Atari mega st4

Postby Frode » Sat Oct 06, 2018 8:52 am


I recently got an Atari mega St4 from a friend.
unfortunately, only vertical lines/garbage appear on the screen when I turn it on.
I have refitted all refittable chips, but no change.
Can anyone point me in a direction, to where to start troubleshooting ?
I´m new to this

In the left pane, click Mega ST, and the locate the Mega ST service manual in the right pane. That should get you started.

Although the screen problems you describe, do point to RAM/MMU or videoshifter being faulty.
