  • Rodgers Concord 760

    Having issues with the Rodgers Concord 760 capture combination action ... It will permit me to set my combinations and will hold them until the instrument is turned off ... Does anyone know if this model Rodgers has a battery backup and where this might be located? As always, thanks for your help!

    The Rodgers I used to own had a back up battery about the size of a pop can. When it no longer held a charge, the combons would forget their settings when the organ was turned off. Take the back off the organ and see if there's a container that has two wires clipped to it's terminals. It may even be labeled "battery"[;)]. Probably it's located at the side of the cabinet, but it might be in the upper area near the lid. If you have a voltmeter you could check voltage on it. There shouldn't be more than around 12 volts DC. If it's dead, there won't be much, if any voltage. A replacement might be a dealer item unless you can find the same battery through another source. Be sure to match the amp/volt rating and mark the plus and minus wires before taking them off the old battery.

      The 760 uses standard rechargeable NiCad batteries in a small pack located on the multifunction board under the metal cover in the upper left corner of the outside rack. According to the tech manual, the pack outputs 4.5-5V, enough to keep the CMOS RAM alive where all the organ settings are retained.</p>

      You should be able to obtain a size and voltage equivalent from BatteriesPlus or a similar place.</p>

      Hopefully the current batteries haven't started puking out their corrosive guts. If there is any residue, make sure you clean it off first using a non-residual PC board cleaner.</p>
