I've done most of the things I need with what's on the net.
Replacement of the battery was trivial. Finding out that it was the root
cause was a bit less than obvious. The input sensitivity calibration
always goes flat-line, being a huge factor of annoying you, as you would
need to trim it up on each power-up. It's done with menues and no
service-mode required. Replacing the battery is a matter of finding a
3,6V Lithium battery and do some soldering. Then after power-up do the
input calibration and you are all set for the next 20 years or so. It is
worth the effort and not hard at all.
