I think you' re problem comes from the internal battery which can be out of order and needs to be replaced. I'm not sure of that but I had this problem on a dx7 and fixed it with a new battery. Ask other synth explorers to be sure

There is a tuning function on it, so make sure it's @ A-440. The only other explanation I would know of for it to act that way (if it were not just out of tune, but in and out of tune) would be an issue with the internal battery. I would look for the closest Yamaha service center in your area or synth tech, if you're not technically-inclined.

did you check the voltage on the screen? my dx7 has that option, so i am sure you can check the voltage. Getting the battery replaced shouldn't be too much of a hassle.

I know this might sound ridiculous. but check your portamento value. Weird, but you never know.

Portamento could be the answer. I don't remember if portamento is set to all the sounds simultaneously or is stored for each one.

I discard the tune function because It must not change at random. Anyway, check the MASTER TUNE function, It must show the value 0.

Internal battery could be the answer but I am in doubt.. Try to check deeply the synth (does it work well when midi hooked? etc) and let us know.
