Pro-Pointer AT "Carrot" behind the speaker grill

Post by Andrews148 » Thu Mar 15, 2018 6:20 pm

My carrot had a bit of a rattle due to ground that had got in through the speaker slots, so I popped the grill out. Look what's behind it Image

I presume that the plastic's just thin there, to let the sound through, and that the grill is just to armour it. I use vibrate mode, so I'll stick some tape on the slots to stop crud going in.

Sounds like a plan Andrew. I've done similar with my pointer with good results. ::g Regards ss47

Guess it is designed like that because the first gen pp, are always clogging up the grill and thus makes it much easier to clean them out. Have yet to buy the carrot, but when my old pp expires its on my next shopping list.

That's handy to know. So the only water access is if the cap seal fails. ::g
