Démontage de la carte
by: Fred

Bonjour,
Confronté au même problème, à savoir comment réparer l'alimentation de mon dolphin 2001. J'ai retiré le mastic epoxy avec un cutter et une spatule. J'ai longé l'espace entre la plaque métallique et la grille plastique. Attention, à l'emplacement des petits rectangles situés sur la grille, vous avez des vis qui maintiennent la grlle plastique et la plaque métallique. J'ai aussi essayé de ramollir le mastic mais il y avait un gros risque de faire fondre la grille plastique. Une fois les 4 vis situées sous le mastic au milieu de chaque côté de la grille, passez la spatule en commençant par un angle entre l plaque métallique et la grille en plastique. L'ensemble se détache tout seul.
Translation: Hello,
Faced with the same problem, how to fix my 2001 dolphin. I removed the epoxy putty with a cutter and a spatula. I worked along the space between the metal plate and the plastic grid. Attention, at the location of the small rectangles located on the grid, you have screws that hold the plastic grlle and the metal plate. I also tried to soften the putty but there was a big risk of melting the plastic grid. Once the 4 screws are located under the putty in the middle of each side of the grid, pass the spatula starting with an angle between the metal plate and the plastic grid. The set comes off on its own.

Opening up the Power supply #9995678

rick (middletown, nj),
Thank you for posting the pictures. It was very helpful to know where the 4 screws are.

I started removing the epoxy sealant over the screws with a dremel tool but that created a lot of messy plastic dust. I found that I could soften up the epoxy using a high watt soldering iron (60W instant trigger type) and then dig it out with a small flat blade screwdriver.

Once I removed the 4 screws the remaining epoxy still held tightly to the casing. Working a flat blade in between the epoxy and case I got some separation. Then lightly tapping (inside to outside) on the edge of the case continued to propagate the separation. Working my way around the case inserting flat blades as wedges and tapping I eventually freed the assembly from the case and was able to remove it.
