I cannot find out how to open a toshiba e405 to replace battery.
I purchased a replacement battery form my toshiba e405 pda. I removed the four screws on the back, but I can't seem to open the case.
I searched the internet for a diagram of the inside of the e405 hoping it would show how to install a battery. I couldn't find any information except the operators manual. The manual does not give any information.
A 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

Replacing requires some soldering skills.
1. Remove two screws in bottom end and pull off the bottom sheath.
2. Remove six rubber plugs that camouflage six screws.
3. Remove the six screws. The opener will come apart in halves and the motor assembly may drop free but will still be connected so be a little careful. Take note of the orientation of the larger spring near the bottom and the positions of fittings that mate with the shell.
4. Unsolder two leads connected to the old battery pack and remove it.
5. Now you have options for replacing the battery pack. The pack consists of four Nickel Metal Hydride batteries connected in series.
a. Buy replacements (I didn't do this so I don't know if a pack is available that is already assembled). You might have to buy four same-size batteries and assemble the pack yourself. You can determine size by cutting the shrink wrap away from the battery pack to expose the actual batteries.
b. Buy standard AA (or AAA) cells, rechargeable (Nickel Metal Hydride) cells that are readily available everywhere.
6. (Unnecessary if you found a pre-assembled pack). Assemble a battery pack by soldering battery terminal to battery terminal such that all four batteries are in series. You can arrange adjacent batteries with a plus terminal and a minus terminal next to each other. You can make the four batteries into a pack by winding them with electrical tape.
7. (Unnecessary if you chose step 5A). Using a sharp knife or a Dremel tool, whittle away most of three ribs that are formed into the plastic shell. There are two ribs to do in one of the shell halves and one(+) rib in the other shell half. The (+) rib is near the connector block mounted under the operating switch and you can decide how much of it to whittle away also. The objective is to get the new battery pack to fit in the shell halves when they are re-assembled.
8. Solder the plus(red) wire and the minus(black) wire to the new battery pack -- those are the two wires removed in step 4.
9. Add padding if you desire to keep the battery pack from rattling around inside the shells.
10. Reassemble the shells and the bottom sheath.
11. Enjoy your wine.
Remove the AC adabtor and battery. Remove the screen bezel by removing the four rubber bungs in the corners and renoving the screws beneath them. Remove the screen by unscrewing the four screws along the side of the screen. Carefully remove the screen.unplugging as you go. Replacement is the opposite method Hope that helps
Basically to take any phone or pda apart, unscrew all screws and look for hidden screws under soft objects or labels etc.
ones all screws are out, use a small flat screwdriver or a case opener tool to carefully open the case of the phone or pda. it should snap open, very likely plastic holders on the corners that keep the case closed, carefully snap them open / off, don't break them.
There is a lot of very confusing information about this battery pack and PDA - many companies are selling the battery without instructions and many reviewers/users claim that there is no way to replace the battery. Acer makes no mention of this either way and didn't seem too keen to answer the question.
The screws that you mention appear to be the ones as at least one company is selling the battery with a screwdriver included that appears to be the one for the four thin screws. Just make sure there are no other screws hiding under a sticker or similar - running a stylus over any stickers should reveal any potential screws that may have to be removed (almost certainly opening the case will void the warranty if still an issue)
Another company is also selling an "unmarking case opening tool" which is essentially a small plastic spatula - therefore I believe that when the screws are out you should be able to push something gently into the gap between the shells, popping it open - from photos it would appear that the small groove between the shells in the corners are the places to start.
BE gentle and careful with this as the possibility of damage is there, but once one part of the shells start to separate you should be able to see clearer what is holding them together.
If you want a bit more info then try e-mailing these guys;
They should be able to help as they do sell the battery and are well respected.
Hope this helps and good luck :)
- if you are in any doubt about doing it yourself then i recommend finding a repair shop near you, although I cannot believe it is too complicated to open. if there is any confusion about actually swapping the battery once the case is open, please post back with a photo of the inside and I hope we can help, but i think it should be easy enough once you are in - make sure you ground yourself properly and touch as little as necessary when inside.

I don't think the scratch has anything to do with the screen alignment. You might end up replacing the screen and the alignment problem will persist.
The alignment screen coming up is probably due to other hardware problems, and it should be covered by a warranty if you got even a limited one on the demo, its not your fault for causing the scratch on the screen, it probably has nothing to do with it.
you shouldn't have waited a year with this problem.
about replacing the screen- try getting a dead toshiba pda that uses the same screen from ebay, one that still has a screen intact,
but don't go over your head with replacing it, don't go beyond a point where you don't remember anymore what goes where.
