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?
