Anyone ever taken apart a 525?

I have a cat hair behind my screen.. don't know how it got in there. I tried to take it apart, but it feels like it will snap the plastic if I pull too hard. Has anyone ever managed to pull it apart?

Yeah,i've taken mine apart.Have you undone the screws under the batteries cover?
Then get yourself a stanley blade,put it into the groove along the outside of the 525 and use it by twisting it in the groove,doing this way will ensure you've spread the force over a wider area than say using a screwdriver so saving you from cracking it etc

I totally Agree with the technique Oily described,
but whilst you have it gutted...

Get some contact cleaner (lighter fluid or Smirnoff are reasonable alternatives) & use a cotton bud to wipe all the circuit board button contacts.

Mine now works like new, just a shame its been chewed, thrown & dropped for the last 4 years.
-but that is the joy of children!

I have lighter fuel, might risk it. :)
