Hello, my name is***** to Justanswer! Give me just a few minutes to look up some specifics, I'm working on this now.

Expert:  littlerusty2005 replied 7 months ago.

Once you remove the two screws, you will see two shiny discs. Those are the batteries, they are used in watches, and other small electronics. There is a number on each battery, and you can get a replacement at any electronics or drug store.

When I remove the 2 screws, nothing happens - am I supposed to pry the whole back from the front?
Customer: replied 7 months ago.
Hello
Expert:  littlerusty2005 replied 7 months ago.

The little plate that the two screws are holding down is what comes off. Not the entire back. Slide the plastic plate where the screws used to be. Slide it down, and you'll be able to lift it off.

Customer: replied 7 months ago.
The back is all one piece!
Expert:  littlerusty2005 replied 7 months ago.

It's not built like that. The piece where you removed the two screws, press on that and try sliding it.

Customer: replied 7 months ago.
Is it supposed to slide UP or DOWN??
Expert:  littlerusty2005 replied 7 months ago.

With the screw holes on the bottom, slide it down. It's just an access door.

Customer: replied 7 months ago.
The screws are on the back at the top.
Expert:  littlerusty2005 replied 7 months ago.

Ok, then slide the top plate up.

Customer: replied 7 months ago.
It doesn't budge
Expert:  littlerusty2005 replied 7 months ago.

Take a look at this picture, this is what it is designed to look like when the cover is removed.

Customer: replied 7 months ago.
Mine's different - the back is all one piece.
Expert:  littlerusty2005 replied 7 months ago.

Give me just a couple of minutes...

Expert:  littlerusty2005 replied 7 months ago.

I'm having trouble finding information on the D model. Do you have a way to send me a picture of the calculator?

I have time if you do.

Customer: replied 7 months ago.
Where is it?
Expert:  littlerusty2005 replied 7 months ago.

My site looks different than yours, I'll have you call the Justanswer office, they will be able to direct you right to it. Call 1-***-***-****, and I'm standing by for the picture.

Customer: replied 7 months ago.
There's no paperclip. What now?
