  • Target FC1000 "pill" flip clock disassembly and repair

    I've removed the four screws on the back that hold the front and rear housings together. However, they don't slide out or otherwise come apart.

    They appear to be retained internally on the left side of the clock (where the frequency tuning ring is located). Yet, I can find no screws or other retention clips or devices that enable disassembling the left side of the clock.

    Has anyone succeeded in disassembling this clock? If so, would you kindly share your secrets? On mine, the radio and night light receive power, but the flip motor runs intermittently or not at all.

    Thanks in advance for any reply.

    Well, I definitely had one of these in hand, (Video) but for some reason I didn't take it apart (Now I take apart every clock I get my hands on).
    But it seems like you're going to have to take the the round portion of the clock off (see picture below).
    Could be screw off, may be pop-off. I'd hate to steer you wrong on this but it looks like it has to come off.
