JUNO-60
Dead Battery

The Roland JUNO-60 came out in 1982, less than one year after its predecessor, the JUNO-6, was introduced.

Both were 6-voice polysynths but the JUNO-60 included fifty-six programmable patch memories!

A CR-1/3N lithium battery with solder tabs holds the patch data in RAM when the synth is turned off.

Size 1/3N batteries are still used in cameras and other small electronics, but without solder tabs.

Replacement Battery

So we installed a high-quality CR-1/3N BATTERY HOLDER.

It's a surface mount device that solders directly to the circuit board, with no additional wires, making battery changes secure but simple.

After the battery change, we loaded 56 Factory Patches into the synth.  We also removed the keyboard assembly to clean some intermittent key contacts.  For all the details, View the Repair
