Thanks to a corrupt EEPROM, I recently had to remove and replace the motherboard of my RNS-E. These boards were remarkably helpful (as was "Rabbit" (a.k.a. Cem Ozkan) who supplied the replacement motherboard) but what was lacking was a comprehensive, step-by-step account of how to crack open the RNS-E and replace the motherboard.

I've taken my best shot at it if (and I hope you don't have to) you have to replace your RNS-E motherboard. You can access and download the PDF here:

Good luck!

Nice write up and a good guide for those who want/need to replace parts on their RNS-E.

Evan,
Wow. Killer writeup -- and quite comical too! I hope I never have to do that.

One suggestion for anyone that has to go down this path:
Anytime you deal with a PCB (printed circuit board) or motherboard etc it is always recommended to use an anti-static wrist strap. What I would hate to see is a small amount of static electricity damage any one of those tiny components. They are usually only $15 at most places online.

Glad that everything is back to normal. I'll send you some other ideas on the ticking issue via email.

Well done!!
