Ensoniq were taken over by EMU a while back so discussions on both products can be put here.

Curse! This means the end of the horned phonograph and the little doggie that looks in to it.

I don't have the service manual but when the morpheus and ultraproteus die it's usually the battery, has this been replaced yet?
After replacing the battery a reset is often necessary to get it back to life.
Initialize / Reset for emu morpheus and ultraproteus:
hold both cursor keys held down to access diagnostic mode while powering on.
Only initialise and reboot from the diagnostics page, DONT use other options
as they can be dangerous if you don't know what you're doing!

Thanks Tux . . . . ((i))

Yeah, the battery is a favourite suspect, but actually wasn't (yet) in this case . . . . :?

I did some poking around online and found this advice . . .
To enter the Diagnostic mode . . . . . .

Hold down <Master> and <Cursor Right> while powering ON. N.B. any user stuff in memory will be lost . . . .

The Midi test will fail UNLESS you have a midi lead connecting Midi IN to Midi OUT
I could not find this in the USER Manual - so I guess it's in the Service Manual???

Some claim that the Battery is socketed.

Replacing it IS advised however (Then repeat the diags. above)

I'm GUESSING that the ROM content will NOT be lost (as it is in ROM) - so after a new battery and diags test,

it should be business as usual . . . .

The Original Battery is Lenmar CR2330 3V

My Mate said that the Diags did the trick and he's up and running again (Y)

I told him to bear in mind that a new battery WILL be required at some point - probably soon . . .

The Morpheus has been around a while - and he had it from new . . . .
