Not exactly a repair, but the 8594E needed the internal battery checking. This is a backup battery for RAM data. The one-piece cover is straightforward to remove, details in the Service Guide. There was quite a bit of dust inside which needed cleaning.

The A16 A1 PCB lifts off the A16 PCB. There are 4 white plastic clip pillars holding them together. Take care separating them!

A16 A1 Assembly
There are 2 black plastic clips holding the white insulating cover.
Do not put the pcb on a conductive surface as this can delete data!
The B1 battery is a 3V CR2477 Panasonic which is soldered on.
Next to it is C1 a 220nF 5.5V super-capacitor. This holds enough charge to provide power for up to 8 hours while the battery is replaced.

I will order a spare battery as it will need replacing a some point.

All re-assembled and the CAL routine run ok.

There is no information on the A8 Power Supply in the CLIP.

This is almost certainly a bought-in PSU, parts and circuit diagrams may not be available.
