Hi vortical,

You didn't happen to use one of those Energizer cheap arsed batteries when you replaced it did you or an eBay battery?

A lot of people purchase the Energizer Button Cells, they are Indonesian made and last sometimes less than 6 months, and some of the cheap eBay ones last less time. Ordinarily Energizer batteries are pretty good, but not button cells.

I use the maxwell Japanese cells, last for years... Just a thought...

As for your unit, yeah if it hasn't had a PSU rebuild, that will be right around the corner for sure and the hard drive probably not far away...

Bring on the SKIPPA!

Hi Ian,

No that's odd for a 2400, I doubt it's the battery... Possibly some fault with the front panel board, battery not likely. Hmmmmm, I have one here, I'll have a look and see what I can figure out...

Yep fingers crossed vortical, hope these are a great unit...

As for your 7100, the issue you have is a flat battery on the front panel PCB, you need to take the front panel out as its on the front of the PCB. It's a CR2032.

It's a common issue, machines are getting old and the batteries usually only last 4 to 5 years or so max.

I cannot wait to see what apps are available from the store... If something like ES file explorer was to be available, potentially it could allow full access to network shares to copy recordings off the unit easily, but I'll bet there are no file explorer apps to download, siggghhhhhh, time will tell...

Fingers crossed.
