    • The Batteries are now exposed and the calculator is face down with the back towards you.

    • Remove the bottom batteries by pressing the battery towards you while pulling it out from the far end.

    • If you can not do the previous step with your finger try using a flat ended tool such as an Ipod opening tool.

    • After the bottom battery has been removed push or slide the other(top) battery towards you until it is fully exposed in the battery slot.

    • Now simply remove the battery.

    • Using the Ipod Opening Tool pull up on both sides of the rectangular module while keeping the rest of the calculator flat on a surface face down

    • You may get a lot of resistance from the module. Do not use too much force as you risk damage. Use small amounts of force to work the module out.

    • Pull out the rectangular module when it is finally loose enough.

    • Now pull up on the back cover of the calculator while holding the rest of it flat on a surface.

    • Be careful not to tilt the front of the calculator at this point. The keyboard buttons are now unsupported and will fall out of place.

    Some models might require removing the two battery screws before the back cover can be pulled up. These screws are somewhat smaller than the others but can easily be removed with the same screwdriver.

    • Here we will use the front panel, separate from the motherboard

    • Make sure not to tilt this part unless you want to remove all the keys from the face plate.

    • Remove the rubber contact lying on top of the keys.

    Adicionar comentário

    • With the rubber contact removed the keys can now be removed to be replaced, cleaned, or manipulated in other ways.

    • To aid the removal of individual keys you can use the Ipod Opening Tool or preferably a pair of tweezers.

    • When placing the keys back into the faceplate you have to make sure that they are going in the right direction.

    • You can tell which way is up by a semicircular extrusion on the back of a key.

    • The gray and blue keys have the extrusion on the upper left hole looking at the back of the key.

    • The black keys on the other hand have the extrusions on the lower left hole looking at the back of the key.

    • Use the pictures shown here as guides for where the keys should go if the keys fell out or you simply chose to remove them.
