Re: Upgrading a 520STFM from 512kb to 1mb question.

Well if you're happy with 1mb memory this board is the easiest to do as you only have to add the 4 x chips All the other capacitors are already there Just finding those chips! have a look on ebay I'd try and match the same speed chips or as close as you can, otherwise as you say 70ns or 100ns are ok...

Re: Falcon / TT and Mega STE repairs - does anyone do them?

I do not know what the problems are with the motherboards otherwise i would attempt the repair myself!

What i mean't was the problem with the computer is a problem or problems somewhere on the motherboard and nothing to do with the power supply / floppy drive etc

Falcon / TT and Mega STE repairs - does anyone do them?

Does anyone know of anyone who can potentially repair faulty Falcon / TT and Mega STE motherboards ?

These are not easy problems, they are motherboard specific and require time and a certain level of skill

If anyone can help or knows of anyone please let me know :)

Re: External hard drive issue with ST (can't write to drive after power down)

Also this Supra PCB has a back up battery in the form of a Dallas chip (DS1287) which i guess is dead by now

Would this be the problem?

There is a link on the PCB (J1) which disables the battery back up option, if i do this it makes no change
