Opening a cordless handset

    I have a Panasonic cordless handset from a 2.4 GHz digital answering
    system. I stupidly left it outside last night, and we had
    thunderstorms during the night.

    Believe it or not, the phone operates, but there's still some moisture
    in there. I need to get it opened up before components have time to
    corrode or rust or do whatever they're going to do if they stay wet.

    There are two screws behind the battery, but there don't seem to be any
    others holding this thing together. Should I be able to pry it apart
    after removing the screws, or are there some hidden ones somewhere?

    Thanks!

    On some models there are some plastic locking tabs in the upper part. You
    can very carefully release them with a thin screwdriver blade. Take car to
    not damage the case.

    On some models, also, there can be screws under a label, or under the phone
    number plate in the front of the phone below the display.

    Hi Tracey...

    Don't know that model, but used to service a gazillion of them.

    If yours has a little plastic piece with a slip of paper under it...
    don't know what to call it, but the thing on which you'd write your
    telephone number, then remove the plastic (it's flexible) and the
    paper and find one or two screws under it.

    Take care.
