How do you OPEN the battery compartment of this mp3?
I can't seem to get it open at all. It says to press the tab on the battery compartment of the back. There is no protruding "tab" and I press the flat "tab" but nothing happens. I just can't seem to open it.

You could try to pry the door loose with a small screwdriver. To be safe, make sure the primary 110V power is turned off before trying to loosen the compartment door.
This is an inexpensive unit, less than $10, and is easily replaced if you can't get the door open.
If you do decide to replace it, you may want to look into a combination unit which monitors smoke and carbon monoxide if you don't have a carbon monoxide detector already in your home.
I don't have Freeview, but often on remotes there is a screw hiding in the battery compartment. Then prise open gently to see where the plastic tabs are that hold the two halves together. Push and twist with a broad blade screwdriver at these tabs.
That clear plastic tab was there simply to keep the battery from making contact and running down.Since you declined to specify a make or model I can't give you definitive instructions. Can you find the outline of the battery cover? There's probably a set of grooved ribs on the cover, possibly with an arrow. If there is an arrow, put your thumb on the ribs and push in that direction. If there isn't an arrow you may have to try both directions if it's not obvious which way it's supposed to go.If you need further assistance feel free to reply to this post, but also be sure to specify the make and model of whatever device you're trying to open.
The GR80 uses for type D batteries. The battery compartment is on the bottom of the console, look for the D-shaped battery door, press the tab located towards the front side of the console and open the door. Careful, the batteries may fall down if you open the door - type Ds are heavy enough to be felt when they fall on your feet.

(2)Press and Move the battery cover in the direction of the arrow.

3) after repair, perform a firmware upgrade ("Update" tab in Philips Device Mgr while GoGear is connected to computer - see Philips website for more details)
Worst case scenario - Even rechargeable batteries have a limited number of charging cycles. The battery for the SA178 is an LI-Polymer 300mAh 12-hr battery. Philips won't fix it for you, but you might want to find a local repair service.
