Can't access internal sound and performance patches

I have a Yamaha DX7 IID, with Grey Matter e! card installed. The previous owner correctly replaced the 3.2 volt battery that maintains internal memory when there is no power supplied. I believe he replaced the battery in the hope of correcting an internal memory problem. I find that that there is no access to the keyboard internal voice and performance patches and that I cannot reload them from the supplied ROM cartridge that came with the keyboard. Can you please help?

Go to http://www.thedx7.co.uk/ Click on 14 Battery Change which is a walkthrough. You will; have to do a sysex data dump to restore the sounds. All that info should be on that site as well as some other great stuff. Hope this helps.

I have a korg n1 and when I turn it on the display screen comes on but no words show up on it I was wondering how to fix it


It sounds like your ROM battery, which the ROM contains and stores the patches for the keyboard, has gone completely dead and your keyboard is dead in the water. However, if you can get a MIDI to USB converter and get the battery changed, then you can reload the patches back onto the keyboard.

I have worked on a Korg M1 Workstation and have had to replace the battery(CR2032) and then had to run a program called "MIDI-OX" which also gave me access to the patches needed in order to restore the keyboard to factory patch settings.

http://www.midiox.com/

Take a look at this AFTER you have gotten the battery replaced. I will tell you that replacing most batteries is a very intricate job as, the bottom of the keyboard has to be removed, as well as a lot of the internal boards. I had to draw a diagram and mark certain pieces so I would know where they went and in what order they have to be re-attached. My advice is take it to someone who works on electronics unless you want to DIY (not recommended) to get the battery replaced.

Hope this helps.

My yamaha mm6 will not turn on does it have a internal battery that may be out or is it the power surge on the keyboard itself thats gone out.


The battery is only to retain patch memory and would have nothing to do with the instrument starting up. Your problem will be in the power supply. I'd suggest taking it to the repair shop.

I Have a yamaha dx7 fd with 2 broken keys, they stay down can be lifted manually and make a sound . can I fix this myself


Open the unit CAREFULLY to avoid damaging cables between top and bottom. Inspect the defective keys. It may either be a broken part on the key OR the silicone rubber key contact carriers that can act as springs. Get repair parts from Yamaha America in California. Find number online and call the "parts department"

I'm not familiar with this kind of keyboard, but it is almost certainly that you have 2 parts (2 instruments) layered together. In this case a bass and a cymbal. This is a feature, not a malfunction of every multitimbral keyboard. Multitimbral means you can play more than one instrument at the same time. This is good as you can create some nice fat sounds, but put the wrong instruments together and you'll have the problem you're experiencing. My suggestion is that you read what the manual says about layering or mixing parts. There you should find instructions on how to turn one of the instruments off. You can also try to google the words "how to parts layer (or sound layer, or combine sounds) on the Yamaha S80". Good luck.

Given its age, this unit needs a little TLC. Units of that vintage used some capacitors that may have dried out a bit and need to be replaced. There are also op-amp ICs internally that may be defective. I would suggest a visit to a service shop that works on keyboards as not all do.

Keep us posted.

ALWAYS to answer your question, refer to the "MIDI IMPLEMENTATION CHART" for your MIDI instrument.

This chart can be found USUALLY near the end of your user's manual.

This chart, among other things, will tell what can be transmitted and received by the MIDI device.

Refering to the chart for your DX21 it shows that the DX21 can both receive and transmit program changes.

If you don't have a user manual, download one here:

I need this circut board for my Yamaha dx7 IIFd the part number is NA109720. It is called aftertouch circuit board


If you have a board that is bad, repair the board as piece parts of older synths are hard to find. The question is what is wrong with the board? If it is the pressure sensitive part and is not cracked it MIGHT be repairable.

Try powering up the synth, then press and hold the EDIT, 16, & 32 keys (so you end up with all three buttons pressed). I think this will reset it.
