VMU Keeps Resetting

Post#1 » Tue Oct 02, 2018 9:22 pm

Hi. I have a problem with a "brand new" translucent green VMU I added to my collection. It works fine, other than that it resets the clock (and makes a long "beeeeeep") whenever I turn the DC off, or whenever I give the VMU itself a good squeeze.

Is this a dead clock battery? I opened the VMU to see what it took, but I'm worried the little cylinder below where the speaker cables attach to the PCB is what I'd need to replace. I have NO idea what to even look for, as replacements go. Does anyone have any experience with this issue? :|

What I've Tried:
-New batteries
-Wiping down battery contacts
-Tightening screws

I'd appreciate any help!

Tough one to diagnose. Are you putting pressure on the screen? It has the least resistance.
