In the event of a motherboard battery failure the ‘system board battery’ message is lit up on the front of the console.
CMOS (complementary metal-oxide-semiconductor) is the term usually used to describe the small amount of memory on a computer motherboard that stores the BIOS settings. Some of these BIOS settings include the system time and date as well as hardware settings.
If the message persists the battery may need to be replaced.

If the problem persists after replacing the CMOS battery then the appliance may need to be RMA’d. Please refer to the following KB article for the RMA process:
