Perhaps you're referring to the JBRFM/V2? I can assure you that with
the original recorder, the JBR, all the jacks can be soldered without
disassembly. I've done dozens of 'em. See my earlier note, subject
line "Arrrrghh" for details on how to strengthen the joints.

Never worked on a player so I can't comment there.

I have disassembled the unit, but am trying to figure out the best way to get inside there to resolder the jack. Initially, it looked like I could loosen the two solder joints to the battery rail and remove the printed circuit board on the end of the unit to get in there...However, I melted that solder, but the pcb did not come loose.
