If it is your User Bank that is lost, it is probably the RAM backup
battery.All synths etc. need somme amount of power running to retain memory in RAM.This is done by a Lithium cell inside on a cicuit board.
You can change it yourself,but that will void any warranty you might have.Be very careful not to disturb any other components,especially with solder iron.Batteries can be found at any decent electronics parts house for under $10.00.Just open the unit up and check the type, number&voltage of the one in there.Then you can probably get the Bank downloaded from Alesis,or some other nice person,if you don't already have the data backed up.Battery life is usually about
7-10 years on newer devices.Less on older analog types,so think about your other gear as well.Hope this helps!
