Hi, thank you for contacting JustAnswer.com. My name is Russell. I will do my best to provide the right answer to your question.
That battery should be replaced while the organ is powered On, if you have anything stored in the memory card that you would wish not to be lost while the old battery is out and before the new battery is in. Leave the memory card in the organ while you replace the battery in it, to preserve what is stored on the memory card from being lost.
The battery is a 3 V lithium battery that is reported to be Radio Shack # *****
Open the battery compartment on the front edge of the card (observe precautions above, etc.), remove the old battery, place the new one in the compartment with the same orientation or polarity (so be sure to observe the old battery's polarity and orientation as you remove it). And close the battery compartment.
If this answers your question in full, and completes the case, please rate my answer. Thanks.
The plug-in User Memory Card, contains the battery.
The battery should be accessible while the card is plugged in, by opening the battery holder that is on one edge of it.
I admit that I don't know where it is precisely, I'm sorry to say.
This is, at least, what it looks like:
but I cannot find any picture of its slot.
I understand. The problem is a matter of some difficulty, rather than you yourself.
OK: I also need to know: Was I sidetracked by the mention of a battery for the Personal Memory Card ? you say you believe a battery needs changing. What made you think so? it might matter to getting the best answer to your question.
Then probably the slot with the card in it needs to be found.
Do you recognize the Rogers Personal Memory card I got a picture of ?
It will be in a slot somewhere in the organ, with a dead battery in it. Pull a card like that out of a slot in the Rogers organ, when the organ is Off, and you can replace the battery in it once you have identified it - the battery's dead anyway, and you have lost the data on the card already anyway.
Here's the word on where to look:
The Personal Memory Card slot is located
just below the lower manual, near the General Cancel piston.
And it is a credit-card-sized memory card. Not larger, not much smaller.
Does that help?
Yes. It is a user-usable user-friendly memory card. Made to be convenient, not inconvenient.
Can you find the slot it ought to be in, now?
OK. Let me know, please. Thanks!
I suspect that your model doesn't have such a slot if you look in the right place and cannot find one.
Did you find the General Cancel piston, at least?
Then the slot for the memory card, if it exists on your model, should be there, 'near the General Cancel piston', is the word on it.
If it doesn't exist, you organ has a battery somewhere else that needs changing, and is not user-serviceable in all likelihood, in which case calling in a Rodgers organ servicing pro from your area would be advisable. If you wish to pursue that option, please let me know your local zip code, and I will look up listings for nearby specialists that you could call upon.
Can you photograph (e.g. with flash) the cancel button's region?
And post me the photograph. I can judge from that as to what the situation is, with regard to a memory card battery at least, for certain.
OK, thanks, that'll be fine.
Monday (or Tuesday, too) will be fine. Get a photo and post it to me at your convenience. Thanks.
Thank you, ***** ***** received the photo...
... and the third one reveals two things that the edited version I have attached, with two red arrows, and with one blue arrow added to point out what I noticed:
- the red arrows point to what looks sort of like a memory card slot. Is it a slot? or a solid plate?
- the blue arrow points to near the General Cancel button, where there is a 'Rodgers' plate... perhaps the normal position of the memory card slot was there, and in your organ, it is different or was modified?
Then I am sorry to say that it appears I have failed at advising you on this case.
What's left that I could offer? I can't think of anything. So with apologies, I must just Opt Out and open the case to other Experts in this category.
(The last thoughts I would have on this problem are: Would you prefer local help with this problem? from a Rodgers specialist in your region, preferably. And would a service manual seem worth checking out or paying a little for? if I haven't already done a search for the service manual for this model of Rodgers organ...)
