Hi,

 

So my Bell Fruits scorpion 4 DOND big reds machine is showing signs that the Varta 3.6V battery may be starting to leak.  I've purchased a new one and some mini breadboards and will get it off the motherboard and fly lead out the way ASAP.

 

But today I noticed the game card (it has 4 chips on it, 2 game and 2 sound chips by the looks of it), also has a smaller Varta 2.4V 80H battery.  This one looks pretty bad - the varta casing has started to split.

 

Stupid question, but do people do the same with this battery?  I have 10 mini breadboards so if I source a replacement 2.4V battery, I should be able to do similar,

 

If so, what is the correct procedure once i power back on - will the machine alarm or is simply removing the battery a bit of a RAM clear - I guess sound volume setting may be lost etc,?

 

Also - another stupid question, but how do you remove the game cards from the motherboard?  Do they just pull out??

 

Thanks,

Si.

 

edit: added a picture of the new 3.6V battery I have ready with the mini breadboard which was thanks to a member (@Jonno) posting on here about how he wanted a quick switch mechanism.  Thanks!!

Those mini breadboards look good - where did you get them from?

 

I use matrix board myself but may look into this. :)

Amazon actually - about 7.50 odd for 7 - they seem pretty good: https://www.amazon.c...1?ie=UTF8&psc=1

So, how do I remove the gamecard from the motherboard?  And when done, do I just power back on and reset volume - job done?

 

Thanks!

Thanks. Anything to worry about before or after doing the battery removal and re-join/fly lead task?
