If it's a regular 3V 3032, go buy a fresh pack of 2 or 4 and change it out to eliminate the possibility, and save the rest for computers, car key wireless remote fobs, etc.
I've seen at least one case where a PC had one of those batteries that tested good, but had been in service for a few years. Replaced it with a fresh one and cured the problem the motherboard was having.
Recently saw a post around here somewhere about someone fixing a TiVo by pulling the battery for a while and then putting in a new one.
Can I guarantee replacing the battery is needed or will fix things for you? Of course not. But it does eliminate a variable.
But be sure to test the new battery first, to make sure it didn't slip by QC.
