Directed recommends you refer to your
for specific instructions regarding your remotes battery and replacement.
Older Model Remotes
In older remotes you will need to locate a small, single screw on the back of the
remote (these are usually black, 2-button remotes). Remove that screw and the case
will separate in the middle exposing the circuit board/battery. These batteries
are usually 12 volts, and are smaller than a AAA battery. Simply match the model
number of the battery at your local drug store and replace.
New Model Remotes
On newer remotes there is no screw, there is a small notch in the seam of the two
halves of the remote, usually towards the bottom of the remote. Take a flat blade
screwdriver and gently pry the two halves apart using this notch. This will expose
the circuit board and the battery. The battery on newer remotes is usually a CR2016,
CR2032, etc, these batteries are about the size of a nickel and you will want to
replace the battery once every 12 months to ensure proper and reliable operation.
Some models such as the HD have a rechargeable battery that does not need to be
replaced under normal use.
