I'm pretty certain that we lost our scenes.
That is what would happen when you powered off the board or if you lost power. That's all the battery does other than keep the real-time clock working.

Like I said my memory is a little fuzzy!

I am going to change the battery in my DM 1000, so I'll see if that removes all my scenes.

Should I change the battery while powered up?

Thanks,        Don

Personally, I wouldn't do it that way, I'd just do a backup and then restore it after I changed the battery. Fiddling around inside with the power on is just dangerous. However, if you simply must, then:

Back up the DM1000 to your computer or an SM card.
Power off and open up the DM1000
Find the battery
Power on the DM1000 and replace the battery after it boots up, being extremely careful not to short anything out.
After the new battery is in, power off the DM1000 and reassemble.

Sorry, I wasn't clear on my question.

Normally I would change the battery exactly as you described.
This would be an experiment to see if removing the battery ( or battery dying ) while console is powered up would remove scenes.

I'm retiring the DM 1000 to my rehearsal space so no need to save any scenes.

You can do that experiment if you like, but I'm quite sure it won't lose any scenes until you power it off without the battery installed.

Thanks Andrew, I'm going to do it do it anyway because I just have to know.

I'll report back in a couple of days.

If you short the contacts while pulling out the battery, you might cause a reboot, clear the memory or otherwise mess things up.
I would do it this way so you don't short anything out:
Power it off, unplug it.
Open it up and take out the battery.
Put it back together and power it on.
You'll likely get a battery error. Click Ok or otherwise clear the error.
Create a scene and store it.
If you can create and store scenes and otherwise use the console without the batttery, then having no battery or a dead battery will not cause you to lose scenes.
