Question about VCRs
Daewoo VCR model DV-K985P has to be retuned after slightest power cut. Remember having a TV with same problem years ago. Assume has an inbuilt battery that needs replacing. How do i find it? Where can I get a replacement?
It is a capacitor numbered C501 and it's 0.01uf 5.5v.
You have to remove the mechanical part to get to the board.

Most of the late VCRs (since the '90s) didn't use a backup battery, but instead had a special high value electrolytic capacitor which serves as a temporary voltage source to maintain program info. If by chance it has a battery backup, I'd guess it is a button cell, something like what is used in a wrist watch. You'd find it on the main circuit board- perhaps soldered in. If it has the capacitor, perhaps the cap. is bad. This also will likely reside on the main circuit board. This may be shaped like a button cell also, but will have a plastic wraparound label with the voltage and farad values on it- perhaps like 1 farad 3 volt or something similiar. If someone has a more accurate diagnosis...
