Alinco DJ-193 no sound from internal speaker.

An Alinco DJ-193 where the built in speaker no longer worked, headphones worked fine.

Opnening was fairly straigtforward, (after finding nothing on the web).
Remove the antenna and pull of the rotary knob.

Then just flex the sides at the points shown to disengage the metal tabs from slots in the case and tilt the whole metal lump out.

A nice straightforward one, the fault was clear to see immediately, the speaker wire had at some point been pinched between the case and the metal assembly and been cut clean off. It had never been opened before so presumable from assembly at manufacture or the wire had moved through use ?

The wire was re attached and the speaker worked again.
