just got back from another J2 test round:

- battery voltage still holding steady
- all the rom / rom / cmos tests are passed successfully

however: the sound test cycles through 15 different sounds, but only sounds 1 - 4 can be heard, sounds 5 - 15 stay silent Sad

i don't know if J2 uses an individual chip for both sound and speech, but there seems to be a problem somewhere somehow!

Ully, as far as I remember, I had a piece of paper under the battery until I delivered it to your place. Did you by any chance put it back in the anti-static bag I brought it in ? This could have shorted the battery terminals and thus drawn the battery.

you remember correctly, the paper piece was still there. i simply pulled it out when the resto was finished and never did anything else. what exactly should / could / might i have put back in the anti-static bag? the whole pcb?

Yeah..if the PCB would have been back in the bag without the little paper isolating the battery it could drain because of the conductive inside of the bag.

Ully was here tonight and I replaced D2 with a Schottky diode so it "eats up" much less energy (voltage drop was now 0,01V instead of about 0,4V with the old diode. This should improve the battery draining dramatically.

I had to improvise the soldering (cut the body of the old diode and soldered the new one to the old legs) because I didn't think I could get the old solderings removed properly on the solder side of the board.

There's no leaks or bad tracks up to the RAM that the battery supports.
