“Up for auction is a used Yamaha TX216 Rack Synth with 2 FM Tone Generator Modules… AS IS.
I am the original owner and purchased it new. This item was working fine when I stopped using it. It’s been in storage for almost 20 years. Unfortunately the batteries died at some point and all of the onboard sounds were lost from memory. The images show its in really good shape otherwise.
I replaced the dead battery on each module (no corrosion present) and ran the audio test in the utility mode settings. Midi good. Both modules output the 440hz test tone fine so it should just be a matter of loading in the sound data into memory again. I have no way to load this data at this time.
I wasn’t happy with one the replacement batteries showing b 31 so I changed them both out with better ones that showed b 35. They still read b 35.” Click here to visit listing on eBay
