Lives for gear
 

Hi
For a Recall, as you will be needing a new battery, presumably nimH nowadays as the older NicD are or should be obsolete you must take great care not to damage the through hole plating on the 3 pins. I would suggest cutting them with close fitting side cutters leaving a short 'stub' that you can then pull out individually rather than expecting to get all 3 pins clear at the same time.
Any grouping information that might have been stored will be 'lost' of course but I expect it would be reloaded when you run Showtime again.
Other than this there should be no problems. Cleaning the circuit board surfaces would be a good move of course.
