Question about Monarch Paxar Pathfinder UltraGold 6037 Printer
The CMOS battery on this printer is a small Panasonic 2032 most typically from this manufacturer.
The error, specific to this printer, can happen for several reasons:
If your DOS software application running on the printer does not allow you to do this, please come back and I can give you a step by step solution to forcing the date into the printer.
Please note that with a good battery, 3V or higher, orientation correct (crown faces in), then you will likely have to either re-attach or replace the harness.
Though there are a couple of other issues that may cause this, these 4 cover 99% of all CMOS issues for this printer.
I say all of this because this issue can seem like one thing when it is something else. You can get a replacement battery from Radio Shack, and it just needs to be a good quality replacement for the one I listed.
Replacement is easy... remove the door at the bottom of the handle, remove the main battery pack. To the side, you'll see a coin cell, with a soft tipped tool or your fingers (not pliers or tweezers), remove the existing coin cell. Make sure you replace it in the exact same orientation.
The reason you do not want to use metal tipped tools is because you could short this battery out. You likely won't get hurt, but it will be annoying to have to keep replacing your coin cells because of this.
Also note that some users of this device do not use a coin cell because many IT folks find it unnecessary to worry about the real time clock and related functions.

Usually you will find your CMOS battery somplace on the motherboard inside your PC. Before opening the PC though make sure you will not be voiding any warranties that you may have had when you bought it.
Some CMOS batteries have a small screw clasp that holds the battery in but most you can just pop out and then push the new one back in.
The most common battery type is a flat watch battery type size 2032, but it would pay to check before you go out and buy the replacement.
Hope this is helpful.
