Re: Do you think they went a bit skimpy on the solder?

Easy to replace, not a difficult part to get a replacement for…
And you do not even need to desolder it as it has almost no solder :-)

Re: Very old STM restoration project

It mostly happens in old PSU's and monitors but it can't hurt to check on this MB. It looks exactly like the conductive glue i pulled out an old monitor a few months ago, that was a difficult one to solve. The multimeter should be on the most sensitive setting, If you press the pins of your multimet...

Nice project,

Make sure the glue holding the wires on the underside of the board hasn't gone bad and got conductive, please test before powering on.

Re: Gotek / HxC Manager problem

Manhandling the board is enough to shift the MMU/GLUE/BLITTER in their respective sockets, as there is enough flex in the board and sockets for contacts to shift and either fail or work again. We often think of electronic faults immediately, but also need to consider the mechanical properties that ...

Re: 27C400/27C800 EPROM emulator

These days I always check USB cables with my multimeter, I have had 2 cables with VCC and GND swapped :o and a few with the data lines swapped.

And yes, the board i was working on at that time was destroyed with the swapped VCC and GND.

Re: Noob building a TF534

If I remember correctly there was an issue with WHDLoad and Cannon Fodder where you would need 1088KB Chip and at least 512KB slow/fast men. There was a patch for it that made it 1024KB chip and 512KB slow/fast. I would just try the expansion/MB jumpers and otherwise get one of the 8375/8375 A500 ad...
