No Video out with STFM

Postby Heisenberg61 » Thu Jan 04, 2018 10:41 am

Hi everyone,
I have a 1040 stfm that has been in storage for a couple of years, but i dusted it off recently and tried to boot it up. It no longer seems to have any video output when connected to a TV set. It sounds like its booting up when i put a floppy in the disk drive and turn it on, but there is no video out to the TV. What can i look at to get this working again ? Any ideas on what might be wrong.. its plugged into the composite out port on the back of the system into one of the AV ports on my TV set.

It is not a AV Video Out. It is a antenna TV Out ...

do you mean the RF port ? you'll need to connect it to the aerial socket on your TV and 'tune' it in.

but as you have an FM, you can use the monitor port to connect to the AV socket on your TV, but you'll need to make a cable: ... site_cable
or buy one: ... xynwlTeKQ0

Other options are a scart cable, something like this: ... Swm8VUumvA

or again, you could make your own: ... itel_cable
