Opening LS210D Case
« on: February 13, 2018, 10:09:21 am »
The 2TB hard drive has failed in a single drive Buffalo Linkstation LS210D. Does anyone know how to open the case so that I can attempt to replace the drive?

It's held together by clips, this guide should be enough.

PM me for TFTP / Boot Images / LSRecovery.exe file.

Yeah, I did find that one, but was hoping for something less Japanesey...

Anyway, accepting that was probably the best I was going to get I went ahead and did it with just a couple of end clip casualties.

Yeah, that case is not designed to ever be opened once closed.

I just want to say a big thanks to davo for helping me to get the LS210D going again with a new drive.
