    Okay boys and girls, here is the deal.

    Collar clinic's web site says they do not work on Tri-tronics G2 and G3's
    I called them to try and ask trouble shooting questions and left a message with no return call?
    I took the collars to Batteries Plus and they did not have the batteries in stock and could not locate the batteries that fit my collars.
    If they could locate them they would be $30 plus tax each.
    I just shipped the collars and transmitters to the folks at Magnum Telemetry. They charge $35 dollars per collar or transmitter to change the batteries, but do not perform any other service. I am guessing from talking to them that the problem is the batteries? We will see what they say when they get and test them?
    I'll keep ya'll posted as things progress.

    Posting just in case anyone has an ancient Tri-tronics model. Collar Clinic can repair older Tri-tronics transmitters. I am reading my invoice from them dated 11-11-19: "Repair TT G3 Transmitter PRO 500 EXP."

    They repaired it for $69 and it works great. So, if you have an ancient TT Pro collar like mine, Collar Clinic can repair the transmitter. My collar is about 10 years old.

    Changing out your own battery is really not that hard. Find the battery online and replace it yourself.

    Where do you find a receiver (collar) battery for a G2 or G3 on line? I don't think they exist except maybe on eBay occasionly when someone is selling a used one. You can buy the batteries for the transmitter, but batteries for the receivers have all but dried up.

    Does/can magnum telemetry rebuild the batteries for the g2/g3 receivers (collars)? I gave batteries +bulbs one of my dead batteries and they disassembled it and said they couldn’t rebuild them.

    Hi, I own a Tri-tronics G3 Pro 500 EXP 3 dog transmitter and collar. I purchased a collar battery replacement 5 years ago on Amazon and they still stock it on Amazon. The best way to find replacement batteries for transmitters or collars is to use the battery model number and then search as Tri-tronics collar battery number XXXX-xxxx. Use the model number of the battery which is printed on the battery itself or should be in your Tri-tronics paperwork/manual if you kept that.

    There are lots and lots of replacement batteries for collars and transmitters on Amazon. They aren't manufactured by Tri-tronics but they work well. I have replaced both collar batteries and transmitter batteries with batteries purchased on Amazon.

    I think they rebuild the G2 transmitter battery, the sealed one with the bayonet mount but not the similarly constructed receiver batteries. I have a still functional G2 transmitter with 3 functional receivers but chose to purchase a Pro 550 with 2 receivers recognizing the life expectancy of the TT collars.
