Apparently you can create ozone with a UV tube after googling about my earlier question, so I popped a mouse into my DIY shoe box eprom eraser and didn't notice any difference either, LOL.

This science lark is contagious.

Re: Hissing and whistling in the STe audio output

I'm pretty sure it's the same noise that the TT produces (though when accessing TT RAM it's far louder)... The volume on the external speakers was turned up high and the internal speaker was turned off. Does sound similar indeed. I think the whole DAC circuit is almost identical ? Question is to is...

Re: Retrobright ozone method

Onto the next pointless tests.. I've sealed the mouse button itself in a bag of ozone, and I will just leave it like that for a few days to see the does anything at all.. Though unlikely to get much sunlight.. I thought the other button in some water and now running ozone on it.. I doubt it will do ...

Surely it would be better to continuously pass new ozone through the bag rather than sealing it as the ozone would deplete quite quickly?
I followed what the guy in the video did to get results.. I had a lot larger back than he used full of ozone ..I did replace the ozone couple of times anyway.

Re: Retrobright ozone method

So this has been in direct sunlight for around three hours now.. Image below shows a side part of the mouse being the original and the button (top) part of the mouse being exposed to ozone.. The camera is not really showing the correct colours, the mouse is extremely yellow, and see the contrast in ...

How much was the ozone generator out of interest? and could you then use a UV tube to speed up the process, rather than leave it outside?

Retrobright ozone method

I saw this video reviewing many retrobright solutions... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qZYbchvSUDY Where he used a ozone generator with some limited success. He basically says the classic method of retro bright using peroxide is the best method. I am not disputing this, as it obviously works, but ...

Re: Hissing and whistling in the STe audio output

I tried my machine with the DAC fix.. I think it does help, but sounds still there. Though oddly, when I unplug the mains lead, all that "PC noise" stops.. so probably a grounding issue causing those sounds. I tried looking on my scope at the noise, but only really see MHz range noise, so tracing th...

Re: Memory Chip Test Rig

:dualthumbup: Geek points for you today!

Takes me like 10mins to get one chip into a socket, so a ZIF is a great idea!
