Replacing lithium battery in FL-7000

Replacing lithium battery in FL-7000

Post by pr.. » Fri, 02 Jun 1995 04:00:00

I came into possession of a Yaesu FL7000 autotuner/amp which is
about 9 years old.  The autotuner section is powered by a
lithium battery which is good for about 5 years, so saith the
manual.  The autotuner is currently slow and forgetful, not unlike
its new owner, and its problem is probably a bum battery.  There's
nothing in the manual about how to replace this battery, although
the schematic shows which microprocessor it's near.  Is there anyone
familiar with the FL-7000 and the technique for replacing the
battery before I do an unskilled foray into its innards, and where
a new battery can be purchased?  Thanks for your help.  73 de
