replace the timekeeper battery

Hi, just look around the forum for info on changing the timekeeper chip or battery. It looks quite hard to do but is in fact fairly easy to do. What have you got to lose if it doesn't work anyway?

disc won't spin

timekeeper battery

Hi, I didn't replace the entire chip just the battery. It is fairly easy to do, just requires a little confidence. I used a dremel with a 2mm bit in it. But instead of drilling into the chip I used the side of the bit to par away the surface of the chip starting along the short edge of the chip. I s...
