    sculpt ergonomic keyboard numeric keypad issue


    I hope this is the correct forum to post this question.

    I just purchased the Sculpt ergonomic keyboard which included the numeric keypad. How do I open the battery compartment of the numeric keypad ? There seems to be a lock of some kind because it seem very hard to pry open. I don't want to use too much force . The battery compartments of the keyboard and mouse are held in magnetically.

    At the back of the numeric keypad there seems to be a round disk for a screw driver . Is this the lock?

    There are also two graphics below the round disk : a triangle with a vertical line and the other is just an "i" . What do these mean?

    Thanks

    Read the manual? If its not included download it. It should tell you what is what.

    Manual says nothing about the numeric keypad . However I managed to find that the battery cover is held in place with a screw at the location I indicted in my op.

    Glad you got it figured out, without breaking it.
