  • Remove the gray battery cover by lifting from the front (near the IR window). Raise it at an angle and remove it to reveal the green battery compartment.

  • You can now remove the batteries and insert new ones.

To reassemble your device, follow these instructions in reverse order. The orientation of the gray battery cover doesn't matter.
