PLEASE NOTE: Patience and care, along with moderate technical and hand tool ability, are required for the successful
replacement of a Toshiba battery. Excessive force may result in damage to your PDA. The instructions below come
with no warranty, guarantee, proper, or improper assembly or use. The instructions below come with no warranty or
guarantee. By utilizing these instructions, you agree to hold Batteryship.com blameless and unaccountable for any and all
damages, problems, or personal injuries that may or may not arise by your use of these instructions. Replacing your
Toshiba battery may void any warranty you have on your PDA. Please read all instructions and back up your data
BEFORE replacing the battery. If your Toshiba is a different model number, use these instructions as a reference and
consult your owner's manual or a technician if necessary.
Make sure your PDA is off and your hold switch is activated. Then remove the four screws on the back of the PDA using
the included Phillips screwdriver. They will be located at the four corners of the device.
Remove the black plastic piece at the top of the PDA by sliding it upward.
Once the screws and the black plastic piece have been removed, GENTLY pry open the Toshiba case starting at the top
using the included plastic flathead screwdriver or any small flathead screwdriver. Pry all around the device until the back
cover comes open completely.
Lift off the back cover of the Toshiba and set it aside for reassembly. Make sure that you are grounded before coming into
contact with the PDA's internal parts.
You will see two small Phillips screws on the motherboard at the bottom of the PDA. Use the Phillips screwdriver to
remove them and set them aside for reassembly.
The motherboard will need to be partially disconnected in order to replace the battery. To accomplish this, first disconnect
the black and red speaker wires from the motherboard. Then press the clip at the bottom of the PDA away from the
motherboard to partially release the motherboard. It must remain connected to the PDA on one side by the gold ribbon
cable. Take care not to damage this cable while accessing the battery connector.
Note the location and orientation of the original battery, battery connector, and connector wires within the device. You will
see where the battery connects to the motherboard socket towards the top of the PDA. Disconnect the old battery at the
connector by CAREFULLY pulling outward on the connector with your thumb and forefinger or tweezers. Be very sure that
you are pulling outward on only the part of the connector that comes out, NOT on the entire socket or on the wires
themselves. Note how the battery wires travel through the motherboard to reach the connector- the new battery's wires
will go through the same way.
Remove the original battery from the battery compartment, using the plastic flathead to assist if needed. Be very careful
not to bend or break the battery as you remove it.
Making sure that your battery is facing the right direction, put the new battery's wires through the same opening that the
original battery wires used to reach the connector. Connect the new battery by pressing the connector at the end of the
battery wires into the socket. Note the location of the prongs in the socket of the Toshiba and the location of the plugs for
the prongs on the battery connector, and connect them accordingly. Do not press too hard or try to force the pieces
together. They will fit easily when correctly aligned. Place the battery in its seat.
Place the motherboard securely into the case and reattach the speaker wires to it. Replace the two screws at the bottom
of the motherboard. Press the back cover of the PDA on over the new battery. Replace the black plastic piece and screw
the four external screws back in. FULLY CHARGE your new battery before use. Allow at least three hours.
