A year or two ago I bought a DSR922 off Fleabay. I've never played with one before. I plugged it in and it had some 8s on the display then it said "WM UP" now it says "GO 19".
I do not have it hooked to a display or tv. Is there a way that I can tell how the battery is doing off of the front display?

Ok got it hooked up
The "Receiver Number" on the display screen matches the "UA" number on the back of the unit.
Any other numbers to check?

Matching numbers - you should be good, but would look into changing that battery ASAP.

Where is a good place to buy that battery?

On the screen it says "Authorization Status.... ZK"
Is that good or bad?

At about the same time I bough another unit to go with it that is supposed to give that unit the ability to have HiDef. It's in the back room and it's not jumping off the shelf at me right now. Is there a battery or anything in that which can go bad?

Thanks

Found it.
It is a "General Instrument model HDD201"
It says "Star Choice" on the front

If you are connected to a BUD, drive to Galaxy 15 @ 133 west. Called G1 in the 4DTV.
Put the 4DTV on channel 3, and look at the front display for a Green Light with "DC" below it.

I haven't got it hooked up right now. I just started reading about battery replacement and thought I better get it out and see if it is still alive. I just ordered a new battery from Digi Key.

Thanks for the tips though
