This Post will show my disassembly process as well as screenshot of main components and tips and tricks.
The main structure of the Tivoo is not glued, it consist of some snap locks and screws.
The first step is to remove the knobs, there are two knobs in the unit, those you just need to pull with a bit of force and they will slide of, they are held in place only by pressure and friction so very safe to remove.
Second step is to remove the plastic faceplate. This is the trickiest part, as the face plate is attached with latches.
In the next picture I highlighted the latches.
To start disassembling the device, I started from the knob corner moving up using a guittar pick.
Once the faceplate is removed, the tivoo looks like this.
After that the tivo screen is composed of 4 components.
The following images is the device after removing the Glass
The following image is the device after removing the diffuser
The following image is the device without the grid mask.
Here are the images of all the 4 components of the screen.
Here is other shot of the LED display turned off.
To continue the disassembly process, we need to remove some 6 screws pointed in the next screenshot.
from this point the screen is just held in place by friction against some panne like material. to extract the screen I used one screw driver in one of the holes and pulled as follows.
After that you can just unplug the two wires, the big one is power and data, the small one is the microphone.
Here is another picture of the main board of the screen. (The following picture is highRes so you can see the components.
In the case you can see the main battery (a lithium 18650 w 3000mah), the speaker and another board behind the battery (hard to see). You will also see other two screws that need to be removed to continue with the disassembly.
After that you can remove the inner assembly from the outer case.
Now to open the inner assembly you need to remove itehr 4 screws.
After that you will need to remove other three screws that attach the circuit boar to the assembly and unglue the battery.
To Remove the battery I just gently moved until the glue broke. Also note that the board itself have some of the same glue, so you will need to pull it gently until the glue gives up after removing the 3 screws from the picture.
Here you can see the board separated from the assembly.
Next Here I add some high resolutions from the front and back of the circuit board.
That will be all in this entry, thanks
