I did once, but from my previous post, I obviously don't remember.

      Hi Michael,

    Thanks. I started here (but I'm working on an AJBR20 and these plans
    are for taking apart an AJB6000):
    The first difference is that I have 6 "tabs" where the top board is
    soldered to the frame plus two solder connections on the end, near the
    microphone (holding the top board to the side board). I have removed
    all that solder and those spots now move freely.
    The second difference is that it says "carefully lift the top board
    while pushing down the CPU board below it". In my case, the USB
    connector on the end keeps the two boards stuck together. I can look
    inside and see that the 40 pin connector is nearly apart -- that's not
    what's holding them both together.
    I have removed the solder from the two tabs that (I think) anchor the
    USB connector to the top board, but that is apparently not enough. I
    think the trick must be to desolder the USB connector from the
    bottom. Has anyone else taken an AJBR20 apart?
