I have a 4 year old ABC atomic pathfinder with tough solar (PAW-1400T-7VCR) that has stopped responding to buttons and indicates "OPEN" on the screen (along with a free-running clock display). It has never been opened! In looking through the postings it looks like it might be an indication that the rechargeable battery is dying, or it might indicate a dead module.
I'm new to working on these critters, can anyone confirm that this problem is indeed likely to be the rechargeable battery? If so, any pointers to information on how to replace the battery? The four screws on the back appear to partially hold a plastic trim piece in place, but it appears that "something" associated with the wristband also need to be removed in order to get access to the actual watch case screws. Like I said I'm new to this :)
Thanks in advance for any suggestions!
