    Hi guys my computers battery is after dying. I got it second hand and it came with a factory warranty card.

    Stupid question I know.

    This is the first time this happened.

    I’m just wondering can I take out the battery myself? Without buying a technician set of tools or do I have to bring it to my LDS and pay to get it changed?

    Thanks

    If you are changing it, have a good look at the Oring and if there is any damage (cracking, tears etc) replace it. If it is intact, give it a light smear with silicone lube before reinstalling.

    I brought my Zoop to a dive shop with my reg and had both refreshed at the same time. No need to send it to the factory.

    my wife had a zoop. when the battery died, you need to change the o-ring along with the battery according to the instructions. unfortunately, the dive shop did not have the o-ring, and ended up buying a mares computer on the spot. i would suggest you get a couple extra batteries and o-rings for it.
