Similar situation to Korg Polysix. Ni-Cad battery can leak, causing damage to board and surrounding components. Remove and replace ASAP.

I hereby declare: when the battery needs changing on an A6.... It can be counted as vintage :D

Actually, it turned out not to be the battery, but a diode installed the wrong way in my A6. :) But I changed the battery first, and documented the process, since it will be vintage some day. :D

1) Model of Synth: Oberheim Matrix 1000

 

2) Battery Type: 3v CR2032

 

3) Any relevant fitting information: Standard 'slip in/slip out' CR2032 Battery holder.

 

(although some images show soldered in variety and so would involve 'legged' CR2032 battery and soldering)

BTW, if anyone wants CR2032 battery holders, I have an almost unlimited supply (I work in computers so see alot of dead motherboards etc) and can easily de-solder them out.

 

Feel free to PM me, and i will send you one/some (providing you are fairly local) :)
