Repair Yamaha DX7 II FD Digital Synthesizer Reparatur Service
Yamaha DX7 (IIFD) restoration. Customer wanted to have all buttons replaced, sliders cleaned and he told me about a mechanically loose display. Here I replace the tactiles which is more or less a standard procedure these days.
The display glass was cracked / broken and I supported this from the underside.
Here you can see the little standoff I glued underneath.
Be careful. These old plastics do crack very easily if not already broken.
There are lethal voltage exposed in electronic devices. Unless you know what you are doing, don’t try this. If you following along, you doing so at your own risk.
I’m documenting repairs for my reference and yours.
