How to release the battery clip on Casio Databank DBC-1500?
I need to know how to release the battery clip (metal retainer over the top) on a Casio databank DBC-1500 (same as the DBC310-1 or any of the other plastic case variants, or the 30, 150, or 300 page Telememo watches, uses Module 1477 or 1478 and a CR2016 battery). Looks like it would be very simple if you know what spot to press for a release.
Also, if anyone knows how to swap modules, or a a link for this info, it would be appreciated.
The standard (simple) user manuals do not have this info (but if you need them, they can be found (if you have the module #) at: http://world.casio.com/wat/download/en/manual/ ) Thanks!

This is an old problem, but maybe this will help someone changing a battery on a Casio. Many Casio watches must be "zeroed out" by putting an pointed tweezers between the back of the battery and the AC terminal off to the side of the battery. On my old Casio Telememo 50, the AC terminal is in a very small hole just above the battery. On the Baby G force, it was in a wider opening, way at the edge of the watch. It has something to do with resetting the watches circuitry so it will operate again. Good luck!
If your databank is like mine (DB-35H), there is a TINY spring in a really unusual spot that you probably didn't notice that fell out. Laying the watch face down and with the back off, there is a little tiny hole in the back towards one of the corners. (sorry, already put my watch back together and didn't notice which corner.) There is a tiny (1/16" x 1/4") spring that sits upright in that hole. It must make a contact with the metal cover. I replaced my battery and when I did, a spring fell out. I looked all over the internet, then wrote Casio, who said they didn't have access to the information about where the spring went. (Doh!) I got a used DB-35H from my brother and was going to swap the innards when I noticed the spring on his. Put my spring back and it beeps! If you've lost the spring, don't know if you can fake it with tinfoil or not, but it really is a TINY spring. Good luck.
