Re: Refurbishing a STe Skynet PSU

Safe bet is to get new ones of same capacity and if possible (due to dimension concerns) of higher voltage. Pick 105C line.

I kindly disagree with about anything you say =) But I guess that's ok^^ Well in that case it would be perhaps wise to explain what and why you disagree, right? Am I wrong?

Re: Hydrogen Peroxide Bath - ??Harm??

Just add TAED to the H2O2 then it works much more gently. Contrary to what this author says I suggest not to mix peroxide with any other chemical, keep it as pure as you can. Now TAED is a oxide process booster, I can not imagine how could it make anything "more gently". By the way, TAED ...

Re: Hydrogen Peroxide Bath - ??Harm??

... If not, then I will probably pry off the key caps and find another way to keep them submerged. What I do is that I use clear glass with a screw-on lid. I chose right size, so that keycaps alone fill about 2/3 of inner space and then use a liquid peroxide to fill the glass almost full. Dont expo...

Re: DVE DSP-508A power supply unit schematic

Hmm so afterall, it was not that hard. I have suspected that big ceramic x2 capacitor in input L-C_L filter, but it turned out rectifier bridge was blown. Cleaning, recap and looks like I am gonna have spare STE PSU :)

DVE DSP-508A power supply unit schematic

Hello,

does anyone know if this schematic is available online somewhere? Alternatively I would appreciate some hints as I have a unit for repair, which is miserably failing on input line (blows 1A fuse instantly). No visually burned component or PCB issue.

Thanks!

Re: New and hello. Also please help

Welcome. Very briefly: USB FDD is generaly no-go for transferring files onto unmodified ST, as most of the games comes on floppy formats USB FDD simply does not handle. IMO easiest way for you to start would be to buy cheapest Gotek drive available, install HxC firmware on top of it and install that...

Re: A Simple (?) Virtual Floppy Drive?

It seems like the author of the mod just disassembled some plain compact USB card reader, removed USB connector and wired it up to corresponding Gotek USB solder points. I wonder if any USB card reader will do. Maybe even a CF one?
