So easy to do. I’m up and running again!

when you put the battery tray back in, you have to push it kind of hard to get it to go all the way in. I didn’t have a spudger but was able to use an ice pick (gently) and then a small flat screw driver.

What if you don’t have a spider? Is there anything else that you can use to open the battery tray?

You can use something pointy instead of a Spudger. For example: A pair of scissors ✂️. You can open them with the pointy blade. Thanks!
