Introduction

This guide will aid the user in the replacement of the board, microphone, or battery compartment for this device. Note that because of the way the three different parts are connected, if one device needs to be replaced, all three parts will have to be replaced. If the user wishes to replace just one of the three devices, skills in soldering and soldering equipment would be needed.
