So I picked up a Yamaha DX5 locally for a GREAT price! The catch is that there are a few small problems that I'm still trying to sort out... think you can help?
The main problem is that I cannot get sound from any of the six main outputs (3 x XLR and 3 x 1/4"). Sound, glorious sound , will output from the headphone jack however. Also, I noticed that when I moved the Volume slider I'd get a crackling/scratchy sound out of the main outputs which stopped after I used deoxit on it. This leads me to believe that it's just a setting that has all the outputs turned off, but I can't seem to find what setting that could be. I've heard of the DX7 having a local mode that can turn on and off the outputs, but have yet to find or figure out anythings about it on the DX5. What do you think?
The second problem is that there's a chip missing!!!!! Well, I think there is anyway... see pics below. I'm guessing that this has something to do with the Cartridge A memory as the button to select Cartridge A for use doesn't work while Cartridge B works perfectly. Everything else seems to work fairly well for the most part. Any ideas? Also, how do these look for replacements (I can't seem to find only one): http://www.ebay.com/itm/3-PSC-MBM27256-25-EPROM-SUPER-RARE-GOLD-PLATED-FACE-27256-VINTAGE-IC-/171167246030?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item27da5ce6ce
Thanks for reading and for the help!
