Xp-50 battery replacement - sounds?

Hi,

I have owned a XP-50 since new, and have yet to replace the battery. No battery low warnings yet, but i am starting to fear leakage (it's what - 15 years old?).

Replacing the battery seems to be simple, but what about the factory sounds, do I need to back these up? If so I have to get some floppy disks, which should be interesting....

Thanks in advance!

Apparently this procedure will bring back factory presets if they disappear.

ROLAND XP-50

PRESS DISK UTIL, SELECT SOUND, THEN PROTECT, SET
MEM PROTECT OFF. EXIT, SELECT PRESET AND PRES
S ENTER. (REMEMBER TO SET MEM PROTECT BACK
ON ).

The battery is likely to be a CR2032 type, and they generally don't corrode like the old ones you see in Polysix's heh

Forgot about this until now when I'm about to actually change the battery. Just wanted to say thanks for the info!

Chances are not high that a lithium battery will leak, one of the great things about them.

You won't have to worry about getting back factory presets, for sure.
