Has anyone attempted taking one of these apart before? The data jack has come loose from the circuit board. I can transmit shot string data via the USB connection to my laptop/PC only if I apply slight pressure on the jack but what a royal P.I.T.A. I noticed in the battery compartment, a single Philips head screw. Is this the main point to separate the two halves or is there anything else I should look for? I'm a wiz with a soldering iron and circuit boards. The repair seems to be an easy fix.
I considered doing an RMA return to Competition Electronics, but the turnaround time and cost is unacceptable.
I hope someone can give me some advice before I try the repair solo and learn the hard way.
It is a snap fit after you get that screw out (pry carefully with a small flathead near the corners). I will have to open a different computer to find pics but I have some, and may have posted earlier. Take a pic as soon as you open it to see the board and ribbon cable layout.
That said, their factory service was excellent and both cost and turnaround time were under the website estimates. There was also a very helpful tech guy available by phone,surprisingly directly. I got the impression they didn't see service as a profit center and would help you by phone if they could.
Finding those photos will be more difficult than I thought, but they exist. I don't think they were ever on PB anyway. I will post if I can find.
