Hi and welcome to the site, I’m Louie. Sorry you had to wait awhile but I’ll do my best to help.

Initially, a new or even a replacement OP-24e circuit board would be very rare.

Would you consider attempting a DIY (do-it-yourself) repair approach?

Customer: replied 5 months ago.
No-I have it apart and its all solid state-also there are no numbers on the circuit board--larry

Should it be of interest, let's try figure out why "...9v volt battery gets very hot in a short period of time..."; please post back with a clear / closeup pictures of the top and bottom of the circuit board.
