How to replace battery?

I can't find any way to open the unit to replace the battery and am thinking of returning it. Does anyone know how to do this?
It has to be simplier than this!

    I really don't see how you could turn the clip at the back, so that the backside would come off. I hear the clicking noise of the actual holding place, I don't see the back lid moving. I'm also not in the mood of trying it any harder and breaking the clip. I need it.

The clip on the back can be used as a turn-knob. Twist it off, and the back comes off. I doubt that anyone has the correct battery however. This player is one of the more problem-laden mp3 players out there, so a return of the item is not uncalled for.

I have a PMD-660 digital audio recorder from Marantz. It's one of the early models, but I have been very gentle with it. The unit works fine when plugged into AC, but no longer consistently works in...

I've worked on many of these units. There is a trick to opening these up without damage. I don't have the service manual in front of me at the moment, but can state that there have been issues with the AC/DC modes that usually is relatively easy to fix. Stay tuned for more details. I'll check the service manual later today.

My charging port seems to not work

My advise to you is if you have Sandisk Sansa m240 it does not come with a chargeable battery so you cannot charge it,replace it and your problem will go away. I replaced my unit with a rechargeable battery and I have no more battery problems. I charge my batter in a charger when needed.

No power going into my archos 604

If the unit was dropped, you may have to replace the battery. The batteries for those units are lithium-ion-polymer and are somewhat fragile when dropped. The other possible reason it is not working is that the shock form the drop has "bricked" or killed your unit's internal circuitry. I would also try charging it with another USB connection as the USB connection you are using may not be powerful enough to charge the unit. For more detailed help you can try the forums at There are many technical experts concerning Archos Units at that forum.
