ADVISOR Gold FLX Pager Battery
Replacement (rear view)
Battery Information
Your pager is designed to operate with a single AA-size
alkaline battery (carbon zinc batteries are not recommended). See the diagram on the following page for the
battery door location.
To install or replace the battery, place the pager face
down and proceed as follows:
➊ Unlock the battery door by sliding the door latch
away from the battery door.
➋ Slide the battery door in the direction of the arrow
(toward the outer edge).
➌ Lift the battery door away from the housing to
remove it. Lift the battery out of the battery compartment, taking note of the positive (+) and negative (-)
markings on the battery and the pager housing.
15
To install a new battery, reverse this procedure, taking
note of the positive (+) and negative (-) markings.
CAUTION: Do not insert the battery backwards or the
messages stored or locked in memory will be erased.
Care of Your Pager
To maintain the fine optical quality of the display in the
pager, do not subject it to extreme temperatures and
moisture.
Cleaning Your Pager
To clean smudges and grime from the exterior of the
housing, use a soft, nonabrasive cloth moistened in a mild
soap and water solution. Rinse the surface using a second cloth moistened in clean water. Do not immerse the
pager in water. Do not use any other cleaning solutions.

Your pager, properly handled, is capable of many
years of trouble-free service.
