I suspect the 2039 will have a super capacitor rather than a back up battery as the 2040 manual indicates a memory retention of only a few days( only 3 hrs on the 2037) if power is disconnected . This capacitor will be recharged on reconnection of power but will have to be replaced if it has become "leaky"

No battery & it looks to be a not unknown problem.
There is a manual available. But it does not mention a battery, however old64goat clearly mentions at about 10 minutes 30 seconds that the radio does NOT have a battery. A link to the owners manual is below the video.

Link for the manual. Click on owners guide link at bottom of page.
