After approximately 2 years of use, you are likely to see a deterioration in the performance of the rechargeable battery in your CED7000 shot timer. This is normal, and a familiar situation with all cell phone, PDAs and other devices using small rechargeable batteries.
You can purchase this new battery and replace it yourself; however, you must do so with caution, as the small connectors and parts in your timer can easily be damaged if mishandled.
- Remove the small screws from the back of the timer, and then using a flat blade knife, pry open the two halves of the timer. Try to unlock both sides before gently pulling them apart, you want to pull the halves straight away from each other, not at an angle, as there are two sets of plugs that are being unplugged as you separate the parts.
- In the oldest models, there are wires connecting the two halves (first and second production only, for timers dating back to June-July 2006). In this case, do not separate the parts too far apart, as you do not want to pull the wires loose.
- Unplug the old battery, and insert the new one. Use a piece of double sided tape or warm glue to hold it in place so it does not rock around. Assemble the timer again, pay attention to align the plugs correctly, as well as the small plastic lip between the top Start and Review buttons. Press the two halves together until they click into place, and reassemble the screws.
Do not over tighten the screws!
Please think of the environment when disposing the old battery, most shopping centres and hardware stores have recycling facilities for these type of batteries.
