Re: FALCON 030 RTC

I am sorry to say that I have now removed the Exxos RTC module and installed a Dallas DS12887+ module into the IC socket and time is now correct when the Falcon has no power. I will check the clock again tomorrow to make sure that it keeps time over an extended timeframe.

I have been monitoring the RTC time and it looks like the clock is advancing but not at normal seconds so time is slowly drifting back. I have also now removed the additional capacitor but the RTC clock is still slow when the Falcon is off and unplugged. To me it looks like the crystal is not oscill...

Re: FALCON 030 RTC

Now that the Falcon boots up fine and NVRAM looks fine but it looks like the clock stops ticking when the Falclon is turned off.

I was using the Gotek with a disk image containing the files. The reset program obviously loads from the floppy and m...

Re: FALCON 030 RTC

Finally removed my dead Dallas RTC and have fitted a low profile IC socket. I have installed the Exxos RTC but I have the same issue that Gazak28 had. Once I set the date and time, then turn the Falcon off and unplug the power lead for a short while, the Falcon will not boot up when I reconnect the ...
