Question about Sony Handycam DCR-TRV30 Mini DV Digital Camcorder
The Sony DCR TRV30 has no clock battery at all! It has though an accu inside, which charges from battery pack. You just need to use the camcorder regularly to keep the accu charged! Anyway, you can charge it every 4 months by connecting the camcorder to mains for 24 hours (or just not letting the batery pack get empty). But if the accu is completely "dead", you need a professional service to change it.

This small back-up battery on my Sony is under the main big power battery, it is like a large screw under the main power pack, I just turn that screw and the little round lid comes off to get to the little silver flat back-up one.
They are readily available from most good camera shops like Jesops for around £12 to £15 each.

Tips for a great answer:
OKOK:At the time of purchase and after leaving the camera for a
long period with the batteries removed, settings such as the
date and time are cleared. Once the AC power adapter has
been connected or the batteries have been installed for 2
hours or more, the camera settings will be retained for
roughly 6 hours even if both sources of power are removed.
