I will pay for this answer, but I have no intention of joining an on-going monthly fee service. Is that our current understanding?

Hi, I’m Louie. Sorry you had to wait awhile but I’ll do my best to help.

Initially, yes; the backup battery powers the reset IC U11 that feeds the main CPU. This coin battery is labeled as BT1 and is a 3V CR2032. Please click HERE.

Are you then considering a DIY (do-it-yourself) repair approach? If yes, the video tutorial HERE would shed further insight.
