Recapped Portable still not working

Hi everyone. I have just joined up to this great forum to get some advice on fixing my Portable (non backlit). I also have a troublesome SE/30 but I'll do another post about that later.

So my portable was dead so I have re-capped the logic board to try to get it going again. Now it will chime as if its about to boot, but then a second later I get the death chime and sad mac appear. I have tried it with no hard drive, floppy drive, memory card and even the display unplugged and it's sill the same, so has to be the logic board.

The error code I get is:



Another question I have is regarding the 9V backup battery. Should there be a resistor to drop the voltage down to 6V? Someone has previously replaced the battery connector so not sure if its correct or not now. I didn't put a battery on it just in case, but its probably had 9V on it in the past.
