You will need to open up the keyboard. Make sure it is unplugged. Once you take out all the screws that hold the top half with the bottom, separate the two carefully. You will have some wires and ribbons attached to both sides. The battery is on the circuit board, it looks like a quarter. Make sure you replace the same size battery.

It is inside the unit. You will need to open it up. The battery is flat like a quarter. Sometimes it is inserted under a cover. Look carefully, you will find it.

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.

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.

Korg i3 keyboard no sound out

Step 1:
Check the setting of LOCAL CONTROL in GLOBAL mode.
Go to GLOBAL mode page 1 (Figure 1-2):korg-i3-keyboard-no-sound-out-fuxmm42irvf2p03kxwfdv02c-5-0.jpg

korg-i3-keyboard-no-sound-out-fuxmm42irvf2p03kxwfdv02c-5-1.jpg Move the cursor from the MASTER TUNE to LOCAL CONTROL. Setting LocalControl should be in the ON position.
When the setting is OFF,set it to ON (use dial TEMPO / VALUE or DOWN / UP button).
Go back to ARR or PROG mode,and play the key to check audio.

Step 2:
If in step 1, the sound still does not exist, then it is a hardware problems, and the possibilities are :
Figure 3, the section in red shading is a block may be damaged.korg-i3-keyboard-no-sound-out-fuxmm42irvf2p03kxwfdv02c-5-3.jpg

Figure 4 is a scheme. korg-i3-keyboard-no-sound-out-fuxmm42irvf2p03kxwfdv02c-5-6.jpgParts that might be damaged in case of no-audio are:
IC 2,4,5 (4570), IC9 (78L05), IC6 (PCM69AU), IC 3 (5216).
Check also the transistors Q1-Q7 (This is the MUTE transistor, and this is most often the cause in case of no-audio).
If you can not fix it by yourself, then leave it to the experts.

I dont know how to replace the internal battery on a Korg M1

You should be able to remove the top cover off your keyboard and see the quarter-size battery mounted in a holder on one of the circuit boards.
I don't recall the exact location on this particular model, but once you've located it, all you have to do is slide it out from under the contact spring that holds it in place and slide a new one in.
You'll want to make the swap fairly quickly as some models can lose their memory settings if battery power is lost for a relatively short amount of time.
