I'm looking for help bringing my Falcon to life. I'm only getting black screen (ie. no vga activity/no signal at all)
The Falcon powers up (ie. LED, fan) - I checked the voltages and they seem OK. I checked CPU pin 6 and it's giving me 8MHz (Note: I only have a multimeter that happens to have frequency meter, I don't have an oscilloscope..).
I tried to check reset (as per http://atari-forum.com/viewtopic.php?f= ... C7#p273480
) and it seems I have a problem with reset as I don't get HIGH on U2 pin 2. When I press reset multiple times I can get HIGH on pin 2 and the monitor comes to life but displays "out of sync" (it's multisync na works fine with TT and other machines).
Another issue I have is the CPU - I'm not sure if it was somebody's custom job or factory but pin 7 is wired to U67 and pins 18 and 19 re lifted... CPU gets pretty hot after a minute or so...
Apart from that the motherboard seems to be untouched...
Also - pins 20 and 22 seem to be shorted on J20 connector - does anybody know if that's correct?
