I have a s70 and all of a sudden the remote reboots every time i take it off the cradle. i have ordered a new battery but am worried there are other issues. can you please explain the fix you are referring to.
When I opened my S70 to apply the fix, I was able to fix the rebooting issue, but damaged the remote in numerous ways (USB port cover came out and could not refit, broke several of the contacts that hold the case closed, bent the pins that connect to the external charging points, pulled away the speaker cable and cannot reconnect) and whilst technically usable, it will no longer charge the battery.
I have since bought 2 more Nevo S70s, 1 to use and 1 more as a backup in case of problems. The 1st of these now has the reset issue and needs the fix to be applied and the 3rd one I bought is therefore now in use. My question is, is there someone in UK that is able to open my S70 and apply the fix without breaking it? I want to be ready in case the reset issue occurs on my 3rd remote.
Thanks for the advice. I successfully soldered an old battery wire between the two switch terminals after removing the switch.
Getting inside the Nevo S70 was simply a matter of removing the two screws inside the battery compartment at the bottom and 'leveraging' off the back of the case starting at the bottom and working up each side (having taken the battery out first). When the case is loose apart from the very top, the case slides downwards to allow it to be removed entirely. Be careful at this last point as there are two wires which run from the circuit board to the small speaker (which is fitted inside the back casing). There is a plastic lug which you can lever out on the circuit board to release the cable running to the speaker.
I found that an old 'kit' of levers and small screwdrivers which I had used to previously replace a broken Apple phone screen were perfect for this job. The screws as mentioned earlier in this thread and not normal ones but 'six sided' ones.
