FiiO E12DIY Limited Edition Version---DIY your own sound ! - Page 63

post #931 of 1661

i dont know if they will take care of this or not

 

as i have already opened the seal and "filed" the case for muses01

 

it is my fault, that i didn't even test the unit first before i opened it up and start the case filing.

and rigjtbefore i first tested it, i changed the op amp to the 1611

 

i wonder if they will say, OO you damaged the unit already, you are on your own now.

They said warranty won't cover after the seal is broken, but they didn't say they won't help you repair it, even for a fee. Plus, there is no point guessing - just email them and see. Maybe they will consider it an exception and give it a warranty repair. You'll never know if you never asked.

Hi all,

 

Trying to read all messages in this thread, from latest going backwards, just halfway through at page 50 so not sure if this question was already covered:

 

Another newbie question, how does one completely remove the casing for grinding?  Does one just completely pull the entire inner board from the outer casing?

 

Cheers,

Rene

Yes, with care and a little push from the battery side also helps.

Hi everyone

I joined the club and I need some help here. Does this BrownDog adapter with the OPA627 will work directly on the Fiio Diy without any soldering?

thx

@jorge8 That adapter looks to be the same dimensions as the ones included from Fiio. Did you realise they provide a few empty adapters with the DIY? You don't need to buy an adapter unless you want a different brand or if you need more than the number supplied.

Also note that you can ONLY use BrownDog dual-channels SOIC to DIP8 adapter (*this) for E12DIY. The one you linked is for two single channel SOIC to DIP8 (singles-to-dual), and it will NOT fit inside E12DIY. Anytime you need to mount two single channel SOIC, you need to use the special adapter included with your E12DIY.

oo my god... this is going  to be .... stupid....

I just found out what happen to my E12 DIY...

 

 

the battery didnt plug in tight!!!!!!!!!!

i un screwed the metal plate that hold the connector, and then replug, then screw that plate back in!!

 

it has been running for 10 min now... no shut down!!!!!!!!!!

 damn it

 

I have ordered a second E12 DIY! lol

 

 

i think this is going to be bad....i may go buy a muses02 also and plug that into my second E12 DIY>>>>>

by the way i am using the E12 DIY now. with my cheap old HM-601 player,

even with that bad player it still sound pretty decent with my alpha dog!

post #943 of 1661

@ loquah, I noticed, but I'm not a full diy'er. I don't have neither the equipment nor the skills to do a proper soldering job...  :tongue_smile:

This is what Fiio replied
"
Yes, we will not provide the warranty service for the E12 DIY. If your E12 DIY is confirmed to be defective and you really want to have it repaired, then we may help you repair, but you should pay for the repair fee. If any inconvenience, pls understand!
"
I do understand, I can only say I am really unlucky, for getting a bad one.
I think I may not bother sending it in, which will cost me another 20-30 on shipping and then repair cost .

I will try to confirm if was the battery issue or not,
If the battery is good ,
Atleast I can still keep the battery, the case
