---+!! Repair your JBR V1 battery connectors %TOC% ---++ Symptoms A loose battery connector can give all kinds of weird behaviour: * Drastically lowered battery runtime * It shuts down or reboots when you squeeze the bumpers * It refuses to start up, saying something like this: <verbatim> HD register error SC1 (85) 128 SN1 (170) 128 SC2 (170) 128 SN2 (85) 128 </verbatim> ---++ Performing the surgery First you open up your recorder, this is described [[DisassemblePlayer][here]]. This picture shows you the two solder joints that most often are broken. <a href="%ATTACHURLPATH%/solderjoints.jpg"><img src="%ATTACHURLPATH%/solderjoints_t.jpg" alt="Solder joints" width='400' height='183' border='0' /></a> Now you fire up your soldering iron and resolder the joints. Make sure that the PCB really is connected to the metal housing. <a href="%ATTACHURLPATH%/solderjoints2.jpg"><img src="%ATTACHURLPATH%/solderjoints2_t.jpg" alt="Solder joints" width='284' height='200' border='0' /></a> Once you have resoldered all joints, reassemble the recorder and start it up. The reassembly is described here. Good luck! _Linus_
