I deal mostly with music (mostly noisy music to be exact), musical equipment and electronics as it relates to musical equipment.
I found some very helpful instructions through Dave Benson’s DX7 Page (also archived here) for replacing the battery.
I was ready to give up and assume it was a deeper motherboard issue until I read this again and decided I would take a look at the underside of my DX7′s motherboard and compare it to yours. I remember that that area around the battery definitely showed signs that people in the past had been poking around there. Another possibility is to remove the battery and replace it with a PCB CR2032 holder from Maplins or maybe Farnell and then you can use an ordinary CR2032.
In desperation you could try any tagged CR2032 (Google CR2032 solder) and connect with flying leads, insulate and shove in a space in the synth.
Like with Mike above, I am getting the same problem when powered up the LED numerals scramble and the lcd is solid boxes on the top half. Just been reading the other comments to see whether I have a dead battery problem with my DX7 11D.
I’ve been using my DX7 normally until now and sudenly, when I turn it on my LCD screen comes on with the typical “Yamaha DX7 Synthesizer” as it should, but nothing else happens.
I have a DX7, and just like SinMASS, the screen comes on with “Yamaha DX7 Synthesizer” as it should, but nothing else happens. After some trobleshooting (opening up the DX7, removing and inspecting all the circuit boards looking for cracks, checking for +5, +15, -15 voltages at the ICs), turning off the power and removing the CR2032 memory battery and waiting to reset everything back to its default state with no results, I then thought to check for clock frequencies using an oscilloscope.
Es gab auch eine Sonderausgabe "Centennial" in silber und mit 76 Tasten - davon gab es 300 Stuck.
DETAILS Keyboard does not send full velocity (max is not 127), so it will not cover all synths dynamics.
SOUND everything metallic, percussive, bizarre digitale landscapes, bells, e-pianos, experimental SOUND alles metallische, perkussive, glockige, e-pianos aber auch interessante bizarre digitale landschaften, experimentelles.
VERSION es gab noch eine Version des DX7II: den DX7IIFD (mit diskettenlaufwerk), sonst identisch . Jellinghaus DX ProgrammerJellinghaus DX Programmer works with Dx7 and Tx7 via SysEx, so it should also work with the TF1 modules in the TX816 etc.
YAMAHA or Nippon Gakki Yamaha wasn't the first synth maker but after the monsterous and heavywight CS80 the DX7 was a little revolution in sound (FM synthesis and much more realistic sounds) and sold very very well, later innovations like physical modeling did not even hit the sales of later FM synths like the SY99 or FS1R.

The manual for the DX7 states that the battery should last for 3 to 5 years and it was well past that time. The main board was a little difficult to remove from the chassis after all screws and connectors were out.
To remove the old battery, I used a solder sucker to get rid of most of the old solder which makes it easier for the old battery to pry up and out. I talked to a guy at Yamaha USA and he told me that E “gray matter should be fine after installing a new battery which I was able to get from Yamaha Canada where I live for $20 including shipping. I will pay a technician to install the battery, as I wouldn’t be capable, and just pray it all goes alright. Equipped DX7 with a dead battery, and although I haven’t tried to replace the battery yet, I believe the scrambled memory problem is just the E! I have what appears to be the right replacement battery,and I too am getting the scrambled LEDS, with no read-out in the LCD.


However, I checked the battery status and it fluctuates over extended use (shows 3.3v at the moment). Yamaha owns Steinberg and SCI (Sequential Circuits) and the Prophet name and had about 40% of Korg for a time.Official Intl. Since the DX7 does not have any built in effects, some reverb was added to fill out the sound a bit.
Our forums also has a Buyer’s Guide section where you can ask for advice on buying synthesizers.
If you don't find it there, try looking in our forum marketplace or post a wanted classified. Import charges previously quoted are subject to change if you increase you maximum bid amount. Does anyone know if there is a batter for the “gray matter” circuit as well or is there just one battery for the DX7? For comparison there was a 4 MHz clock frequency (a nice beautiful 4 MHz sine wave) at pins 4 and 5 of Sub CPU IC 13. Our marketplace gets thousands of visits every week so make sure to check back often if you want to buy or sell a synth. If you reside in an EU member state besides UK, import VAT on this purchase is not recoverable.
You have to angle the main board between these tabs and the back of the chassis to lift the board out. The trace between the battery’s positive lead and the next component (which is a diode) had been severed.
Innovation gab es auch mit dem Physical Modelling Synthesizer VP1 und VL1, jedoch waren die kommerziell bei Weitem nicht so erfolgreich. To replace the battery you basically have to take the whole synth apart, but Yamaha tries to make the procedure as painless as possible. I have checked he internal battery voltage which is 2.99v read from the top of the battery to ground, synth unplugged from mains.
