This seller on eBay (, sells Varta 3.6v Ni-Mh batteries to replace the onboard battery which is prone to leak, before you think about purchasing a machine if possible try to see the inside of the unit as the battery tends to leak and the battery acid eats into the circuit board, tracks, resistors, etc.

Once you change the battery you will need to do a Factory Reset, as the unit will be saying Cold Start everytime it is turned on.

To do a Factory Reset you must PRESS - SHIFT and YES, when it says COLDSTART. It will reset the whole unit and all the sounds, etc., and the Cold Start will then go away and you can setup all your sounds and pads again.
