Introduction

This guide will teach users how to pry open the back cover, and remove screws in order to access the battery.

Starting just above one of the page-turning buttons, pry open the back of the device using a pry tool, or similar plastic opening tool. Do not attempt to pry directly on the page turning buttons. This will damage the buttons. If you are having trouble getting an initial gap to pry from, run the flat edge of the pry tool along the front-to-back plate seam until it slips into a gap.
