Inleiding

Has the battery life of your device become unusable? Does the battery seem to refuse to charge? A faulty battery is possibly the cause of these power issues. As the battery undergoes more cycles, it holds less charge.

  1. Insert the plastic opening tool in the crack in between the cover and the rubber spine with the power button. Pry off the cover, beginning with the side without the volume and bluetooth buttons. When prying the cover off, the six clips (three along each side of rubber spine) that attach the cover to the speaker will make snapping sounds.

    • Pull the cover off with your thumbs.

    Important suggested edit to these instructions - make sure to pry off clips/ridges from BOTH sides before attempting removal of the cover.

    I interpreted these instructions as saying you only needed to pry clips from one side - then peel off cover. Doing this broke a clip from the other side. Bummer. I'd like others to avoid that.

    If you do break a clip - save it. They are relatively easy to glue back into the cover.

    My Flip4 had a single long clip on the non-button side that ran the entire length of the rubber spine. The other side (with play/ vol buttons) had three seperate clips (middle and both sides) as mentioned above.

  2. Remove four 13 mm JIS #0 screws attaching the rubber spine to the speaker, located on both sides of the inside of the speaker. Use the plastic opening tool to release the clips holding the central part of the rubber spine. Pry away one end of the rubber spine with your thumbs and it should come off.

    • Prying off the spine may take some persuading.

    • The speakers are strong magnets. Keep it away from other sensitive electronics.

    Suggested Edit : Be careful when removing the screws that they don't get attracted to the speaker (magnet). They can scratch the speaker.

    Note : screws don't need to be removed from their “channel” (it’s quite difficult). Just unscrew fully and leave in channel.

    The end cap has some kind of adhesive on it. I’m a strong guy and couldn't pull it off. Sliding a plastic pry tool around the edge helped break the adhesive and make it removable.

    In my case there was no way to get the Battery out this way as it was a bit bloated and thus stuck.

    By removing the cap on the other side and removing the Charging Port I was able to push it out with the thick side of my screwdriver.

    I also have a slightly other version of the body where the caps are hold by a rotation/clipping mechanism not by screws

    Similar to the other comment - I agree - this step was incredibly difficult. It took me about an hour of gentle prying, wiggling, and forceful pulling to get it out. In the end, VERY cautiously using a pair of broad nosed pliers was what allowed me to pull out it.

    Bloating I'm sure does play a role - but I think the main factor is the foam wrapper around the stock battery. It makes it stick to the battery channel.

    You have to be extremely cautious when doing this step, as you don't want to rupture the battery but need to apply a considerable amount of force to get it out with not much leverage for your hands.

Is the battery glued into the socket like the Flip 3?

Kenneth - Antwoord

No it isn’t. but the black rubber around it makes it really hard to get out. try to push it from the otherside by removing the charging-port.

Be careful not to pierce the battery

très bon tutoriel, toute l’opération réussie à un bémol prêt, ma batterie aurait chauffé (?) et demeure inextricable de son logement soit elle a gonflé sous l’effet de la surchauffe, soit la bande noire en caoutchouc des extrémités de la batterie ont fondu.

Philippe - Antwoord

Am I correct to assume that the speaker will no longer be water proof after performing this? or would it still be able to keep the water out even after the repair?
