Introdução

Welcome to my 3rd teardown! today I will tear down an Osram Lightify.

This teardown is not a repair guide. To repair your Osram Lightify, use our service manual.

This is the Osram Lightify. This is a broken unit that does not sync to the app properly. I got a free replacement due to that.

  • Ooh... Shiny! you can see my iPhone 5s in it!

  • No more chit-chat. Time to dig in!

A mysterious unlabeled button. sadly, not red. The info for the device, Zigbee certified. Zigbee tries to turn all the different wireless control apps and stuff into one app.

    • It almost seems like someone taped over the device's unique ID to control it...

Hmmm... No give. maybe not that side. When it goes back in, it gives a nice deafening POP. Finally. now we are getting somewhere.

The white thing seems to let light through, but not let you see through to the inside. Seems to just pop right off. This is pretty easy so far! You can now see right through it.

The prongs that plug into the wall, are not actually soldered to the board, but are just connected by contacting. interesting... There are 2 more Torx T9 screws holding in the cover. most likely after removal of the cover the prongs can also be removed. The 4 screws are all the same, so you can mix and match to your heart's desire!

On the back we have two long metal sheets. Removal is pretty straightforward. And on the front again, the button slides right out.

I'd give this a 9 out of 10.

    • All screws and tabs.

    • Easily repaired without much knowledge of repair.

    • main board slides right out of the power connections.

    • Tiny bit of adhesive on the logo holding it in place, so it will not securely fit in after removal. although it will still fit snugly and not come out without rough handling. This is an unlikely repair anyway.

@captainsnowball Looks good. Now, all you have left to do is to tell the world what is under the EMI shields.
