KORG M1 Will not power up after Battery Replacement

Post by TreyF70 » Sun Jun 21, 2020 5:28 pm

Greetings, My Dad is a professional and musician and gave me his old Korg M1 because it doesn't work. Plugged it in and it turned on, but with error message that the battery was bad. So, I took it apart and it's under the motherboard is nothing more than a Sony CR2032 which I just happened to have. Energizer CR2032 and replaced it. Now it only seems to have 1 sound. (Shitty Piano) not regular Piano (HA) I am wondering if there is a way to restore the factory sounds without a CARD or Mini-USB computer transfer.

Sorry there is no way, you have to either use a factory card or send the factory sysex via midi
It is all about sharing...
