UX2 DIY repair - how to open it
by jdubin on 2009-03-19 15:31:46.6410

Hi folks,

I have a UX2 which has a flaky line out, and instead of trying to send it in for repair (I'm sure it's far out of warranty and would cost a fortune), I'd rather just crack it open and replace the 1/4" jack myself.  Thing is... I'd rather not literally *crack* it open.  Anyone have any tips on how to (gently) open the case to get to the innards?  I can't seem to find any obvious means to do so.



After trying desperately to pry the thing open with a putty knife (ala mac mini), I finally figured it had to be held together by the nuts on the 1/4" jacks.  I was right -- unscrew the nuts, remove the plastic pieces surrounding the jacks, and remove the four screws on the XLR connectors.  That's it.  I'm glad I didn't apply too much pressure trying to pry it open!

Thanks a lot, man! I'd never thought those nuts were not part of the jack input. Spilled some water on my UX2 and was trying to clean it. Thanks to you it is now as good as new
