CT63/CTPCI black screen at boot

Postby pgreffet » Sat Jul 20, 2019 10:05 am

Hi all
I have a Falcon with CT63/CTPCI/Radeon 7000/512mo SDRAM.
Everything was running smoothly but I really never achieved to have it boot from my compact flash drive. When I tried to switch from CF to classic ide drive there was a scramble image at boot of the CT63. I resented the system and it never displayed anything else than a black screen.
CT63 is still detected as I can flash it from Falc.
I have to say that Falc is booting ok when 060 mode is disabled by jumper on CT63
Help needed !
Thanks
Pierre

SO many possibilities. Weak/bad power supply. Bad memory. Wrong flash. Cold connection on some CT60 to F030 pinheader pins.

Sounds like it is toasted, i just fried both my ct60/ctpci not long ago, and was extremely bumbed. These are very delicate boards! We got to be very careful!

I had similar issues with CT63/EtherNat combo ten years ago... Rodolphe fixed CT63 by replacing one Xilinx chip on it (if I recall correctly). I think there was some problem with CT63/EtherNAT/expansion card combination, because both CT63 and EtherNat went bad, when this happened.

I sold a non working unit last year to a user in the US. Not 100% positive, think he managed a repair after a serious short.
I will have to research the buyer.

Ok, the buyer is known as "coldcreekplastics" on eBay.
Think he repaired the board.

Also, another unit I had went "black", but came back to life using a Xylinx USB programmer.

How do you contact Rodolphe directly ?

I just sent him an email back then and he agreed to fix my CT63. Not sure what his email is these days, but I guess you can also try to contact him via this forum?

It seems that the forum doesn't allow me to send PM because I am quite new here !
Could you please send me his last known email address by PM ?
Thanks
