YamahaDX7 "Not Ready! Insert Cartridge

Post by Rjmdrum » Mon Dec 19, 2016 5:01 pm

Hi
I am new to forum and I am looking for anyone who might have experience with the original Yamaha DX7.
My battery still reads at 2.8 but I am having an issue whereby none of my ram cards are getting ready anymore and I received a message that states "Not ready! Insert cartridge" whenever any cartridge is put into the slot. There must be an issue somewhere in there with a faulty connection etc.
thanks in advance for any input.

Your text is kind of cryptic. I do not really understand you.
Some algorithm for you for troubleshooting:

IF ((ROM_cartridges_work_fine)= true)
{

OPEN_the_RAM_cartridges;
IF (cartridgebatteryvoltage < 2.8V ) THEN replaceBattery;

}
ELSE
{
Re-insert_the_cables_on_all_connectors.
}

TryAgainWithRAMcartridge;
IF ((the problem is still there) = true) THEN call for help.


;)
