Does the Quadraverb have a battery?

My Quadraverb is acting flaky again, and I was wondering if there is a battery that eventually needs replacing. I can't find any info on this anywhere. The power supply is fine (its fairly new), so I've kind of ruled that out. Just trying to find some direction to look before I crack this thing open.

And yes, I know this thing is ancient, but I like it. I could probably buy another one for $50, but I have many custom patches on it that I don't want to try and duplicate.

Any info would be appreciated. Thanks.

Re: Does the Quadraverb have a battery?

I have a Quadraverb GT and love it. According to the manuel online it does appear to have an internal battery to which if it dies then all memory is lost. Take a look at the online manuel and, following the page numbers on the upper right hand conner, go to page 111 and the word "battery" should be highlighted blue:

If you prefer the Quadraverb GT PDF manuel version:

I'm no expert on this...I just push buttons and hope everything works. I hope this is helpful for you. Good luck.

Forgot to mention, there may be more information in the manuel to fix the problem...I was too tired to look!

Re: Does the Quadraverb have a battery?

I should have mentioned that I have a Quadraverb Plus. I don't believe it has any capablity for uploading/dowloading patches, but I could be mistaken. I opened up the box just to look, and there indeed is a lithium ion battery hard wired to the board. Don't know if the GT is any different. I poked around a bit and made sure all the ribbon and press fit connectors where seated properly and seemed to have success with it remaining consistently powered. My custom patches are all still there also. I'll see if it holds out, otherwise the scope of the problem is beyond my capabilties. Thanks for the reply.
