Re: Image of truth...

More of a single malt person myself. :-) I tend to be too busy doing any number of the things I call hobbies to post much. But, I love it when I get an Atari up and running. I get to play with some good gear at work too, I set up 720TB of storage in three chassis today. Three quarters of a petabyte,...

Re: Image of truth...

Pretty much why I don't get on facebook much. Death by a thousand posts.

Kicking back and looking cool, by the looks of it. :-)

Re: Top of the pile

It was, unfortunately it has given up the ghost. More than just caps, it seems. I replaced the reg as well but I'm getting nada out of it. I can't get any 6 chip varieties to work, it may be the burnt roms I have aren't burnt correctly. The ULM demo sort of fires over, but no desktop. 1.02 is fine, ...

Re: Top of the pile

Success. Man that reset switch was an absolute mongrel. Only thing left is to try the 6 chip 1.04 sets I have. 1.02 2 chip is cooking with gas, I installed a jumper to make it easier. https://s19.postimg.org/uag5fgs7n/20180312_135635.jpg https://s19.postimg.org/4rnt2fdsj/20180312_135723.jpg https://...

Re: Top of the pile

If it is enough for the Mega, all good. I'll give it a re cap. Next step is reinstall the smoothing cap, drop TOS 1.04 in, put three jumpers in for ROM select, replace the reset switch, swap the PCB's of the PSU's around and put the thing back together. All I need is a bit of time.

Re: Top of the pile

Swapped a few caps out, and the rectifier. No dice. I'll have to sit down a bit longer with this one I think. However, I had an epiphany, I have a deceased megafile 30 lying around so I decided to pull the PSU out and have a looksee. It has a Mitsumi SR151 in it. I figure if it can run an ancient MF...

Re: Top of the pile

I decided to have a quick look at the Mega's last night, it occurred to me that the mega4 might kick over if I pulled the 1000uf cap. It did. Progressed to a ROM/RAM black screen and no longer throws rubbish up. Which leads me to believe the bulk of my issue is confirmed. Power supply. Current deliv...

Re: Top of the pile

My eyesight isn't as good as it used to be. :lol: Didn't see that next to the shifter. So RP3,4,5, and 6. Makes sense. A SIL array might take some time to find, locally. I have a few parts on order, so this one might have to get put aside till they arrive. Probably time to replace the RAM in my 130XE.

Re: Top of the pile

You mean the 16x 33 ohm resistors, right? STFM's don't have this cap.
