Im ready for my first battery change and need help. I opened the compartment and slid out the battery tray. However it stopped with only half the battery exposed. I don't want to pull too hard. Suggestions on what to do are appreciated.

I'll take a shot... I've changed mine several times. There is nothing that should be hanging up. I'll give you pictures of me changing mine. Maybe that will help?

unlatch the compartment

All the way out

Leads are pretty long

Look at this position - lift up until you get to here and pull the battery out and away from the guitar.
Going back in - Put the battery back like this so it is engaged with the connectors - then push down and in - the battery just pivots into place http://i976.photobucket.com/albums/ae245/Chutist/40BE2831-E5AB-45C1-9BF1-AAA8405302A6-5095-0000027858A0276B.jpg

Slide it back in until it latches and you're done. :D

Thanks Rango. I did some wiggling and was able to get the tray out. I assume a wire was caught up somewhere.
