I have just gotten a pair of conair pro 2 speed dog clippers with snap on blades. Thought the snap ons would be easier-not for me. Was able to change them 3 times and took it off to clean and cannot get back on, I've tried for 3 weeks now and the clippers work wonderfully, but I'm ready to throw them out. Please help! Joann

There is a small button at the bottom edge of the blade, push it in and at the same time push the blade teeth away from the clipper. The blade will hinge away from the clipper, you then lift the blade up off the tongue. When fitting another blade pop it onto the tongue, turn the clipper on and snap the blade shut.
Most common cause will be the blades have gone dull and should be
sharpened or replaced. Check that the 2 screws on the blade latch assy
are tight where it screws onto the front housing, blade off to check
them. 3rd thing to check is for excessive wear in the lever that drives the blades, if it is worn replace it.
With the hinge of the clipper facing you:
Make sure hinge is open, if it is not, prize it open with a flat head screwdriver.
Slide the blade on with the blade siz/number faceing you.
If this fails, try again, but push the latch in as you snap them shut.

some times the link and gear inside the front part of the clipper wears out and the blades just wont cut. try this, remove the clipper blade on the front of the clipper their is a lever color red grab this part with your 2 fingers and move it side to side if it moves and feel sloppy your gears and link are worn out. you need to replace, also check the hinge for spring tension. if you need help Contact firstname.lastname@example.org
This is from the Oster book: Changing Blades To Remove: IMPORTANT- stop motor; push latch with thumb while lifting blade away from clipper and slide off tongue. To Replace: turn motor on; insert blade on tongue fully and then snap blade into place.
Note: if the hinge is flush against clipper, lift it up with a screwdriver.
From me - Never take your blades apart to clean them. You can slide them one side to the other to get the hair out. (One little hair, can stop them from cutting.) You need to buy a can of clipper blade cool from oster or andis both are good, and it really helps to lubricate the blade and keep them cool while clipping. If you live near a dog groomer, petsmart or something of the like. Ask them to show you how to remove the blade and I know they will be happy to show you. I tried to submit an image from the book, but I don't know if it will get here or not.
I have had this same problem! I bought new blades, sharpened old ones, and nothing worked. Finally, I went to an authorized service center and they couldn't figure it out. Then the tech. pressed on the blade (the outside bottom one) and it cut! When you remove the blades with the 2 big screws, there are 2 more smaller screws inside under the smaller blade. One of those was not screwed in tightly. That was all it was! I guess they jiggle loose. I hope this helps!
It sounds like you may have a bent hinge which is what the blade slides onto. Please call Andis customer service at 1-800-558-9441 to speak with a customer service rep. They can give you instructions on where to purchase a new hinge or send or clippers in for repair.
