Re: Faulty Atari 520STe - black screen

as you stated it, let's make it simple : with the STE PSU, the 68000 behaves normally if i read you carefully, right ?

So this means that something on your STFM PSU is making the 68000 going "hot". One of the components or maybe some are causing this problem.

Re: STe - Bad DMA Chip

the other problem is that the STE got 14 different revisions of motherboards, and the modifications made have never been documented anywhere. One thing is sure, the STE with MB final revision and final DMA version were built end during 1991. STE machine made between 1989 and 1990 have beta revision ...

Re: Never Ported respectively released for ST

Remember seeing a claim that suggested Interceptor (E.A) never made it to ST as coder found it rather ironic that the very people who'd bought the ST as it was cheaper than the Amiga, had killed it by pirating it's software... There was just as much, if not more piracy for the Amiga and PC though. ...

Re: Recapping an ST board - is it worth?

I've actually checked not only the capacity of de-soldered caps, but also ESR and leakage current. For the tested units, they were all well in specs. Actually their ESR was better than some brand new generic Chinese LowESR 105*C rated equivalents. anyway, capacitors are parts made to make the machi...

Re: Recapping an ST board - is it worth?

I think it is worth it to recap your power supply if you want to keep your Atari running. I had a 20 year old epoxy filled Spectrum power supply go up in smoke and was glad it didn't damage my Speccy. I don't know if Wang capacitors were that bad. The Bad Capacitors web site was, I thought, in resp...

Re: Recapping an ST board - is it worth?

Have you ever found an faulty electrolytic capacitor on the ST board? I haven't - either on the board, nor on the PSU. According to my experience these WANG'S CAPs were high quality, and all still, after 30 years, are up to their specs. What is your experience in this matter? Are you aware that WAN...

Thanks for the job, ijor. Works fine! May I ask you how you shifted the index? @dlfrsilver: it works with TOS 1.0, TOS 1.04 or TOS 1.62 (I use Steem 3.9.4). Got the same issue as yours with TOS 1.02 only. It fails under Steem 3.9.3 even under STE/TOS 1.62. I upgrade to steem 3.9.4. Under Steem 3.9....

Hi, Strange, didn't decrypt the loader yet, but it seems to fail when looking for something at track 1. It never attempts to read the copy protected sector at track 0. It might be a bad Pasti conversion. Please provide or email the RAW files. It is known if the disk actually works? Hi Ijor, I need ...
