Re: Still good idea to buy DX7?

I raised the point about capacitors because whilst a unit might not have ‘failed’ and is working it will probably not sound like when new. Well - those caps failing are nearly invariably located at the psu's - plus those 'hanging' at the power rails - those in the audio path's are rarely concerned....

Re: Still good idea to buy DX7?

Hi Jupe, I would say: it depends on your needs (soundwise) AND the amount of cash you want to blow... I'm still satisfied with my trusty old DX7II/D - somewhat easy to repair (exept if in need of some 'custom made parts' which may be hard ti find nowadays). I've upgraded to the latest firmware revis...

Re: Yamaha MDP-5 LCD Replacement

Well, the screen is attached with a rather sticky glue, although it seems that in the front (the cover that covers it) the alcohol worked. But when I tried to remove the screen I slightly damaged it and I have not dared to continue. Ok - you did right in not trying to pull it further off (Y) Why do...

Re: Yamaha MDP-5 LCD Replacement

Is it doable to take out the display out of the housing to take a look at the backside? Perhaps there's some kind of label showing the 'type' of display used here to eventually find out if it is HD44780 compatible though... Many years ago I've illuminated my first DX7 - it was a DX7 Mk.I - the one w...

Re: Yamaha MDP-5 LCD Replacement

Oh wow! That display is an absolute different type of construction than I thought! Which means that none of the displays I've mentioned above will fit! What a bummer... 8O An idea what may work : to put some very small smd led (micro led) to the small edge(s) of the display so they shine 'into' the...

Re: Bought a DX7, not functioning properly

Hi Alex, welcome to the YamahaMusicians forum :D (Y) Lots of nice peolpe around here, always willing to help (if we can , of course :wink: ) What exact model of a DX7 do you have there: the (so-called) DX7 Mk. I or the DX7s or the DX7II/D-FD? The DX7 Mk. I is readily identifiable by having those 'me...

Re: The Casio stigma still lives .....

Well - I think it may have to do with 'promotional' reasons. I often see that especially keyboard players are taping over the manufacturer's name and eventually logo so the watchers/visitors cannot spot what gear they're using. Perhaps a band/musician is endorsed by company X but is also using some ...

Re: Yamaha MDP-5 LCD Replacement

The display is a (very common) 16x2 LC display - same kind as is used on a DX7 Mk.I. The unit is from 2002 so I suppose it works with 5 volts and is most likely HD44780 compatible... so eventually one of these may be a suitable replacement: https://www.buydisplay.com/default/character-2x16-lcd-displ...
