you can obtain undelet software to do this but do not use the machine too much before attempting the procedure, too much use might lead to the areas where data was stored becoming written over. If the data was very important I would contact a data recovery specialist, one with a proven track record.
Good Luck

Probably the button mechnisms are worn. The heavily used buttons often have the plating worn off and become intermitent. Have the button mechanisms replaced. Make sure to use the long life version of the buttons.

Make sure ALL of the interconnected equipment is powered from the SAME receptacle to avoid ground loops due to the safety ground. DO NOT Use two wire power or use ground lifting plug adapters. Make sure you use balanced lines, either XLR or TRS cables. Do NOT use TS cables.

See if you can download the original "demo song" into the unit and see if the demo works. Should be able to find that on the Korg site under support.

To restoring Korg M50 to it's factory settings, first press the [MODE GLOBAL] button to enter Global mode. Then, press the [MENU] button, and choose "Load Preload/ Demo Data". When a dialog box appears, select "All Preload PCG" and then press the [OK] button. Finally, when a dialog box appears on the display, press the [OK] button again to execute the function.
Warning! This operation will cause restore any or all of the Programs, Combinations, Drum Kits, User Arpeggio Patterns, and Global settings to their original factory settings. Do not use this function unless you are certain that you want to do this. Hopefully the article of "Reset Korg M50 88-Key Keyboard Workstation" can help you.

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.
