    Hi All
    I have been looking for some information on this error on my Gaming/Poker machine.
    Its a Konami Brand
    All I can find is that i need to change one of the batteries.
    Can any one identify the batteries or have any more information ?
    Please see attached photos
    Thanks in Advance .

    Power supply, below.
    It seems to me, a large capacitor on the left, you need to check.

    According to a manual I found you have open the logic door and remove the MCTB. The battery/ies are on there.

    Here is a similar situation.

    Sir Sandman11 . . . . .

    ( Mr Sandman . . . bring me a dream.)

    You are showing some hefty power supplies . . . .
    Methinks that, instead, you will need to track down the units BIG logic board,that will just be bristling with DIP I.C.'s and look for a lithium battery that is hard wired onto the board . . . . . or in your case, the info / alert says that it is using two separate batteries.
    I give you a depiction of an approximation of what you are looking for, but hit us with a good close up pictue of your units like board, if being uncertain.


    On this particular board, it has its own built in board power supply.
    See the PINK boxed connector, it connects to the boards power transformer to its right,.
    Then the 6 diode to its left make DC power to supply your Power Electrolytic-Capacitors, cluster of 4.
    Then there is one minor regulated power supply outputting at the black finned heat sinked semiconductor.
    BEHOLD! at the 10 o'clock position from that unit is located THE conventional Looooooong life Lithium battery.
    Not exactly being the well known rechargeable Li ion battery but the old conventional chemical lithium battery.
    It trades chemical lo o o o o o o o ngevity for rechargeability.
    Your unit seems to have aged and had its voltage output drop to the point of only enough voltage being able to hold some critical chips memory retention..
    The unit is centered within the YELLOW rectangle mark up, and soldered in and has + lead polarity marked on its left.
    Its assigned designator of BT1 is even telling you something. . . . . BATTERY

    MY . . .first effort would be to take a voltmeter and check the units present state of voltage output.
    Expecting it to have dropped downwards of 2VDC.
    Next you GET the replacement battery ON HAND, you DON'T pull it and start looking for one .
    Take your new battery and test its voltage then drop a 27---33 or 47 ohm resistor across it for some loading, then retest voltage, bveing loaded to see if it was not being an OLD stock battery .

    I next get 2 common AA or AAA batteries which would put out 3V in series connection, either in a battery holder or I usually just
    use hook up wire to interconnect by soldering with a HEFTY iron. Their two end wires present the resultant 3V.
    This shunting battery gets its properly oriented (polarity wise) and is solder tacked to the very edge of the two pads that the old cell uses
    for its leads.

    I wonder now . . . . . . . Do infants enjoy infancy, as much as some adults enjoy adultery ?
