    Yeah, you have to take the damn thing to the LDS. Sucks. I made the mistake of buying one too.

    Or you can send it back to Scuba Pro yourself. Not only will they change the battery but they will run a full diagnostic on your computer.

    Oh yeah, Welcome to the board!

    Roger on the LDS. I have been using aladin Pros for 14 years. You can change the battery for $3.00 on the old ones if you know where to get them. Someone must know how to do the new ones. Thanks anyway!

    My Aladin Pro is the Oil filled type and I've gotten as far as removing the back.
    I pried up the sides to unhook it from the computer. Do it carefully so as to not break it.
    Inside the back is the diaphram. Sealed and glue to the back. On one end is a bump that I assume is the battery. One place said that they used mineral oil from the drug store to refill
    with. I'm more leaning to 3 in one oil.

    The manual is available at the ScubaPro web site.

    The process is real easy! Working over a dish to catch any spill, use a small knife pry up one side at a time until the back unclips.
    Then pry out the black rubber seal that covers the circuit board. The battery is then exposed. Unclip the circuit board on the side
    with the battery and lift it up. Use something non-metalic to brace the circuit board up so as to make it easier to solder.
    Unsoldering and soldering the battery is up to your ability. Then return any spilled or removed oil and reverse the process to seal back the
    unit. Its not that difficult just take your time.
