just change urself la. less than 5mins job. very easy onli  ;D

no test pen but tried using some sharp objects to pry open the case...

wow must say very difficult to pry open...think must use some considerable strength to pry open...

worry that the sharp object may accidentally damage the internal circuit board..hence didnt force further...

Thanks! Manage to change the battery. Hope to have more of these Knowledge Sharing Info. Maybe can have a "room" solely for knowledge sharing and DIY tips.

P.S: Just tried to replace my rear back lamp on my own. Manage to unscrew the nut. But can't pull the cover out. Maybe can have a picture on how to DIY like the I-key battery replacement.

Thanks for the advice.  :smile:

Couldn't get the test pen you mentioned, so I wrapped some tape around the tip of a screwdriver, and opened the ikey shell.
My original Sony battery lasted for 2.5 years!
