DIY Repair instructions (for out of warranty Active 10 and Active 12 devices).


As of 31/05/20 we have stopped our paid for repairs service for out of warranty Active 10 and Active 12 devices. For this reason, we will be selling casework parts so that users who are capable of performing a DIY repair or minor damage to their device can purchase these parts and perform the repairs themselves using the instructions below. 

Please note that there are no longer any front clams left in stock.


Step 1: Remove the protective film on the inside of the inner screen.


Step 2: If repairing an Active 10, remove the three rubber screen supports to the left, right and above the inner screen. If repairing an Active 12, leave these attached to support the narrow screen.


Step 3: Place the small joystick-extender in the rubber whole. Make sure the square hole is facing towards you so that the joystick on the motherboard can be fitted into it.


Step 4: Rest the antenna in the top of the front casework. We would recommend using some adhesive to hold it in place stop the antenna from rattling when the device is shaken.


Step 5: Place the TFT screen face down into the front casework with the motherboard on top. The antenna can then be plugged into the motherboards' connector at the top left.


Step 6: Make sure the seal around the front casework is in place and then push the back casework on. Once the two casework parts are connected, you can then use the four supplied screws to screw closed the casework. Do not overtighten the screws.


Please note: All repairs done at home will not be covered by any warranty.
