Epic win for the tinkerer! For reasons unknown, the play5 stopped connecting during some Spanish Guitar tonight (perhaps not its cup of tea). Wouldn't reconnect.
I turned to the broken bridge and tried to join the antenna several times but each time I screwed the back on and reconnected power, I got the blinking green light of failure.
6th time lucky... Unfortunately I connected power before putting the casing back so didn't want to disconnect (as i would need to in order to reassemble) and hope the connection held. Ended up setting the casing on top and wrapping in a single layer of cling film to keep the million spiders in the cellar out of it!
