Hello everybody

Nothing to be afraid of.

 

Remove all screws from top and bottom of case. Note the longer and shorter screws and where they go.

 

There are another 4 screws (I believe) that hold the XLR board in place. Remove them and the ribbon cable if you are comfortable with that. I think you can still change the battery without completely removing the XLR board.

I did it myself a year ago or so.

It´s easy as long as you do it carefully and paying attention ( as jason says about the screws).

and make sure about the battery model needed, there´s a very common battery used in domestic devices with an almost exact name that is a little bit smaller.

Keep a close eye on it for the first few days. I've had unreliable batteries in the past, as well as a poor connection of the battery.

Okay 

Thank you for advice !

When installing a replacement internal battery, it is a good idea to carefully burnish the contact areas of the unit and the battery.  Also a drop of electrical contact cleaner such as Deoxit on the contact points is a good idea.  So little current travels through those contacts that any resistance from oxidation can be an issue.  The same reason you should occasionally roll the AAs in a remote control as it burnishes the contacts.

 

Also, it's not a bad idea to roll AAs as you install them into a transmitter although a transmitter draws more current so oxidation is less of an issue.
