I had been looking everywhere for a proper service manual for this VCR. Everywhere else that has this available for download has a very light version. This is the full service manual with all aspects that would interest anyone looking for the service manual for the AIWA HV-MX100 Worldwide VHS VCR. Great quality (as always). A winner hands down. Best Quality.

INSERTING THE BUTTON-TYPE BATTERY
Note: The lithium battery is a critical component (Type No.: CR2025 Manufactured by Panasonic.) It must never be subjected to excessive heat or discharge. It must therefore only be fitted in equipment designed specifically for its use. Replacement batteries must be of the same type and manufacture. They must be fitted in the same manner and location as the original battery, with the correct polarity contacts observed. Do not attempt to re-charge the old battery or re-use it for any other purpose. It should be disposed of in waste products destined for burial rather than incineration.
