Mine finally died (probably died a long time ago, it's been years since I played last). I've read that it requires a 'CR2025' battery. What is the process for replacing the battery WITHOUT DAMAGING ANY OTHER COMPONENTS?
I checked that out. Then, I checked Crystal's sticky (I should have checked there first). However, I noticed that the instructions in the Silver's sticky differ from Crystal's sticky. Can I replace Crystal's battery following Silver's sticky exactly? What I mean is in Silver's sticky, it says to just use electrical tape to hold the metal tabs down, but in Crystal's sticky, it says to resolder the tabs back to the battery and use electrical tape to imitate the yellow band that was around the original battery. Does it make a difference if I use electrical tape or resolder the metal tabs and does it hurt if I don't use electrical tape to imitate the yellow band that was around the original battery?
As long as the battery is held in place. However, soldering is much harder than electrical tape and the risk of personal or circuit injury is high, so the Silver Sticky has more up-to-date instructions.
