How do I use my digital radio with battery power?

My digital radio works fine when plugged into the mains, and it has a Lithium CR2032 battery compartment so I assume it should be battery-powered as well. I've just put a fresh battery in, but it doesn't work.

What make and model radio? Without knowing that, I'm inclined to believe that the CR2032 is there only to preserve the clock settings in case of a power outage (assuming the radio also has a clock). A CR2032 doesn't have enough power to run a radio for very long.

SOURCE: No power despite fresh batteries

I am having the same issue with mine. I think it has something to do with the contacts in the camera. Mine is 1 1/2 years old. Mine is probably out of warranty. If I could get down in the battery compartment I could fit it but it is pretty deep.

on rechargeable batteries, check the mAh on the side, you would need to be about 2300 or more. also the shelf life on some rechargeables may be less than desireable... try lithium digital

SOURCE: C913 camera will not turn on - after new batteries


Try to clean the battery terminals of the camera, if there is any kind of rust, remove it.

Keep the camera off for a day with battery and memory card taken out.

Now insert the battery and memory card in and switch it on.

If still theproblem persists then there is problem with the internal circuit as the charge from the battery is not flowing in it. Then you will have to take your camera to a Kodak Repair center to get it checked.

Good luck and have a nice day.

What is wrong with my Roberts CR9955 clock/radio?

Do you happen to see the "Low Bat" indicator on?

It may be worth trying to leave the unit powered off for a long time (= several minutes) and then retry.

You may try this over after removing and re-installing the battery (behind the cover with a screw on the bottom of the unit).

The battery is a frequently used CR2032 lithium cell, which you can find in many stores.

I have a think pad r40- 2681 whenever I turn it on I have to reenter the time and date thru sys config. I found the c-mos battery but it is encased in shrink tubing. What type of battery is it?

The battery is a CR2032/S5LE 3v 220mAh Lithium battery. These are readily available with leads attached. You can make up your own by buying a CR2032 cell with tags from your local electronic store or online from e.g. Radio Spares. See and search for CR2032

Seth thomas autoset wall clock not functioning. replaced both sets of batteries (AA and CR2032), still not working.

I wish I had a solution... I'm in the exact same situation. I put in new batteries, and all I get is a faint reading of gibberish from the LCD screen, and that's it. I've tried following the instructions, but I can't set the time in the LCD clock, since it's unreadable, and almost completely gone. has a web page indicating that "they will be back with info", but no support or FAQ pages. Disappointing... I have three of these clocks, and they are all behaving the same way.

I need a new power pack (Battery) for my PC. Part

Do you mean the CMOS battery? (The little round one on the motherboard?)
In this case, you can replace the battery with a standard CR2032 lithium battery (3 volt, 220mAH rating). You get that at Walgreens, Radio Shack etc.
For how to replace the battery, take look at page 9 of the manual.
If you don't have one, you can download it here.

If you are looking for another battery, just come back here and leave a comment. I will check back and be happy to help.
