2) Just about everything else can be easily removed and replaced, including the battery, the memory daughter card, the front panel and the control wheels.

More later.
Hi

I'd be interested in a little more help for removing the back panel (I think I read that that was a screw holding it in?) and replacing the battery. My player has been freezing lately, and now it is just shutting off. I'm thinking the battery is dying. I was going to order a new one.

Thanks

Greg

There's a small plastic disc at the bottom edge of the back panel, to the left of center. You have to pry it off to get to the screw underneath.
