My 10 year old viscount maestro is behaving and control

Customer Question
panel screen is flickering....
My 10 year old viscount maestro is behaving and control panel screen is flickering. Some of the functions aren't working. I know it has a lithium battery somewhere in it but I couldln't find it. Does it need to be replaced? How can I get it working? Can I upgrade my piano as it has a floppy disc instead of usb drive, etc. Please help. I can't find anybody locally to help me.

The lithium battery only affects memory, so the problem you are experiencing is more likely due to a fault in the power supply circuitry.

An upgrade is not possible - the internal microprocessor circuitry does not support USB.
