An A1200 does not as standard have a real-time clock, so it's normal that the date has dropped back to 1978. The one with the Blizzard should have a clock, so its battery is probably long since gone.

the caps on my main A1200 seem dry and ok.
However, the battery on the 030 is indeed long dead - its not leaking as far as I can see but needs changing.
NOOB alert - how do I change it lol!! And do I need an exact replacement.
It seems to have a plastic surround and i cant seem to slide it out as there is a processor in the way (FPU???)
thanks for your time and help!!!
