    Got a GR-09 and a JV-30. Any info? didn't have any luck on google or
    Roland couldn't even give me a local authorized service center in the
    Kansas City area. Just tell me to send it to LA. ARRG. Don't know why
    it is not an easy user thing anyway. Should just be a door in the back
    and a switch or something, and a 9volt transister batt.,
    TIA, mes.

    Usually fairly easy to do, it's just a challenge getting inside the case
    to access them.
    With the keyboard, lay it upside down, and remove the bottom cover.
    If you're lucky, you find the main circuit board, and the battery will
    be on it.
    The GR-09 might be trickier, if you can find an obvious way in, great.

    Your 9V battery wouldn't last the test of time, these lithium batteries
    should last a minimum of 5 years, I've had them last far longer.

    If you have any user created patches in memory I would strongly suggest
    finding a way to back up the memory as soon as possible.
    I assume you are getting a low battery warming hence your enquiry?

    Not getting a low batt warning, but I have had the keyboard like 15
    years and have had the gr-09 for over 10. Never Replaced the batteries.
    I got an email from where I bought my extra used gr09 and
    they said you have to take the board out and turn it over, the batt. is
    soldered in. Good thing I worked at an electronics manufacturer for a
    while. soldering components 10 hours a day. As far as 9v's go, I
    though you could get them in Litium ? Of course any type of long
    lasting battery would be fine, as long as it was easy. They should just
    have a door, a power bypass switch (so you don't loose your patches) and
    presto change-oo your done. Easy as a flashlight. But I suppose that
    would be too logical. mes.
