I have the infamous "band selector bug"- no receive on shortwave and 89300 in the display. Supposedly this can be remidied by using Deoxit on SW1, the bandswitch. Buit to access it, I have to pull the front panel off. But to do that, I have to loosen SIX screws. What are the locations of each of these screws? And what do I need for a screwdriver long enough, with enough tork, to loosen these? I do have the service manual, but it is very vague as to the screw locations, especially the top ones.

Thank you, Arthur

You might find the information on how to remove the front panel from the Sony ICF-6700W on the radiomuseum website below:

Good luck! - Mark

I found this site weeks ago. Of limited use, in part due to the poor English/translation. But thanks.
