Isn't there a battery small enough to squeeze into the hole on photo #6 (lifting the battery out) ?

Fox-1 wrote:You can't place a new one without disconnecting the old one and since the battery connections are welded (not soldered) to the IC pins you'll have to cut at least one connection. The one on top will be hard to cut as it's wide and there is no space to fit a wire cutter or something like that. The one on the bottom can't be reached without lifting the battery so if it has to be lifted anyways it's easier to just remove it.

I have too much stuff laying around so everything that has to be fixed I do with the parts I have, one way or another

you have the base metal on it and the foil strip on the rear
if you dont ground all sockets
the falcon will never boot
if you add a test cart its like a mad screen full or badly knitted out of scraps of red and blue and green wool
but rs232 to a pc reports aok... for tests using hyperterminal
you can ground the rs232 port only on the rear and it will work
its due to the rs232 interrupt . and the mfp
documented in other topics by me and others
