I hope someone gets you the correct battery description.  If not, you
may have one which requires either 3v or 6v.  Usually batteries are
not absolutely necessary, so if you power it up, and set the options
up, does it stay set, or loose the settings on a reboot?

You might search for a clock chip and see if you could get the
voltage that is required to hold it up, as another approach.

It can take as few as 53 years to have that happen, from personal
experience.
