Hi, my name is ***** ***** it would be my pleasure to help with your issue today.
The internal memory battery in the XF105 is not replaceable. It isn't like the older cameras that had a watch style battery that could be replaced once it was drained. The memory battery is either soldered onto the main board of the cmaera, or it's actually not a battery at all and the memory information is stored on a chip on the main board. There's no way to change this battery with this model camera without a complete break down and soldering on either a new battery or a new chip.
Canon has tried several different methods of storing memory and settings. Some like the GL2 have an option to store the info on a memory card, and some of the much older pro models have a removable coin battery. Unfortunately, now what we have is a proprietary memory battery. If it's not holding a charge, then there's really no other option than to send it in to the nearest Canon service center and have it replaced.
Hope this helps. Let me know if there's anything else that I can do to assist you. Please don't forget to click accept and leave a positive rating for me. Thanks and have a wonderful day!!
