My Solemate did not react to anything. On/Off, USB Cable plug in - there was no active LED or any other sign of life.

After a complete disassembly and a deep look inside for broken solderings or something else i unsolderd the +(red) cable from the rechargeable battery pack.

After soldering it back - the device was fine again.

  4. Now you can see the Main PCB and the Battery. Here i could fix my problem of the not reacting device. I unsolderd the thicker red cable of the battery for a few seconds and soldered it back. that caused a hard reset. If this was your problem too, you can mount everything back.

  6. On the side of the "sub-woofer" you have to loosen 6 small srews with a Torx 6 screwdriver. Now you can pull apart the two half sides of the housing. Suprise: The "Sub-woofer" is not active. It uses the volume movement of the other speakers. That's why the half sides are very well sealed to each other. Now you can pull apart the two half sides of the housing.

My micro-usb was ripped from pcb with copper traces; I glued it back, scratched some solder mask to reveal copper traces, fluxed them and dragged solder from usb pins to traces. It’s so small I can’t really see which contacts are good, but… It does charge (for) now

[|i open mine n found something different]

There’s an identical cavity on the other side of the PCB, and another set of three contacts on the PCB on the other side marked + & -. I wonder if an original design called for 2 of these batteries? I wonder if one could wire up a second to those contacts and double the battery life?

Scott Remick - Contestar

Probably. Mine has a foam-padded nfc on that cavity, though I could fit a battery below the nfc board. Would have tried but don’t have extra battery handy.

My ripped micro-usb fix is so unstable that it might break any time anyway, so one battery will do
