Subject: reassembling h140

reassembling h140

Hi list.
I am sorry for writing on this topic. However I am having real problems
getting my h140 reassembled.

I was wondering is there anyone in the UK who knows about assembling of
h140s who might be able to physically help?
I wasn't able to do any of the physical disassembly myself as I am blind, so
I got my dad to help.

the problem I am having is that my original player developed several
problems, the joystick was beginning to go, and the remote wasn't
functioning properly even on the original firmware. I tried with several
remotes, however the same problem seemed to be happening with all three, so
I knew it was a problem with the players boards.

So I got a new player from ebay.
I decided to install my old 2200 MA battery and my old hard drive into the
new player from ebay.

My old player disassembled fine using the guides from

However the player I got from ebay was a nightmare, I believe that the
original person who sold it to me must have got it second hand himself from
someone who tried to do stuff to it but didn't no what they were doing as
the threads on several screws were gone.

However eventually the player was disassembled. But then my dad found for
some reason he wasn't able to install the battery into the player from ebay,
and he can't seem to get it to go back into the original player it came

So at the moment both players are scattered over the table in bits, and we
don't have a clue what to do.

If there is someone in the UK who might be able to help that I could either
send the players to or deliver them in person I would be very grateful for
any help.
As I am now without an mp3 player.

I have asked on for some help, but thought I would ask on
this list as well.

I decided to post to this list as I thought this list would probably have
more people on it who know about the hardware side of stuff than the
ordinary users list.

Any advice would be very welcome.
