How to replace the built-in battery of the livescribe pulse pen
can you help me to replace the battery of the built-in battery of the livescribe pulse pen?
Here is a quick answer and a few things I found out so far. Sorry I have to post this as an answer but I do not know how to attach images to comments. this is from here Camera. Seventy times a second, the pen photographs specially printed paper within a radius of seven millimeters, using a camera and an infrared diode behind the point to read a pattern of dots. The pen uses the photographic information to map its location against the complete pattern.
A Samsung Arm 9 processor runs the pen's software, including the algorithms that track its position.

You can open the pen by putting him into the oven at 100C° for a few minutes. Then you can seperate the upper and the under metal part. The connection is very strong, so you have to pull and warm it several times.
I was not aware of the OLED issue. Mine is also dead. I spoke with them last night 5/28/15 and here is what they sent me.
Stinks that they want $50 and the old pen, but here it is.

This company does not stand by its product. I went through their resolution process regarding my smartpen not working. In the end it was a battery issue (pen not staying charged) and the company would only issue a $45 credit towards the purchase of another pen. Since we must register the pen upon purchase to receive their warranty, you would think a responsible company would have notified me, they found a problem with their pens and the pen must stay charged at all times. I didn't receive any such notification from the company. I guess their main goal is to sell more pens, will my mission is to inform everyone DO NOT buy anything from this company.
Found the company that makes the OlED screen and possibly the battery too.
The company is Solomon Systech.
It was printed very small. I had to use a magnifying glass to see it.
Hopefully we can give them our business and do our own refurbishment.
Mmmmmmkkkayyy livescribe .......
if any body filing a complaint against this company please add me too. I have two sky wifi pen both not working. The display gone bad. When I call them.. one of it is out of warrenty. The second one I just opened it.. because of no display i cannot register it. I dont have the receipt either. So they wont replace it. The problem with the OLED display is common on all their products and now they claim that it is fixed in the new models. If they know that there is a problem.. then why they cant at-least fix it one time for the customers who initiate a call. This is kind of ripoff.. Dont buy any thing from them..!@#$%^&*(
Batteries are available on different Chinese sites (Alibaba). Search for ICR12300.
