broken remove the solder connecting either the Auxillary, DC, or Sub input.

    • DC input

    • Auxillary Input

    • Sub Input
