Need help - remove front panel/cover from TRC-216 hand-held

#408406

Post by wb0gaz »

Looking for help - more of a repair type question.

I have a Realistic TRC-216 hand-held and I need to remove the front panel from the body so I can get at (and remove) the PC boards inside. The rear cover (which includes the AA-cell battery holder) is easily removed (three screws) but the front cover/face has no visible fasteners.

If you know where I could go for advice on this (or can suggest how to proceed), I'd appreciate any advice.

Thanks!

443 is right, everything is accessed through the back.
