JV1080 - "Internal battery low"

Postby ConcertinaChap » Fri Sep 07, 2018 8:28 pm

Hi all,

I've just started getting this message when I switch on my JV1080. I've googled around and I've found a number of people selling replacement batteries for quite a lot with the side that would identify the type carefully turned away from the camera. I've found that the JV2080 takes a bog-standard CR2032 (of which I have several) so it seems likely that the JV1080 would do too. Can anyone confirm that the JV1080 takes the same? Also, how do you actually change the battery? I'm finding it difficult to find anything out there.

TIA

This picture is quite reassuring, but how do you get inside the beast in the first place?

From a quick Google it looks quite civilized, CC.
Should be able to undo the obvious screws on the outer casing and the battery holder is on the top circuit board, drop a new 2032 in and you're good to go. May want to back up any patches you've got first though ;)
I did find a brief "how to" but am reticent to link to another forum, so will PM you in case it's useful :)

I would like to add that with a lot of this sort of kit, if you are very careful and only use plastic tools you can usually change the battery while the unit is powered up with no loss of data.

It's not normally possible with a 'pooter as they go to great pains to put the battery in such a place that you have completely dismantle the kit to get to it :(

Since its job is to maintain those patches when the power is off I thought that might be the case :)

Got it, thanks, wonder how I missed that. I shouldn't have thought that would be a concern to the mods (unlike, maybe, links to the Other Place) but better safe than sorry.

Thanks again.

Sir, you offend me deeply - I would never stoop so low as to consider PM'ing a link to the Other Place*, let alone posting it in a forum.

*OK, I possibly would if it was genuinely helpful, however improbable that may seem.

Edit: Also, yes, the suggestion about backing up should possibly win an award for patronising tip of the day. Sorry about that :blush:

It looks like you're lucky in that you can drop an ordinary cell battery into a holder. Most roland/boss gear I've rummaged inside uses cells with attached legs that have to be unsoldered/soldered into the pc. I've just had to do that to an old drum machine and it was less than easy!

If you encounter any difficulties, do let us know. I've yet to have to change the battery on my JV-880 or 1080 but it's only a matter of time!
