    How do you get it apart?

  • jwe11647 Feb 03, 2009

    Which is the back side? I have the two ends open. One end has four screws. The other end has none.. Do I need to remove these four screws?

  • jwe11647 Feb 03, 2009

    I can see no lock on the device I have. I have both ends open. One end has 4 tiny screws. The other end has none. Do I have to remove these four screws to get at the battery.

  • jwe11647 Feb 03, 2009

    The solution given by rockfixya did not help. He must be looking at a different device. The one I have only has screws on one end as I said. However, you did refer me to a site called Gigabeat surgery which contained pictures which I believe will enable me to remove and replace the battery. Thank you.

Replace the Battery Remove five screws: two on the side, two on the bottom and one on the back behind the lanyard hook. When that screw is removed, remove the lanyard hook insert.
Slide the metal backing down as shown in the photo. Then pull it straight up.
Unhook the ribbon connection attached to the metal backing by lifting up on the brown flap where the ribbon is connected. The ribbon will then slide out.
Pull the hard drive back as shown in the photo.
Remove two screws near the bottom of the player. One is on the bottom and one is on the right side near the battery switch.
The battery is now exposed. You can disconnect it by gently pulling on the red and black cables.

Thanks for using FixYa.

How do i replace hoveround motor?


First off, are you sure it's the motor causing the problem? Changing the motor is a major job. Basically, you have to completely disassemble the entire unit.
Remove the seat and then the batteries. To get to the drive motor, you must remove the pedestal base, and the plastic shroud that covers the base plate. Remove all screws from the top of the unit, and flip over and remove the bolts from the bottom. The control box is held in place by 2 hex screws. Label the motor wires showing their location. Remove motor and replace with new drive motor. Attach motor wires and reassemble entire unit.

Need to replace battery door.


i have not replaced the battery door but have disassembled an S5000 following the service manual

it looks like once you complete the first step 'Removing the R CABINET ASSY' you can withdraw the hinge pin and replace the battery cover without any more disassembly [see attached image]

My Philips 9FF2CME/37 photo frame no longer holds a battery charge. How do I access the battery so that I can replace it? What type (make/model#) battery?


Hello,
the Philips 9FF2 photo frame has an internal rechargeable battery inside the photo frame. So in other words, the Philips 9FF2 photo frame needs to be disassembled for you to be able to access the battery, then make necessary replacement.
With the Philips 9FF2 photo frame turned off and remove from the charger, get a screw driver, use it to disassemble the unit to take the back cover apart in order to gain access to the internal part to get to the battery.
Remove the battery, take it to any electronics part store in your area and get a battery replacement. It is not necessary that you get a Philips battery, all you need is a battery with the same size and volt/watt.
I hope the above is clear.
Regards.

HOW TO OPEN CASE OF MS3 2000 TO REPLACE BATTERIES


The MS3-2000 was not designed to be opened. The case is glued together on the sides. It cn not be disassembled without causing damage to the case

Instead of trying to replace the batteries, I suggest that you change out the entire handle portion of the shaver called a 'lower unit'. It is very cost effective. You will find a compatible lower unit at shaveroutlet.com. See link below

How to open remington ms3 1700 electric shaver to change battery and battery type??


Your shaver model is not designed to replace the batteries. To open it, you have to remove the side grips on oscillator housing which are glued on. Disassembling it will cause it to be all marred up.
shaveroutlet.com has an easy and inexpensive solution. See link below

Can you replace the battery of the sansa clip 2GB at home? What kind of battery do you need?


The Sansa Clip's internal rechargable battery is not user replaceable. However, if it fails within the warranty period (one year), the device can be replaced.Clip's battery is not easily replaceable however if it fails within the warranty period (one year), SanDisk will replace the device.
