Roland D110 Noise Floor

Been craving D50 sounds lately but dont have the budget so I did the next best thing and replaced the battery on my junker D110 that needed changing when I bought it 5 years ago. But I plug it in to find that it has a hideous noisefloor. HIDEOUS. like -60 to -50 db and the choir patch comes in at -20. Using cleaned balanced snake and patch cables btw Just coming out the Stereo Out... Ive heard its notoriously noisy and I have plenty of other Roland noise coming in Via JX and Juno Chorus at most times, but what other troubleshooting can I do to keel the noise? Would it be less noisy running without the FX or monotimbrally out of one of the other 4 pairs of jacks?

Also wondering if the D50 is as noisy bc if it is i'll put that lust to rest...

D50/550 is much quieter than D10/20/110 and MT32.
