Probably one of the hardest Apple product I've disassembled, took me almost an hour to remove the top.

Thank you for your guide!

My homepod was knocked off a table during a party and started buzzing like crazy with any bass. I was able to follow this, and remove the woofer with no problems. turns out the woofer cage had bent unsealing the woofer, i was able to hammer it straight, reassemble, and it works perfectly again. THANK YOU.

What's the best way to test the PSU? My HomePod bricked, I disassembled it using this guide (Thank you!), the cable checks out, the next suspect is the PSU.

Thank you for the information, it is really very useful.

A family member gave me his first generation Homepod which is not working after a fall from a table. Due to its age it is out of warranty and was not repaired or replaced by the official Apple service. He tried unsuccessfully to repair it.

Today I opened it up and the flat cable that connects the motherboard to other components on the bottom of the device is broken very close to its connection to this motherboard.

I really don't think this is the original fault of the device but I would like to know if there is a possibility to repair or replace this cable.

Thank you very much.
