Can't get cap battery cover off to replace the batteries
I have slid back the battery cover so I can replace the batteries and I get it about 1/3 of the way open exposing about 3/4 of the first set of two batteries only to have the battery cover stop. It is most likely catching on the remaining two batteries that it hasn't passed over yet. I haven't looked insided of it mainly again because I can't get the battery cover off, but I'm guessing there is too much upward pressure on the batteries and they are in the way of the battery cover coming off.

There is usually a nitch along the rim of the remote. Use a small flathead screwdriver to gentally pry open the case. If there is no nitch on the rim then try slidding one of the top covers with just slight pressure. Vuala can now replace the battery.
This problem is caused by the 'step' inside the battery cover which prohibits the tip of the battery from contacting the nipple inside the cover. I fitted a thin piece of aluminium strip (20thou) and the rangefinder now works perfectly. Most brands of CR2 battery now have higher sides which shield the tip - bad design.
The TECO-type remote has a slide down front 1/2 cover that when slid down reveals more controls/adjustment buttons - keep pulling that cover down it will come off and reveal the slot for the batteries. Eureka!
there are four hidden screws under the little rubber plugs on the back (unless they are missing) remove those screws, then use your finger nail (thats what i use) to slid it around the seem of the front and back cover to un snap the locks.
carefully seperate them and disconnect the wires off the rear cover thats attached to the board...its pretty easy...just dont be in a hurry
youll see the battery right away and its a simple remove and replace...no soldering or any other nonsense
The following instructions will enable the Bell 9242 remote to operate a Bell 5900 receiver. Remove back battery cover. Just below the "Bell" lettering on the front of the remote, there is a half moon shaped plastic insert "key" that slids out downward. Turn over the plastic key and reinsert back into postion and replace the battery cover. Success!
there are two ways to fix this.
1- remove the bottom cover, take the rubber seal off from the battery compartment, remove the battery then soak the bottom cover in vinegar overnite. this will remove all corrosion. remove the battery cap and clean the threads. completely dry the cap and bottom cover, apply WD40 to battery cover threads. clean battery contact with pencil eraser ( carefully ). reinstall the rubber seal, replace bottom cover.------ best fix.
2- this may not work but it's worth a try. just apply ( carefully ) WD40 around battery cap and let it set for about an hour, re-apply and wait another half hour. If this doesn't work refer to # 1
