So...This given by my grandmother and it is out of battery. Unluckily, it won't charge, because the %#*@ old battery had gone kaput. I had a hard time finding one that might be suitable, and turnout that I need to insert it into the device and connect it to the circuit board. I have some solid soldering skills, but without a heat gun, the andonized cover won't come off. And what's more, I jammed a pencil tip into the "reset" hole when trying to reset the device. Thinking the big opening was a kind of cover-releasing button...I was just having a whole lot of trouble and thinking too much. !&&*.
