  1. #1 How to change the internal battery RED EPIC X 
    I'm sorry but I'm going to write the procedure in Spanish because it's easier for me.

    If someone wants to translate perfect !!

    Hace un par de semanas empece a sufrir el problema del reset en la fecha y hora del reloj de mi Red MX.
    Empece a preguntar al support sobre tiempo y coste de la reparación, al final tenia que enviar a UK para un simple cambio de batería interna?? en serio???!!

    Yo soy de una pequeña isla en el mediterráneo, por lo que es muy complicado para mi enviar la red al servicio técnico, de hay que empece a investigar como solucionar un problema aparentemente tan estupido y finalmente me decidí a abrir la cámara y buscar la pila.

    !!LO CONSEGUI!!

    1. Hay que sacar la parte de la ssdMAG. son 6 tornillos.
    2. Sacar la placa metálica que cubre la electrónica. son 16 tornillos.
    3. Ya con la electrónica vista, en la parte superior veréis un texto que pone RTC_BAT, pues allí debajo esta la pila!!
    -Desconectamos los conectores de las 2 cintas amarillas.
    -Desconectamos los dos conectores de color rojo.
    -Sacamos los 3 tornillos que sujetan la placa electrónica.
    -Tiramos de la placa con cuidado, veréis el conector del ventilador frontal, hay que desconectar también (Recordar volver a conectarlo después!!!)
    -Hay un conector debajo de la placa donde se ve una cinta amarilla con un código QR, hay que sacarlo cuando empezamos a sacar la placa (OJO: Volver a conectarlo después !!!)
    4. Sacar la placa con mucho cuidado.
    5. comprar antes una pila CR2025 3V
    6. Sacamos la pila vieja con cuidado.
    7. Insertamos la pila nueva.

    8. Volvemos a montar todo siguiendo los pasos pero al revés, y con mucho cuidado de volver a conectar el conector inferior negro y el conector del ventilador frontal.

    Hacerlo todo con mucho cuidado, a mi me ha funcionado porque no me da miedo tocar la electrónica (Soy técnico básico de electrónica).Pero si no tienes costumbre de desmontar aparatos te recomiendo que no lo intentes con la Red!!!

    Espero que os sea de utilidad la información y que la uséis si sabéis, si no NO LO HAGAIS.

    Would anybody know if there is any advantage in replacing this battery by a rechargeable one,
    would the camera charge it ?
    Thank you

    Rechargeable? ... you ask it seriously or kidding??...
    Better you do not try to change the battery without help ... jjjjjjj
    If it carries a normal battery is because the system is not designed to carry a rechargeable, better not to make inventions with expensive equipment ... do not you think?
    You better change every 2 years and without problems...

    Bravo Toni! Now we just need someone to translate... Actually, if I decide to do this I may actually shoot it...

    In reality it is very simple if you have experience dismantling electronic devices.
    I have not translated it because there are words that I do not know how they say in English and in the end it's easier with images step by step.
    You just have to be careful with the 6 connectors that you have to take out and put back very carefully, besides taking care that no screws fall inside the rest of the electronic circuits ...

    But I repeat, if you do not feel comfortable doing it, do not do it !!
