If this is an alkaline battery, it may be stuck due to corrosion. I would carefully slide a solution of liquid soap and water going a little heavier on the soap. Dial soap is perfect, and let it sit for 24 hours. The batteries should slide right out. Try it

You may have to drill a hole in the batt and pull it out. Probably has acid leak on top of it, and the batt. expanded. Seen this once with a Tape recorder and used a wirehook to get it out. It aint easy, but it can be done and not hurt the light.

Have all in one electronic Wolfgang puck salt and pepper mill. I can't figure out hot to open the top to replace the batteries. It does not work like the electronic sets (is a bit different).

batteries are in the bottom. unscrew bottom cap and pull metal ring to release battery pack. put in fresh batteries and return to casing. screw cap in place. if it does not work immediately, unscrew cap again and move metal wire to opposite side of battery pack and replace the cap again.

Need to fix loose wire inside 421 sennheiser how do you open it up?

Well, it looks like an SKM 100/g2 casing so if that is true, then unscrew the bottom part till you have access to the batteries and there are three star screws you'll need to take out right between the battery compartment and the bottom with the LCD screen. The bottom cover slides down and off. If you need the cartridge out then you unscrew the top of the mic where the actual pickup is and pull the core out through the top. That should be close, but might vary a little bit.

How do i change the bulb

Unscrew the bottom portion, where the batteries go. Then unsrew the top where you can adjust the beam width until it comes off. Very carefully pull the bulb out and replace the old bulb with the new. The Reassemble is the reverse of the procedure.

Need to replace the cmos battery on a gateway 450sx4 laptop.

Some are way deep inside, and you have to remove the top part of the case from the bottom.

Some others, you can remove the top power strip, (unscrew screws in the battery compartment, and sometimes on the bottom) and then unscrew the keyboard, and when you remove that, sometimes you can get right to it.

The only problem is, some of the laptop batteries are odd ducks, and not just the standard, they have wires or a metal tag on them. You can always order a new one onces you get to it.
