Hi there,
I have worked on several of these and they are tricky the first time.

Unscrew the 4 main screws and remove the stand.

Then on the bottom of the frame, there are two very small little slots. That is where you carefully pry it open. It helps to have two small scredrivers for this, both smaller thin style.

There is a thing called a spudger you can find online that is a small thin nylon stick, I have a few of them, and it helps to pry open the face.

You have to get a little tiny opening, then stick in a screwdriver, then the other side, and keep carefully moving along seperating the front face panel. It is very slow, and do not get too crazy, just be patient.

This is not the exact model, but gives you and idea of how they come apart.

Good luck!

Make sure chainbrake is OFF. The brake band needs to be in the opened position to fit back over the clutch drum.

I have a jvl hd 707 and i cant get no sound at all what should i do?

Open back cover. You will need an allen wrench to open the cover. Use a small straight edge screw driver to pop up the back panel. Ease up the panel carfully. You will see a thick red wire with a black capsule about four inches down into the box. Unscrew the capsule , do not use pliers!!!!it will crack the plastic. Take the fuse to radio shack or some place similar t get a new fuse. If the fuse appears to be intact test it with a test light. Myt email is if you need further advice.

2690 hasn't wifi, but to open the back cover, you hold the phone as if you want to slide it down, it will open then you remove the battery.

I cant open the back cover of my nokia X3

To open the battery cover, you need to first slide the upper part into its designated areas, and then once in, you can then push down the lower part of the battery cover in each cover to lock into place.

Need change battery (LR44) but cant open my HP10S. Yes, I took the 2 screws but I can not open the calculator. Thanks. Klaus

The calculator HP10s has 7 attachments. 4 in sides, 2 in the upper part and one in the lower part. First you need to remove the screws, then you have to push the attachment in the lower part and continue with the ones that are in the sides.

I have a Microsoft Bluetooth Notebook Mouse 5000 and i need to change the battery. I cant find any latch or button to open the mouse to put new batteries in it! I looked on the MS site and found nothi

There is actually no release button on my 5000. Between the white on-off button and the bluetooth synch button there is a finger notch. If you put your index finger in the notch (pointing toward the base of the mouse you can put your nail under the lip and the batter compartment opens right up. There is a horizontal slot in the battery cover - trying to pry that open does not work. The whole thing is well-cloaked but surprisingly easy when you figure it out!

Cant open battery cover


Very simple solution. All you have to do it flip it over to the back cover is facing you, there is either a tiny button to push and then you can release the cover. Or you need to press firmly against the back and front and push up/pull down until the cover slips off!
