Did the battery fluid leak intot the internal components?

If not you can replace this with ease. I will help you, also I can locate a good source for a new battery. But you will likely need to do some cleaning to get the corrosive acid off the connections. I will tell you what to use and how to do that as well;-)

The battery leaked onto the CB and now the piano will not boot up. I cleaned the area around the battery

Hi that circuit board will need to be replaced, I can locate a good source for this afternoon to replace that. Are you experienced in electronic rework and soldering?

If not, then I can help you locate a good service tech to replace that for you. That board is super sensitive to moisture and battery acid will render it useless and in need of replacement.

Please let me know on that and I will reply with the best answer possible for you. If you do have experience I will assist you all the way there wit the replacement proceedure as well;-)

In any case, I will stick with you until this is complete.

I can solder, but this is surface solder so a board may be the best bet. I don't mind sending it out.
