In this guide, you will locate several screws that hold the top panel in place and remove them. They are all Phillips screws and are simple to remove.
Remove four 7.5 mm Phillips screws on the both sides (2 on each side).
Remove five 7.5 mm Phillips screws on the back of the player.
Lift the top panel from the back and remove. It should come off without being forced. There is a lip near the front so you many need to slide the top panel back slightly to remove it.
