1390 battery removal\

Please don't attempt this yourself. You risk damaging the outer and inner bezel, stripping the case threads and damaging the LCD display that sits over the battery and printed circuit board. We receive emails from customers every week who have damaged their GPS by a botched battery replacement. Please see this link: SHARCNET USA Out of Warranty GPS Digital Camera Repair
