Does M73 Tiny have a battery that can be replaced in order to solve clock reset after power outage?

2021-01-07, 16:49 PM

My M73 Tiny (10AY) resets the clock to 2012 after a power outage.  I am wondering if there is an internal battery that needs to be replaced.

Solved! See the solution

Look at page 212.  Here is the manual:

Do you know what kind of battery is there. I'd like to purchase it before taking it apart. Thanks in advance.

Looks like a good-old 2032.  Does this video match your machine?  Battery shown at ~1:38.
