Hi there:
once the screws are out:

you just need to pop out the back case in order to see the mainboard of your pocket pc.

try first whit your nails, and if you can't, then use a plane screwdriver.... but try firs whit nails cause screwdrivers can harm or scratch your case.

and tata you´re ready to change the battery....


find a guide whit pictures here.....

There is a small screw under the warranty void sticker. Take that out and the cover should just pop out.

How do you get inside the tomtom 910 to change the battery please.Is there a maual? Cliff


There is no real manual for this, I have done it before though and have typed out the directions here for you, plus a link for the new battery if you need it:

Please make sure you rate my answer 4 thumbs up, it is extremely important to me. I would be forever grateful if you could do so. If you need more help on this question please just respond to my answer here and I will get right back to you.

New Battery:

1) Remove 4 screws under ends of rubber strips on back. (All screws are Torx number 6)

2) Remove back cover. Front frame around screen comes off easier now.

3) Remove 2 screws in round top circuit board. Remove 4 screws from lower circuit board. These two boards may have a glue connection. Do not worry if it separates

4) Lay back circuit boards to unplug battery. Note flat ribbon cables are fragile. The 3 wire plug is the battery. Unplug wires to battery from receptacle on circuit board.

5) Remove front screen by pressing a screwdriver against the small metal tags that follow the edge of the screen. The tabs need to be pushed in slightly to allow you to lift the screen out. It may need some leverage, but be careful not to put the screwdriver to far behind the screen as there are a couple of thin cables for the connections.

6) To remove the hard drive you may need to unscrew the vertical black tags about 2 cm long. These simply come away and are grasping the business card size silver box IE the hard drive. The rubber end caps are pressed in, pry out with small screw driver.
7) Remove battery and replace. Note the two sided sticky tape around battery. When putting more tape on, be careful you do not put to much around the right hand end as it will connect with the thin cable when you put it all back together.

9) Reverse assembly. Mine works fine now, good luck. (and so does mine! BLP)
Footnotes: I did not have a Torx #6 screwdriver nor could I buy one locally. I found a #7 mini star bit works just fine. Source: Harbor Freight item # 93316, 6 piece Mini Star Bit Set - $3 PMVN - 9/19/2009
I am not advertising but Batteryship.com included with the battery #5 & #6 torx screwdrivers, a very small philips (star), a straight screwdriver and a plastic pry tool. Whatever I paid more than another place it was worth it.

When disassembling do not remove the battery clip. Just pop out the battery from the front (experienced having to reassemble that whole thing). Also having a set of tweezers to put the electrical connections back together helped a bunch.


Thanks
Tim

How is the backup battery charged and or changed


Remove top (side thumbscrews)
remove main battery cover and battery
unscrew stylus holder from back (1 screw)
unscrew black plastic inner top (4 screws)
remove top gasket
unscrew back (6 screws)
carefully remove back
CAREFULLY NOTING THE POLARITY OF THE PLUG:
carefully unplug connector from back
unscrew plastic cover over the speaker & backup battery from inside of back cover (4 screws)
replace battery w/ Digikey #P084-ND
23x2mm 3volt 30mah lithium battery ~$6 USD in 2010. aka Panasonic #VL2320/VCN
this requires you to re-solder the ex. leads to new battery*
*WARNING ASSUMES YOU ARE ABLE TO CHECK THE POLARITY AND KNOW HOW TO SOLDER SMALL ELECTRICAL COMPONENTS.
YOU ARE ON YOUR OWN HERE AND ASSUME THE RISKS THAT THIS TYPE OF GADGET HACKING ENTAILS!

(Optional - find an original replacement battery from Panasonic with the correct leads attached and just plug it in. This is much safer.)

Reverse operations and you are back in business.

How to open mio P560 for changing battery


I have just replaced my battery in my Mio p560. On the back of the Mio at the top - remove the two small rubber bungs, you will see the screws underneath. On the back at the bottom you must remove the alluminium strip to get at the remaining two screws. This is the only tricky bit! The strip has the hole for the pointer on the right, with a small screwdriver prise up the LEFT side of the strip, it is stuck down but will come if you are gentle! Then you can detatch the strip at the right side. The two bottom screws will be under this strip. remove the four screws now. The FRONT of the Mio can then be separated from the back, it just clips along the sides. The battery can then be got at and exchanged. When you re-assemble make sure the on/off switch locates properly. Thats it! Regards David Harford

I have a Mio P550 Digi walker. How do you open the battery chamber in order to change the battery? Many thanks cacameron@btopenworld.com


I removed the rubber infill that covered a hidden screw. Released screw and then removed back plate. Removing the battery then required care as it is stuck with two sided tape to the Mio internals. Here I used a knive to prise/cut free.

Won't charge even though Green light is on and connects to computer. Just put a new battery in.


Yes, possibly a cracked pc board if the unit was dropped. But check to make sure that the charging unit's connector is clean as well as the unit to be charged. I had a problem with my wireless phone and a PDA not charging because of dirty contacts. I got to the contacts using a long Q-tip moisten with Isopropyl alcohol and scrubbed them clean. I now do it about twice a year. No problems since then.

Device switches off by itself


the problem is a little microswitch that tells the unit to power off when the back cover is removed... it seems to be a common problem, causing the screen to go 'interlaced' and reset or hang, sometimes shaking causes it to restore itself. solution is remove the back cover (4 torx screws and 1 philips screw under the warranty tag) and glue the switch in the up position...

You just need the touch screen (digitizer). There are actually 2 pieces that are mistaken to be the screen. The other piece is the touch screen and beneath that is the LCD display. Be certain to order the correct piece.

To replace, you need a micro phillips head screw driver and a T-6 torx screw driver. Also patience, and a steady hand.

You must start at the back of the device, through the battery door. Remove the 2 micro phillips at the top of the battery opening (one is covered with a tamper evidence sticker). Then carefully, starting at the bottom of the camera plate, pry upwards and to the speaker to unsnap the smaller facing. Remove the camera by gentally pulling up to unplug, then unscrew the circuitry and remove. This will expose the 4 torxs (2 in batt opening) to remove the back cover. After screws are removed, gentally work the covers snaps loose around perimeter and remove (pay attention to the speaker wire) unplug it from the circuitboard. Pull the antenna nub to detach.

Remove the screws holding the circuitboard, unpluging the keyboard and slider ribbon cable. Gentally hold the ribbon cable and remove the securing tape. (dont pull too hard!) Pulling the circuitboard exposes the 4 micro phillips screws (2 each side) to detach the slider.

Remove the 4 torx screws on the back of the LCD slider, then gentally pry around to separate the housing.

To remove the LCD / Touch screen you must unplug the ribbon cables. To do this you need to open the connector's trap (black bar). It hinges. Just pry upwards from the ribbon side. Once bar is lifted ribbon will slide out. Be careful if you need to remove the gold foil tape. Remove the single screw holding the ear speaker, and the ribbon should come out. The screen will not come out after gentally prying it free of the holding snaps in the casing.

Installation is simply the reserve. Hope this helps....

Scratched audiovox screen


You just need the touch screen (digitizer). There are actually 2 pieces that are mistaken to be the screen. The other piece is the touch screen and beneath that is the LCD display. The outer scratched screen is the touch screen.

Ebay, and various online retailers have them for around $40. You can do it yourself if you try.

Hi, to replace battery, you need to undo the 4 screws hold the back casing. When these are removed you can open the back, revealing the battery. There is a black plug that pushes into a white socket on the pcb, with 4 wires coming out of it that goes to the battery. Pull this plug out and the battery then comes free. Hope this helps.
