Olympia, and/or Sharper Image infoglobe. Need fix.
It appears that you have already removed the 4 screws. The globe will not just fall off, it has to be pried. Take a small- bladed screwdriver or a small-bladed pocket knife and gently pry from any small opening you see between the globe and its base. Work the blade around the globe and it will come off. I just did it and now I'm trying to figure out how to get inside the "guts" of the globe. Will keep you advised.

Owners manual for infoglobe wanted
The manual for your Olympia InfoGlobe Cordless Phone
is not available anywhere online.
The manufacturers of this phone did not make it available. I went
further searching and couldn't find any.
I would suggest you
contact the manufacturer of this phone via phone or e-mail and
request for the manual from them. They might give it to you or direct
you to a dealer where you can get the manual.
This is the best you can do to get the manual you are requesting for.
Go to Olympia's website, check "Contact Us" and you would see
their e-mail and phone number.

I have a sharper image
Just fixed mine tonight. Follow instructions on http://www.linux-hacker.net/InfoGlobe/
for globe removal. I used a .020" feeler guage. The solder joints onthe small circuit board at the end of the arm are subject to vibrationfrom operation and about a bazillion revolutions before failing. You'llneed a good quality soldering iron with a fine tip, some solder wick, abit of patience and a bright light and some reading glasses will nothurt. I removed the solder and then the small board. I'm using an 800degree tip, so with something like that you want to get on/off the padsas fast as reasonably possible so you don't cook it. Then I re-tinnedthe traces and re-soldered the small board onto the end of the arm. Atfirst it didn't want to light up, but on depressing the "Select"button, all was good. Happy to have ol' blue back up and running again:~)
Hope i helped.
Thanks for using "Fixya".
