Re: not-so-stable TT

Is the scsi2sd installed internally? How have you set up the scsi2sd interface (parity, ID, termination etc), also do you have the internal terminating resistor packs installed (on the main board right near the external scsi port)? 2 bombs is an address error, so I’m inclined to think this is a scsi...

For Sale: Lots of stuff

The time has come for me to have a huge clear out due to some changes in my life. I'll be keeping a few special items for myself, but the bulk of my collection has to go. To make things fair, I have listed everything on eBay with 99p start price and no reserve. Here's the list: Atari RoboKit https:/...

Re: Replacing 1040 ST FM keyboard with a 520 ST FM one - Drive's Busy Light always on

Yeah, that’s normal. My ST I had back in the day did this. Probably some bleed from a clock. More a design issue than a fault.

Re: TT and Mighty Mic 32b

Before whipping out the multimeter, it’s probably worth re-flowing the solder on the simm socket(S). Cold solder joints through mechanical stress of inserting/removing Simms will be the most likely cause of failure.

That should be fixed now. Only 3 years late!

Re: The FPGA and non-Atari cores deserve the cover of this forum?

I can see the argument here. For those who may not know the full history, when MiST was first developed, it was purely designed with the intention of being an Atari ST implemented in FPGA. So it naturally found its home here on AF under the 'clones' section. Of course, more and more cores were devel...

There have been an influx of posts on the Off-topic forums lately. That is why we have them.

Re: STE power supply problem / switches on and off constantly

Disconnect the PSU from the board and check the 5V line (preferably on an oscilloscope if you have one) to see if it’s constant. If OK, then it might be worth replacing the 4700uf cap on the board.

Re: 1040 STE capacitors

Replacing the 4700uf on the board is usually a good idea as it acts as a reservoir for the 5v line. That and the PSU caps plus the bridge rectifier is usually enough.
