My friend is using an IBM 4695 point of sale terminal in his shop and it runs Win 95 (yes Win 95!!). The system clock is showing 1980 so it looks like the Mbd battery has gone west. Any ideas if it can be replaced and how? I can't even get the case off yet! Any help, greatly appreciated.
Have a look on page 63 and page 86 of Hardware Service Manual click here They show differnt battery with different models if i have it right. dfh's link seems to show a standard cmos battery, good luck with it anyways.
Thanks people for your contributions. Sparkly, thanks for the definitive manual. It is a 211 model so I presume Page 63 applies? Therefore it is not a coin type lithium. Di you think the mbd will sustain a straight and quick swop of batteries or will it require other attentions?
Hi Legslip "Di you think the mbd will sustain a straight and quick swop of batteries or will it require other attentions?" The 64 million $ question as with all changes you should allways backup just incase, and as described on page 63
5. When you install a new battery , you must restore the CMOS RAM data . You can do this in any of the following ways: v Running RESTORE CMOS RAM from the Service Diskette if you ran BACKUP before removing the battery. See “Service Diskette Introduction” on page 7. v Using the setup diskette (if available). v Running the ROM-based setup program. See “Running Setup” on page 109. It looks as though you will have to follow the hand book instructions just to be on the safe side.
