Thanks for the great tutorial and all the help, Finally got to the battery YAY.. now if only I could find a way to fix my other one, it's little brother, The BTX300 It's a little different than the 500 to get into Although the battery is extremely easy, but I don't know where to start after that, even with the side kick stand I can't figure out how to get into the darn thing,

I need to fix / replace the yellow plastic part/ CONNECTION on the rear of the speaker for the charging port, unfortunately the yellow plastic piece broke after a fall when it was plugged in, It still worked until it lost the charge, so I can't charge it at all, just leaving the 2 pins sticking up inside the hole there,

If there's any kind of idea how to do this and replace the part or even if I had to a "duck tape & binder twine" solution if I could get it to just charge, they are great Bluetooth speakers

IF ANYONE HAS ANY IDEAS PLEASE PLEASE LET ME KNOW ☺️I Would be so great full,

Kindest Regards

Where can I buy the battery to replace it?

Andrei, try contacting Sony to determine where you can buy a new battery. They would know for sure and I don't want to tell you the wrong thing.

Luckystyx, wish we could help you out more but we only know how to fix the 500. Sorry about that!

I am desperate to source a battery, too. If anyone finds one, please post where you got it! I like this speaker a lot!

Oh, and Sony says the battery is only replaceable by an authorized Sony representative and I sure don't have one of those handy!
