I can't even get that far with it. My battery door only slides out a few mm and sticks. The rest of the keyboard has no screws, just 2 metal bars under the sticker...

A danish proverb says: "Never use violence - take a bigger hammer!". To open the battery lid I took a screwwdriver that exactly fit in the slice and pulled till it opened. No violence - just raw force.

NEW BATTERY EASY!!

Spoke to Logitech, well chatted on the web. Having problems with my K750 K.B. not working, not responding, odd results when solar app run & random keys working/not working.

Keyboard just out of warranty, they couldn't make any suggestions to cure the problem or repair it. Oh they don't have a repair facility (No Really!!).

Seeing how easy battery replacement I decided it was worth a try. 2 new batteries on Ebay from China only £5.25. Arrived in 5 days, taking old one out easier than I thought.

New one in, 2 hours charge & it works like a dream.

Like to hear a joke about the saga?

Sticker on old battery, conceals the information says DO NOT REPLACE BATTERY.

How dare they, beyond belief! Suppose we throw out a perfectly good £70 keyboard for the sake of a couple of quid? Not Likely!!

This and a whole lot more typed without any problem whatsoever on the K750 since the new (cheap) battery.

Shame on you Logitech!!

There's a guide for handling this, which notes that it is:

a) difficult to remove, and

b) an ML2032 (not CR2032), which is rechargeable. Guide to Logitech K750 Keyboard Battery Replacement

I would surmise that their tech support has had bad experiences with people replacing the battery with the non-rechargeable battery (which could, theoretically, explode, given that it's a lithium cell).

From what I understand, the problem is that if you put in the wrong kind of battery there is a fire hazaard, so then it becomes a liability issue for Logitech. So the fault really isn't Logitech it's our litigious society. That being said, to be treated like an idiot unable to replace a battery with the correct type does appear to be an insult. After all, we were smart enough to buy the keyboard, but not smart enough to replace a battery. Hmmmm.

It's not about litigiousness, there's a real risk. There's a lot of energy in lithium batteries, and although the ml-2032 looks the same as the more common and cheap cr-2032, it's harder to find and there's a real risk.

How did you get the battery door out. It only comes out a little bit and then stops

As I've stated above, just pull it out. You have to use quite some force but it will come out eventually without breaking
