Take it back to where you got it. It should not be broken after such a short time?

Not a minor repair. You have to remove two circuit boards and their attached wiring to replace, plus the camera covers

How do I change cmoss battery? THNX

The cmos battery is usually a dime shaped battery located on the motherboard inside the computer. It is normally just held in place by a small piece of metal that is under pressure. Open the pc and locate the battery. The location on the motherboard will vary depending on the manufacturer. Use a small screwdriver to release the pressure on the metal piece and the battery should pop out. Always replace with the same model of battery, it will be written on the top of it.

I bought a watch and we can't get it to work. We think the battery needs to be changed.

If you take a look at the back of the watch, look for screws holding on the back plate. If there are screws (usually, if they are there there is one in each corner -- unscrew them. If there are no screws in the back of the watch, look VERY carefully at where the backing for the watch connects to the front piece of the watch. There should be a small indentation somewhere along the rim -- use a knife or a small screwdriver in that groove and pop the watch backing off.
Once you have the back of the watch off, you will see the battery right there. Sometimes they just pop out (held in by the watch back) ... sometimes there is a small piece of metal holding it in (in which case you should try to rotate the metal piece off the battery -- don't bend it).
Once the battery is out, take it to a store that sells watch batteries and match the battery type exactly (a lot of watch batteries look the same, but you need an exact match). Put the new battery in, cover it with the metal tab (if there was one) by rotating the tab back over the battery like you found it. Put the watch backing back on (and replace the screws if there were any).
Hopefully, that will kick start your watch for you, and you should be all set :-)

How to replace CMOS battery from dg41 mother board

It's easy, but If you haven't ever taken a computer apart or performed any elementary PC repair, Don't try to do anything like this as you might hurt your PC.

  1. Buy a CR2032 battery from a watch shop/electronics shop/computer shop.
  2. Unplug the computer from the power source and ground the computer's chassis with a piece of wire (Safety measure to protect computer from ESD).
  3. Open computer chassis.
  4. Find the battery on the motherboard (exact location can differ between different motherboards): nipunag.jpg
  5. Squeeze outwards the small metal tab that protrudes from near the battery's edge to make the old battery pop out.
  6. Place the new battery in the same place ( + sign facing up)
There. You're done.

Battery does not charge

Try cleaning the metal connectors that make contact when you charge the battery, also clean the connectors on the charger to. If any of these metal pieces seem to be broke or crooked then try to straighten them,this will make any connection as good as new. If this doesn't help, then a; the battery is not functioning and would need replacement, b there is an internal problem with the drill. Check the charger to make sure it is functioning normal by comparing the charge light to the corresponding meaning. The meaning of the charge light on the charger is usually printed on the top of the charger. If following this doesn't result in you finding a problem with the unit, then it would be time to replace it.

Hope this helped some if so (or not )please rate, thank you!

Battery installation or replacement there is a plastic piece or block that is shaped to fit aginst the battery and the metal plate that the battery sits on. I cannot figure out how to install this piece to...

The plastic piece is wedge shaped with a machine screw that runs down the middle. Your battery has a ridge that should lock under the edge of your metal battery tray, so the plastic wedge should force the battery back towards the edge of the metal tray.

Indiglo backlight works, but beep/chimes doesn't

There should be a RESET switch right beside the battery slot. It is usually either the 2 pins that allow the battery cover to hinge up or down, or a metallic strip right beside the hinge. You will see the word RESET underneath the metal strip with a small round metal piece right below it. You need to take a small jewelers screwdriver and push the metal strip down to make contact with the small round metal piece. This will reset everything back to working order. You can then go ahead and set the time, date, etc. Sometimes it is necessary to reseat the battery and do the RESET one or two extra times but it should reset. If after all these steps you still can't get your chimes to work you may have to get your watch looked at.

Take the battery pack off, there are two coiled springs that touch the batteries.
Stretch these springs up slightly, but not too much.
Then replace the battery pack.
