Hi Daniel,

Thanks for posting. 

Yes, the SR18 does have a backup battery. If your unit is not retaining patterns after power cycling, you probably need to replace the battery. Parts inquiries are not handled here on the forums, but I can help to point you in the right direction. If you're located in the US, you can contact our Parts Department by calling 401-658-3131 Ext. 1403, or by emailing parts@inmusicbrands.com

I hope this helps!

Hi Bill,

Thank you very much for your answer.
I just need to know where is the battery located. I live far away from the US, so I'll try to fix it by my self.
I opened the SR18 some time ago, but I couldn't locate the battery. Can you help me with some directions?
Thanks in advance!
Rgds,
Daniel.

I apologize for the inconvenience, Daniel; however, the SR18's backup battery is not user-accessible. This would need to be serviced by one of our authorized service centers. To find out where to service your product, please get in touch with our Technical Support team by logging on to www.alesis.com/support
