I just went to replace the batteries in my 250's after 7 years of sitting unused and I also had to PRY the battery compartments off after wrestling with them for 15 min. to no avail & very sore hands LOL. Just take a medium sized flat blade screw driver, place it between the sides of the cover split and give a small downward TWIST, then do the same in the middle of the back of the compartment to break them loose then you can pull them straight off. I used a TINY dab of HAND CREAM and rubbed it along the inside SIDES of the compartment before replacing and now they come off nice & easy but are still very secure for future battery changes !

After the last guy's suggestion (which worked, who had've thought just to pull hard) we had to pry the battery cover a little to get it started.

Hold the body of radio in left hand using the right hand, wrapping hand around both sides of bottom and pull hard. The bottom will come off, so pull hard.

Probably is a bad battery. Most of them start to die after 1 1/2 to 2 years. Try to use a jump start or another battery to verify. Good luck.

Why do you think you need to replace the battery? A common sign that your Motorola Bluetooth headset needs a new battery is when you repeatedly hear five quick high tones in successive, one-minute intervals. Another symptom of a low or dead battery is when you try to scroll to Power and your headset doesn't come on. The Motorola H500 headset has a long battery life, but the battery eventually will go bad. Unfortunately, the battery is integrated as part of the headset's circuitry and should not be replaced by its user. Motorola strongly advises against trying to change the battery. Attempting to replace the battery voids the headset's warranty. By sending the headset to Motorola for repair, you can have a new battery installed without the risk of damage to your equipment.
But you can try the following at your own risk:
Locate the battery door at the rear of the headset and open it.
Remove the old battery. Install a new battery to match the plus and minus illustrations on the battery compartment. Shut the battery door back in place.
Select "Menu" on your phone. Select "Settings."
Select "Connection," "Bluetooth Link," and "Setup."
Select "Power." Select "Change."
Select "On," and then press "Select."
Press the "Call" button and hold it down. Release it when the LED light blinks.

How do I change out the batteries in a Safety First nodaway?

The battery compartment is secured to the bottom of the bassinet. Remove the baskets from the fabric shelf (if present) and look between the frame rails. The battery compartment has two covers, each secured by a Philips screws (one on each side of the compartment). Unscrew the screws and you'll see 2 AA batteries in each section. Match the orientation of the batteries when you replace them. Then replace the covers and their screws. Then put back the baskets.

The instructions for the Nod-A-Way Bassinet are available from the manufacturer: . The direct link to the manual is .

I hope this helps.

I have a Acer aspire 5610z notebook and it is asking for a password for the bios. I do not know it and need to know how to reset the password.

To reset the BIOS password, you need to pull out the CMOS battery on the motherboard. You can remove the access panels on the bottom and hopefully find it there. If not you will need to disassemble the laptop.
