backup battery replacement for DX7 TX
I know there are people that have done this but I couldn't find much info about it. My computer is an antique by today's standards and I miss a lot because of it but when you're on a fixed income you gotta save where you can. Thanks. any links to videos or walkthroughs would be really good.

I understand that cell lithium replacement for futaba, JR are easy and with no harm.

For spektrum, on the other hand, doing such a procedure could be dangeruos to your transmitter.

Is it best to send it in to Spektrum to have it done?

Does anyone know how much Horizon charges to do the battery replacement?

Yes.

Dx7 has a known problem related to "backup error", cause by battery disconnection while TX still in ON position.

So, reflash the transmitter is the solution. Very bad!

I can't imagine trying to disconnect the backup battery for this Dx7 and put a new one...

Tony at Radio South was able to answer my questions so I'm relieved about that issue with the DX7s. The worst case is a trip to Horizon Hobby which still services their products for any other issues.

There's no backup battery in any of the DX radios.

Turning the power off does a save of current settings. Leaving the transmitter turned on and killing the battery without that clean shut down and save can and often did corrupt the flash memory

That's basically what Tony said. The key is not to let the battery bottom out.

Now, I understand the problem with this dx7s...

With no battery backup, an incorrect disconnection of the battery cause a big problem on firmware...

Correct. If the system is turned off and does a graceful shut down, there shouldn't be an issue.

Yank out the battery while its on, or let the battery die with the switch on, 50/50 you're going to corrupt that model and when it reboots and tries to read that model it locks up.
