How do you replace the Internal Battery?

#1Dead_Hippie_ManPosted 11/7/2009 8:35:21 PM
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?

thanks for any advice!

Come to think of it:

Does Gold/Silver require the same Battery (if not, what is that batteries "code"?)

The Silver Sticky has the instructions. And yes, all GB(C) games use the same battery.

Why bother making a signature?

Thank you.

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.

It isn't worth it, TC. I replaced mine and it died less than a year later, completely destroying everything I had done. Just let the game rest in peace and wait for HG/SS.

Then you didn't replace the battery correctly. A properly placed battery should last just as or longer than the original.

I replaced the battery perfectly, thank you.

Here's the deal: the soldered ends of the tabs stay soldered onto the circuit board. If you accidentally yank them off in your attempt to pry to old battery off, you'll need to resolder them back on.

As for the tape, that's to keep the tabs onto the battery. Using solder to do this is just a more secure, yet more difficult way to do it.

Thank you.

Yes, yes you can. Both guides are interchangeable.
