Question about Yamaha Dtxpress Iv Special Electronic Drum Set
You can replace the battery yourself in about 20 minutes. It is not soldered. You will need a replacement battery, which is a CR2032 watch battery, a small Philips screwdriver, and needle or thin-nosed pliers.
1. Remove all cables from the dtxplorer unit, and remove it from the drum kit rack.
2. Remove all 6 screws from the bottom side (i.e. opposite the face)
3. Remove the 3 lowest screws from the rear (jack-filled) side, including the one which holds in the little plastic power cord hook, then lift off the bottom and set aside.
4. You will see the bottom circuit board, covering the top board. Carefully pull off the spade connectors from the power switch, using pliers or patient wiggling, they are on fairly tight but will come loose. Note which one is which for proper reattachment.
5. Near the center of the board is a little white plastic post end sticking up, through a hole, from the inside (top) board, with small tabs. This loosely attaches the two boards. Using small pliers, squeeze the tabs on the post end, and pull up on the board and it will separate from the inside (top) board. Carefully move the board toward the front of the unit to free the jacks from the holes in the case, and then you can easily fold the board toward the front, like opening a book. (Don't try and remove the large wire sets attaching the two boards)
6. You will see the button-like battery. Just push it toward the spring clips at one side and lift it out. Replace it with the new battery, + side out.
7. Just reverse the steps to reassemble, hook it up and you're ready to go. Easier to do than this makes it seem. Greg

Addition To Solution #3: I had a very hard time removing the spade clips from the On/Off switch. I only got the top one off and decided to cut the tie wrap that holds the wire to the circuit board. After squeezing the white tabs on the connector post that holds the circuit boards together, I was then able to pull the the circuit boards apart far enough to expose the On/Off connection to the circuit board. Just follow the wires. This small white plastic connector came off very easily. The hardest part of the job was removing and replacing the screws!

This product MAY contain a small non-rechargeable battery which (if applicable) is
soldered in place. The average life span of this type of battery is approximately five
years. When replacement becomes necessary, contact a qualified service representative
to perform the replacement.
