How to open a DS50 (or DS51 or AF35...)?

So after removing the front plastic cover, the clear lens can be turned through a small angle.. but won't lift out or slide out.
Does the sync cord connector have to come off first, or perhaps the power knob on the back, or both?
The DS50, DS51 and AF35 all look like the exact same mold... so I expect will be the same to take apart.
Thanks... this is driving me nuts...

Hope this helps but must say I have never examined a DS model

That's a great suggestion Jim. I really like the idea that the thing is just sucking itself together with a bit of negative air pressure! Explains a lot about the lack of visible fixings.
Unfrotunately the design must have changed -- I can't see any way anything could fit around the ready-light on this one.
It's flat, not dome shaped, and is slightly recessed into the back of the case and there is no gap even for very narrow tweezers :-(
Thanks anyway, much apprecated.
