SJCAM M50 Trail Camera: Dead Remote

The remote control included with the SJCAM M50 trail camera did absolutely nothing. Not only did it not turn on the camera’s WiFi, the two indicator LEDs between the buttons didn’t blink:

With not much to lose, I removed those four screws and popped the back cover:

Yup, the OEM no-name CR2032 lithium cell was dead flat discharged. A new one perked it right up, with blinky LEDs and all.

Now I can check the camera for interesting pix without hauling it into the house:
