Hello Mccariel,

The internal, 3.6 V NiMH battery on the main board acts as an alarm backup and maintains the nonvolatile RAM memory when the Monitor is off or away from AC mains. Normally, the Electronically Erasable Programmable Read Only Memory (EEPROM) is a chip that is used to store the calibration and other "setting" variables that have to be maintained in the event of a complete power failure. It is possible that a backup battery replacement is required.
