How to I take apart my Sony ICF-P26 am/fm pocket radio?

This is a great portable radio but after only 6 months the volume control potentiometer needs a clean. The volume jumps to maximum at some points in its travel. I think I can clean, or replace, the pot once I open the case but can't manage to open this case. I removed the two screws inside the battery compartment hoping that would allow the case to hinge open, but alas - no budge. It must be held by clips that grab on assembly. Any ideas? Here is what it looks like:

Thanks, Mike

PS: My device is not listed in your device list so had to select the wrong Sony radio to continue!

I navigated the clips and got the back off. Use thinnest jewellers screw driver to lift the edges. First clip is just north of the earphone jack / on off switch.Then took out the screw that holds the circuit board in place. So finally could see under the volume knob, but the design of the knob shields the pot. Used WD40 contact cleaner squirted under the knob. All works well now. BUT I think I might have got the same result just by squirting the cleaner in at side of the radio without taking anything apart. Use the WD40 cleaner with the thin tube. Cleaner cost more than I paid for the radio, but then I also used it to revive Sennheiser earpones and no doubt on other things in the future.

Hi Mike,

I have just opened my Sony FM/AM Radio ICF-P26. First remove the two screws were the batteries go.

Then as gently as you can using a very small flat screw driver beginning from the bottom left side were the Fm/AM/OFF switch is, try gently forcing your way up, there are a few hinges that will pop open. Once you get to the top, just above the tuning dial, repeat on the opposite side, where volume and earphone go.

Good luck! Even though I was doing it as gently as possible, I left some small marks on it, I guess it will be hard not to...

La radio Sony P-26 tiene algunos problemas en el conector stereo para auriculares, el volumen esta limitado en exceso y apenas se puede escuchar en espacios ruidosos el sonido que sale por los audifonos es mono no estereo, es necesario quitar las resistencias smd 222 y colocar una resistencia smd de 0 ohmios o soldar un cable a través de la resistencia 222 smd para la salida izquierda y derecha de los auriculares con conector pcb de la radio detras del conector para auriculares para tener un volumen pleno sin distorsión, y necesitara unas gotas de aceite W-40 en el poentenciometro de volumen que hay que desmontar levantandole las patillas de presion que tiene a su alrededor y cerrandolas despues de engrasarlo.

Para abrir la radio sony, quite los tornillos de debajo del compartimento de la batería y, con un trozo de plástico muy fino y duro, introduce a la fuerza entre la parte superior y la de abajo comenzando desde el lado del volumen hasta la parte superior y luego desde el conector lateral hasta la parte superior y se recomienda quitar la antena, quitar el tornillo negro de la tapa trasera y saque la antena, y antes de empezar a abrir la radio mueva la escala de frecuencia al final de la frecuencia del dial para no perder los ajustes del dial de la escala de sintonización.

(Plasticos para abrir radios sin dañar la carcasa) Corta con tijeras una botella de plástico de refresco y tendrá plástico rígido y flexible de rígido y más duro cuanto más cerca del tapón de rosca de la botella.

Espero que mi comentario ayude a alguien que tenga el mismo problema con la radio Sony P-26

I had the same problem as Mike, except it seemed to be a dry joint - the volume would jump to maximum when the case was held a certain way (not sure exactly what as I couldn't always make it happen). Resoldered the volume pots contacts - problem fixed.

I just opened the case as described above, took the screw out holding the board in, gently pried the volume wheel off so I could get to the sealed potentiometer (which is the  volume variable resistor), and lightly blew on it with little effort. 

I was very surprised to see it go from crackly and almost impossible to listen to, to like new.

Same problem, same model…twice. Originally bought via gift certificate, it lasted about a year before starting volume “flutter” as posted above, per Cris Lewis. Contacted Sony and they did replace under warranty. Well, about a year later the same symptom on the second unit! Sony replied with really dumb suggestions…”try changing batteries” or “ walk around the room for better reception”. Well duh. And by the way…no offer to replace. I am guessing this is a particular problem with the ICF_P26? Anyway I pulled off the back to see if I could figure what if anything I could view. At that point with nothing to lose, and I do not know why, decided to spray a very light lithium oil aimed at the volume wheel…a good soak. Guess what?! It worked. Now it has been about a year and volume glitch is back. Did the same “lube job” and radio back as new. I have no idea why but what a nice cheap fix…hopefully till next year. Try it. And by the way, my back up radio is a Sony model ICF-S10MK2. Old and beat up but nary a problem!
