Pry it apart along the edge with an exacto. Be careful around the antenna where it is circular.

Get a new battery to match and a battery holder from DigiKey.
Solder wires to the new battery holder and secure it at an angle up by the antenna with white silicone making sure that the case closes. Get the + and - right when you solder.

Test the unit then secure the case with white silicone in a small bead.

I have a Skil Model 2363 drill. Used it about 3 times. Put it in the charger and it won't charge. I have it for about 1-1/2 years. Skil says I have to buy a new one. That the battery is no longer made....


Sometimes places like Batteries + and the Battery Barn (on line web sites) will have replacement batteries for popular models even after the manufactures quit producing them. That is where I found batteries for my Bosch drill.

Hi my makita 18v impact driver seems to be getting alot weaker throughout the years, still works but no enough torqe


Lithium batteries have a limited lifespan, typically 3 or 4 years, and their capacity between charges decreases over the years.
To extend the lifetime of a battery it should be run completely flat after every few charges rather than topping it up. New batteries need to be charged several times and run flat under normal use before they gain their full capacity.

Red light is flashing and mouse will not work - battery?


refer to manual -- but yes, i would say its battery issue -- replace batteries .
if you never replaced battry since you bought it and it is over 2 years old, then you have lithyium type battery .
if it came with lithium battery, take the screw(s) off-- mouse will have lithium battery (size of a quarter), then go to radio shack and buy replacement -- but have RADIO SHACK test your battery before you buy another one, to make sure it is a battery issue.

GW-1500A Casio has to be sunlight every day otherwise it stops


Hi gregbrands,

If your watch is several years old, I would recommend sending it back to Casio for service and battery replacement. Contrary to what you may hear about solar-powered watches, the rechargeable batteries do not always last for 10-20 years. I've seen some go out in 2-3 years. This is a shorter lifespan than most standard lithium watch batteries.

You may have an authorized Casio service center near you also. If not, contact Casio at the following numbers:

For Repair support in USA at 1-800-706-2534 during regular business hours (currently Monday-Friday 9:00a.m. - 5:00pm EST, Saturday / Sunday 10:00 a.m. - 8:00 p.m.) For Technical support in USA at 1-800-435-7732 during regular business hours (currently Monday-Friday 9:00 a.m. - 8:00pm EST for all products, Saturday / Sunday 10:00 a.m. - 8:00 p.m)

The cost of your watch well justifies this kind of service, plus, they will assure it remains waterproof up to its specifications.

Let me know if I can help further.

Thanks, Bill

I havent worn this watch for about a year the battery has 10 year warranty and was working fine.now it has stopped working.


A few watch companies...Bulova being one of them used to give a 10 year warranty but I dont know of any batteries that actually last 10 years! The average life of a 1.5 volt silver oxide battery is 2-3 years (sometimes a smidge longer) depending on the age and condition of the watch. A 3 volt lithium battery will get on average 3-4 years.

Im guessing that your battery is probably dead! :-)

Motherboard timer is not working properly


Every PC motherboard has a battery. That battery serves two purposes: to feed the configuration memory (also called CMOS) and to feed the real time clock of the computer (the one that show the date and the time).

An indication it is time to change the motherboard battery is receiving one of the following error messages when you turn on your computer: CMOS CHECKSUM FAILURE, CMOS BATTERY STATE LOW, CMOS SYSTEM OPTIONS NOT SET and CMOS TIME AND DATE NOT SET. Another indicator of a low battery is a clock that, after being set, runs well while the computer is on, but shows the wrong time when the computer is turned on the following day (it is late).

The motherboard battery can be built using three different technologies: Nickel-cadmium (NiCd), NVRAM (Non-Volatile RAM) and Lithium (Li). The Lithium battery, which is a round one (the size of a coin) and can be easily found at watchmaker's and computer parts stores, has long been the most used type. To buy one of these batteries, all you have to do is to look for a model CR2032 one.

Replacing the motherboard lithium battery demands some care. It seems to be a simple task, but it is not.

The lithium battery may use basically three socket types: socket with upper tab (Figure 1), socket with lateral tab (Figure 2), and the socket into which the battery stands instead of lying (Figure 3).

Fig 14e23e4b.jpg

5671bf9.jpg

Fig 2

While the replacement of the battery in the socket with the lateral tab or of the one that stands is simple (Figures 2 and 3) – all you have to do is draw back the tab using your finger or a small screwdriver and replace it – the replacement of the batter that has an upper tab covering it (Figure 1) demands extra care. In this type of socket, if you raise the metallic tab to replace the battery, it will lose its pressure and will not make contact with the battery anymore, damaging the socket. In this case, the correct replacement of the battery in done pressing a small plastic lock at the side of the socket with the fingers or using a small screwdriver. That will allow the battery "to slide" laterally, not damaging the upper tab.
Whatever the socket used, don't forget that the replacement of the battery should be done while the computer is off.

"Upload ...Not Present" message. Nothing else on the screen. I replaced the internal battery last spring used it all summer. Have just checked internal and external batteries and all are fresh 3v internal and new AA four batteries. Upon startup the screen says "Upload" "Not Present" and there is no menu. I have tried hitting Page and Menu, etc. nothing happens. I tried leaving it out and on for 3 hours to see if it would find itself and satellites. I tried connecting to the computer and uploading the internal program the port was not found. Tried this a number of times and a number of ways. I have tried leaving it on to search for 3 hours and have tried to connect to my computer to reinstall the software but that does not work. The internal battery was replaced with a new one last year. I have fresh batteries in the unit. What is the problem? How do I fix it? Thank you. I love this unit and would like to keep it going. I have fixed two others for friends who needed the internal battery fixed. They use it as a backup. I have tried the Auto Locate procedure about 3 times. I have also tried clearing by holding the PAGE + Power. Then tried autolocate. Message "Upload... Not Present" still remains. Also have tried clearing by holding the MARK + Power. Then tried autolocate. Message "Upload... Not Present" still remains. Now I am wondering if this message has to do with an interrupted connection with EasyGPS from last winter. I was uploading waypoints, and thought it had completed and may have turned off and disconnected the plug before an operation was completed in saving waypoints off the Garmin 48. I do not know this for a fact, but that was the last operation I recall doing last fall, before starting the GPS up again on the boat this spring. I have also tried to connect the unit to Easy GPS via the serial port, thinking perhaps it would complete whatever it is trying to do. I have tried uploading routes and downloading routes via EasyGPS send and recieve and it does not seem to work. I wonder now if the interface setting has been reset, by my pressing PAGE+power and Mark + Power earlier. I would not mind that if the menus came up properly, but that is not happening. Is there some other way to kick it out of this mode? I turn it on and there is the message "Upload...Not present" and none of the menu buttons work to get it into the normal startup screen mode..... I've tried Quit, Page, Enter, Goto, Mark, Power (off and on), and none of the get the computer out of this mode and back into the normal menus for startup. I've removed the antennae and checked all the contacts and that seems fine, and reinstalled. Is there some small reboot button inside that I can jumper? I have tried taking the internal battery out and letting it sit for three days and it still does the same thing. Any suggestions would be appreciated
