Although I don't have a manual you asked for, it should be fairly straightforward. Both front and rear panel are held via four bolts each, and upon removing them the main PCB should easily slide outside.
i think the volume pot holding screw has to be removed as well... and then there are those finicky switches.

any idea why there was no sound all of a sudden and now it's back again? Ghost in the Machine (pun intended)?

Yes, a smal screw holds volume knob in place and has to go too.

Although I have no idea what could cause this, you might want to let our support team know about this: https://support.ifi-audio.com

How reliable has the Ifi Micro Black label been for everyone? I bought a used unit that came with the blinking blue light and then the blinking red and blue light which meant it wouldnt work on battery power. I sent it to ifi to get a new battery but it must have been pcb, usb power issue or something because I was told the pcb was reseated and had the micro sent back free of charge but with the same issues. Still battery wont charge but now I can get it to work on a charging brick. However now I cant get it to work off of the charging brick anymore. I get blinking lights. I let it charge overnight, I unplug and replug cables, but still the unit wotn work again.

I want a new unit but I dont want to be stuck with this issue again. I've read that some other people have had this issue and would like to know how wide spread it is before I consider buying another ifi micro bl. I like how it sounds but I dont like that it can possible have issues down the road considering the price.

Although I can't give you specific numbers, % of faulty micro iDSD BLs is very low and in the range where it should be considering how many were sold (lots!!!). Getting a new unit also means warranty, so this makes things easier in the event of any failure. Additionally, you might want to take a look at our micro iDSD Signature which effectively replaced micro iDSD BL.
