My Treasure Mate let out some parts.

So I was pulling the battery out of my Treasure Mate, and if you own one, you know how sometimes the battery likes to stay put. Anyway, as I pulled it out, some little headers came out with it.

I'm only guessing here, but I think these headers are used as a battery stop.

I placed the new battery in there, but I am afraid it might fall too deep inside.

I am hoping that someone may have opened one of these up. I'm guessing the on/off switch can be pulled out, and the 2 pots can be unscrewed and pushed in. And maybe the circuit board can be pulled out. I'm just guessing.

I figured out how to open it up.
I was guessing, and guessed correctly.

The issue with mine was that the GB and the TUNE pots no longer adjusted anything. both pots are 100k.

I can safely assume that the battery connector can break at the solder joints of the wires, over time.

Just ordered some replacement pots, and should arrive in about 4 days. Maybe sooner.

If anyone has questions about 'cracking' one open, message me. Or if you wanna send your to me to fix, I can do that too. I am an electronics genius after all.

peace.
