Default How to disaassemble an e140 (e100 series)?

My e140 has volume problems.
How to disassemble an e100 series? I suspect dust has gotten into the thumbwheel volume control.
I see the 2 screws under the battery, but it seems like I'll have to pry something to open it. I'm not too excited about possibly breaking the case, so anything you can share would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks

Before you crack it open, have you tried to back up your files and format? Formatting does nothing more than erase all the data on you player, but in turn, it seems to fix a lot of issues.

Default Yes, & no change after formatting

I did use plain rubbing alchol to clean it.
I stood it up on it's side, with the wheel at the bottom. (to keep it off of the other electronics, as much as possible)
The applied a few drops.
Helped, but not perfect.

if there's a dust issue i would recommend removing the battery so that there's some access to the circuitry and use an compressed air cleaning product. If you open the player completely it voids the warranty

Yes, Sandisk will know if you opened it and will VOID the warranty. They have highly trained teams of psychics stationed around the world just for such detection.
