Prophet 5 battery leakage

Post by syntheticsolutions » Wed Feb 19, 2014 10:00 pm

I am currently looking at buying a broken Sequential Circuits Prophet 5.

The owner knows very little about the keyboard other than saying there is clearly battery leakage and corrosion internally.

Does anyone have experience with battery leakage in the P5 and are there any major components around the battery and PS to be damaged to the point of no repair?

Sorry for being so vague, just giving the info I have.

Replicants are like any other machine, they're either a benefit or a hazard. If they're a benefit, its not my problem.
