Capable of running off alkaline batteries, an AC power adaptor and rechargeable batteries, the Dewalt radio can work in any situation.

  1. 1

    Unplug the device and unscrew all eight of the fastener screws holding the two parts of the outer shell together. Remove the screws from the back. Use a flathead screwdriver to pry open the two halves (Dewalt glues the case shut during the manufacturing process).

  2. 2

    Open the case. Locate the two fuses near the bottom of the front case. Identify the fuses --- small cylinders about an inch long with glass sandwiched between two metal ends. Remove the busted fuses.

  3. 3

    Insert the new fuses into the holders. Snap the case closed. Screw the fastener screws back into place to seal the outer case. Plug in the device and check that it is working.
