It was a good tutorial, but i have two plastic rings that stay after my instervention... Anyone knows where are-they ?

Note before starting. You need a T8 security bit (with a hole in the middle), not a standard T8 bit.

I took mine a part because it was looking dirty, gave it a good clean, putting it back together was easy but it wont work with the batteries anymore just the power core, there is nothing broken or cracked, any ideas?

Maybe you forced the battery contact on the wrong side of the case?

Alex is probably right. It's easy to let the two battery contacts on one side get covered by the bottom plate. Take battery cover off and compare the metal bits you see to a known good one.
