Question about JBL (JBLRADIALWHT) Speaker System, Docking Station Adapter for Apple iPod
My model has a rubber mat underneath - remove it and there are no screws. No visible means of opening it up; anyone know?
I have a two JBL radial and stage micro, both with the same loose connection problem after two years. The stage micro was simpler to open and it was necessary just to re-soldering the connector. Now, it is working great. Regarding the Radial, this is another history… as explained in this forum, everything is glued. I was unable to access the circuit board following the explanation posted by other persons. In fact, the plastic cover with the JBL printed logo is glued and also has two screws. Unfortunately, you will need a good time, some hours in fact, to open the Radial. The best way is remove the back mesh screen. You will need a hair dryer to soft the glue and using a small screwdriver you will need to pull out carefully all the screen. From there, you will be able to access the screws. It will be necessary to unscrew and unglue different parts if you don’t want to scratch the Radial body.

I had the same problem. You can access the top of the circuit board by
very carefully peeling off the saddle-like part that has "JBL" printed
on it and contains the volume control. It is glued on by two adhesive
strips under the top. The adhesive strips start just behind each
volume control button and run toward the rear. Good luck repairing the
connector - metal pins guide it into place on the board, but the
connections are very fine and hard to reconnect - I'm not sure if they
just rely on pressure contact or if they have very fine solder or some
kind of conductive adhesive. I could not make the dock work
consistently, but the audio input still functions.
To further disassemble the unit, you have to remove the mesh screen on the back side of the unit, then you can access the screws that hold the two halves of the donut together. I was able to do that by prying on the bottom edge with a knife. The screen is glued in place and has some little tabs as well.

My name is Dis.
I had a problem with my JBL radial,my little brother had broken the connector of this station.i looked for some information how to open this devil machine :D to repair it. Followed the lots of solutions...have taken out all 20 screws which are lokated underneath. But I only found the subwoofer ... And I thought that this is the end(((( then I followed the tradition Russian method,tried to do smth with the help of a screwdriver. And I succeeded. Near the connector,there are two holes. Used the screwdriver like a lever and opened the plug which is around the connector. And here it is! I've got the access to the dock board.)))and the last what i need to do is to use soldering to braze connector's contacts)))) good luck)) if you have any questions,write me an e-mail,i'll try to help you))
