Use your fingernail to get underneath the battery cover latch. Proceed to remove the battery cover.
Be careful as this type of spring-clip is part of the cover itself and can break easily.
The plastic tabs at the bottom of the cover and the corresponding slots on the GameBoy unit must line up during re-assembly.
Pay close attention to the proper orientation of the batteries prior to insertion. This is clearly labeled inside the compartment.
After fresh AA alkaline batteries have been inserted correctly, replace the battery compartment cover with care.
Always use fresh batteries when replacing old ones. Never mix batteries as explained why in detail here: http://www.ehow.com/info_8523093_not-two...
