Question about Dell 1600n All-In-One Laser Printer
Hmmm..maybe it's a left over from Y2K, or Y20004?..Just kidding..The RTC(Real Time Clock) settings on most printers, are preset with a drop down date, which can be managed in the CMOS. Menu has that option, under settings. However, why it's not holding the time after turn off, is most likely a function of the CMOS battery, as you've figured out.
However, that battery is on the controller board, and is usually swapped out as part of the board replacement. I'm sure, if you open up the unit(takes a few steps), you can find a part number on that battery(should be on extreme lower left of the board). Finding an exact replacement, form, fit, and function, is another thing.

sounds like when it wasn't printing properly, you tried to print several times, not realising that prints which were not printed at the time were being stored to print when the printer was available.
you need to check the print queue, by clicking on the printer icon in the bottom right hand corner of the screen(by the clock)
you should be presented with a list of pending documents, which you can delete or suspend as required.
if the printer icon cannot be found next to the clock you can find it under START>settings>Printers
