Yes the black cap comes off but a smooth knife edge
or cell phone "spud" tool might be needed to pry it
a little. Keep it coming straight off by not prying
too much on one side, then it just pulls off.
Batteries are held up in the black cap.

I had to pull everything out since it got flooded
and the rest of the guts came out by rappin it
with the opening down onto a counter.
There is a pad to make contact with the battery
and a tiny round piezo buzzer and then the end
of a very thin single sided circuit board slides out.
Once I got a bit of that out I was able to grab it
carefully with pliers and pull the rest out to
clean and dry it. Mine had two LR44 batteries.

I've had bad experience with cheap pill
batteries (short battery life) through eBay,
so you might do better to get name brand
LR44's for a much longer battery life.

How long do good name brand batteries
last in this thing?

Dead Battery?

Take out the batteries. Also take out the backup battery. It is a button battery beneath the screw in the battery compartment. Check the button battery volts with a multi-meter. After 5 minutes put the button battery back in and then the fresh batteries. It might work now. Alternatively take out a battery, then hold the clear button and put the battery back in. Then try to turn on. If it still does not work take out a battery press the del button and put the battery back in.

Need "how to" instructions on changing the battery

Remove the cables, look for any bolts holding the battery there, there should be at least 2, loose them, pull out the battery, put the new one in, put the bolts on again and tighten them properly (not too hard). put on the cables again. Be sure to put the right cable on the right pole! if you put it on the wrong pole you will have a surprising, yet very nice to watch rain of sparks. some newer cars have the battery inside a box like thing, if you cant see the battery just by popping the hood, it should be inside a somewhat rectangular box. Good luck :)

When I put my battery back into my camera after charging it. The camera will still not turn on. Why ?

Check the position of the batteries. Some camera require the batteries to put in (+)(+) positive-positive position if we see from above. Some other require the batteries to put in (+)(-) or (-)(+) or (-)(-).
Make sure you have put in the batteries in the right place.
Sometimes, unchargeable batteries will stay longer than chargeable batteries, You can try to insert that kind of batteries.

If useful, RATE please.

I put a new battery in 2 times and the battry is

Some feature on your opener must have a switch that is stick in the closed (on) position. Possibly, you put a near dead battery into the device? Please check with a volt meter.

You could check the device with a volt/ohm meter in the circuit ... put the meter between the + post of the battery and the + contact of the device. Put a wire on the - battery and the - device to complete the circuit ... if you are using power, there should be some amp reading on the meter.

Phone was working, when the battery was very low, i switched it off to get the sim out of it and when I put back the battery to switch it on.. it doesnt want to start. Its been dead ever since, any chances...

Hi!... I think your battery is very drained. Try to "shock" the battery first. If you have a DC supply at home, set the supply at 6-10V then Put the negative terminal wire to the negative terminal of the battery and in a snap put the Positive wire to the Positive Terminal of the Battery. Then put your battery back to your phone and charge it. It will probably be ok.

Toro 20045 Mower will not start. Battery is putting out 13 volts and all I get is a slight grown.

While the battery may be putting out 13 may not be putting out enough amps to turn the engine over...try charging/replacing the battery.
