    I guess you could try joining the two buttons as long as you pressed in the middle of the bar and not the side in case you trigger one and not the other.

    Great job putting it all together!

    Hey there fellas, I been reading your thread for awhile and you guys seem to have really become pros on the Akai MG line. I bought an Akai MG1212 a while back. When I fired her up all of the counter was malfunctioning as well as the track selector and pretty much all LED info on the front. I opened her up and the battery had leaked. I replaced it, hoping that was the problem. However, once I got it back together and pressed reset the counter and track functions are still malfunctioning. Seems like all the transport is working. Its just LED functions like symbols and all track selection info is malfunctioning. Any ides?

    Hey and welcome!

    Is the battery PCB mounted somewhere? If so, did the leak spread out on to the board much?
    There's a chance that it's burned through some traces, if that's the case.

    The old Tascam DR-88s used to do that. If the battery leaked and was left for any length of time, all sorts of things got damaged.
    I repaired a few by manually bypassing broken traces with fine wires.
