  • Changing battery in TD-8 - help!

    My band has a little downtime, so I wanted to change the battery, even though I never got a warning from the LED screen. It's several years old and never been changed.

    I've read threads about TD20's and TD10's with low batteries. Is it the same for a TD-8? A CR2032 watch battery?

    There is no USB port on the back, so I guess I can't download my settings?

    Do I leave it plugged in while changing battery??

    Can I do it myself??

    Thanks for the help you guys. The store where I bought the kit and do my business was no help. the Roland website didn't help either.

    Yes, it is the same CR2032 watch battery as other modules. But they seem to last much longer on a TD-8 and I don't think many people have changed them on that module.

    If you have a MIDI to PC cable, you could bulk dump settings to MIDI-OX. If not, then leaving it plugged in would be the only way to avoid restarting from factory settings. I think it should be easy to do yourself.
