We've come a long way with different members who tries to repair the CD-i timekeeper battery; you may remember Terratron's repair guide and some additional tips given on Interactive Dreams, but the whole procedure remained difficult. Now CD-i member "nrg78" made a full picture guide, see below which might help you through the process if you want to extend the life of your CD-i player!
Comments by "nrg78": "After opening the case, looking for the IC... initial cut with a sharp blade, then started peeling... second layer, not hard as a normal IC would be, so started scrapping... battery shows up, when I managed to get the MINUS plate away from the old battery, I decided to try and solder the PLUS wire directly on the battery, but the solder didn't stay, so I kept on scrapping until i've managed to pop the battery out, revealing the PLUS connect plate... kept on scrapping until reveall the elsewhere so called "wires", and soldered my wires there."
