Juno 60 replacement battery info

Post by Scottf » Mon Mar 03, 2014 10:19 am

My 60 wont save patches once powered off..need to get a new battery. Is it strictly cr1 3n??
saw a seller on ebay advertise a 3.6 volt, is that an issue

original was 3 volt, they appear to be lithium batterys is there any specfic type of lithium to not get?(i dont have a clue)
but do these or certain type leak, excuse the ignorance please!!

additionally, the tech whos doing this for me suggested getting a holder with the tags for down the line

found this in uk online 3 holder types, different mounting options????
two different specs for working tempertures??

any insight to the following link>

The battery that Juno 60 uses is 3.6 Volt and it is soldered to the pcb.
I used many times 3v CR2032 with them and they worked for years without problems.
Unfortunately I dont have any of the junos anymore so I cant tell how much the CR2032s last.
I use to salvage battery holders from computer motherboards, i have many dead ones lying around.
It is all about sharing...

think I have the battery sorted..

re: the link & holders -that link has specfic holders for the cr1/3n stated in the 60 service manual as battery part.
My question as Im in the lurch for the min is is it obvious(except to me) whether the holder should be surface mounted or "through hole"..........theres only three in that^above link-prob go with one of them;

going to email the tech quy the link but I might have to wait, want to plough ahead though. Need to get going on the 60!

thanks!

My Juno 60 started acting up(losing tune) so I figured it was time to replace the battery. I'm not sure if the problem was battery-related but I thought it was about time to change the 30 year old battery and fine tune synth after ten years.

According to the service manual the original battery is in fact 3V(not 3.6V) CR-1/3N lithium battery and that's exactly what I found inside my synth.

So, I soldered a 3V CR2032 battery holder onto a small piece of breadboard and attached it to the wooden casing with a screw holding a punch of cords. My soldering skills are rusty and adequate at best but I managed to cut out the old battery neatly and solder the new cords straight onto the old studs. No de-soldering, clue or extra screws/holes needed.

Seems to work perfectly, thanks for the tips.

Anyhow, just wanted to let you know my solution.
This is how it looks like:

There is a much easier solution, here is a battery holder for the CR-1/3N which means you can fit & buy the standard ones you don't need to solder. you can get these batteries from Maplins or any super market.

or you can get the solder type from here.
