Batteries for Playaways
The library does not supply batteries for Playaways, but one may have been left in the player by a previous user.
How do I know how much battery life is left?
The Playaway has a small battery icon that is displayed on screen. There are three levels of battery life reflected in the icon. When one bar is left in the battery icon, you have 20% power left.
How do I change the battery?
Locate the battery door at the wide base of the player (the door is covered with the small title label on the wide base). Then, use your thumb or a coin to push the door away from the player so it snaps off. Some battery covers may be harder to remove then others, so you may have to use a bit of force or a tool to help it off. Once you have the battery door off, remove the old battery and replace with a fully charged battery. Lastly, snap the cover back into place.
