Re: installing a TF534 in atari 1024stf

The STF with the CPU under the keyboard is quite hard to upgrade. The space between the keyboard and the CPU is very narrow, Another issue is the fact that Atari soldered the 68000 CPU to the PCB, so you need to desolder the chip, that is not an easy job. After desoldering the CPU you need to solder...

Re: ZX Spectrum 48K Refurb

I have few of them, I grew up with those little machines. I've built a Harlequin 48KB clone, a Nuvo128 clone and a Just Speccy 128 clone. Just to flex my soldering skills :mrgreen: I also have some peripherals, like a DivMMC, great device, an Interface 1 with working microdrive in mint condition and...

Re: Amiga 500++

After I finished soldering, I tried to fit the SRAM board, it wouldn’t fit :( Fitted DRAM’s instead.

Re: Amiga 500++

All Done! The Amiga 500++ is ready. Has taken some time, while waiting for stuff to arrive. Finally finished soldering. The board is 95% new electronics and the rest is from the donor board. Tested wit DiagROM with the 68000 CPU on it. Ordered DRAM's from eBay and 3 out of 8 did not work, so replace...

Amiga 500++

I got myself an A500++ PCB, very nice board in it’s purple color. I am going to build a reproduction of the Amiga 500+, but with a twist. I will equip it with 2 mb of chipram on board, which will be an SRAM board. Looking forward to building this and posting my progress here.

Re: IDE adaptors in H4

I cannot recommend it, I have had this type of IDE controller in one of my STE's. The cable needs to be short, because it's unbuffered. That's one thing... Installation is quite fiddly, because you have to remove the CPU and insert this board into the PLCC socket, the CPU goes in the PLCC socket on ...

Re: Atari still crashing after power supply recap.

The first capacitor I spotted is the left one at the front, that one is 220uF, 200 Volt. I’ve recapped one of my SR98 PSU’s and that one was a 47uF, 400 Volt one. Exxos already mentioned it, the other capacitors look really small.....
