Remington pg200 groomer disassembly
This is a very simple repair.
To disassemble, twist the round bottom part (with the battery contacts) counterclockwise just a bit. Use jaw pliers if it won't twist with your hands alone. To protect the plastic finish of the groomer use some duct tape or a rag on the jaws. Gently twist and open the assembly. When separating the bottom part, take care not to pull it apart too far from the main assembly to avoid damaging the 2 thin wires connecting the bottom plate on the inside of the bottom charger to the main body of the groomer. The batteries will just slide out easily; they are not soldered or attached in any way. You can replace the batteries with any two standard AAA rechargeable NiMH batteries (1.2 volt).
Since the batteries are so easy to access, and there is no solder involved, in a pinch you can even use regular AAA Alkaline batteries! (but, of course, NEVER USE THE CHARGER WITH NON-RECHARGEABLE BATTERIES!!)
The groomer is now as good as new!
