You need to reload your sounds either via Sysex or by reprogramming them.

If you have the DX7 MK1, this info will apply. You need to connect your DX7 to a computer with a Midi cable (Computer Midi Out to DX7 Midi In)

Turn on the DX7. Press the green "MEMORY PROTECT- INTERNAL" button.
Press "No -1" to turn off memory protection.

Press "Function" then press the #8 twice. The screen should say "SYS INFO UNAVAILABLE."
Use the Data Slider until that value says "SYS INFO AVAILABLE"

Then use a program of your choice to reload the sounds. I am on Mac and like to use SysEx Librarian.
If you look around on google you can find the original banks, plus many many more.

Good luck!
