excellent that you guys figured out a possible solution, I've followed the DIY and simply heated up the larger solder points, some of them looked like they had black hairline fracture lines in them. Havent had a chance to put it back in yet but will report back on whether successful or not.

The trickiest part is prying open the box. I used soldering pen with a knife attachment, a screw driver and a pick tool. Also dont bother trying to cut into the epoxy resin with the solder, its rock solid.

I thought i would take some more pics for ppl thinking of attempting this, to make it clearer how to open the box. Hope this also helps:
