Re: Dead Falcon - no boot / coloured screen only

Did you check for any physical damage? Probably small, possibly from a desk drop/tumble. Broken solder points? Check with a magnifying glass, 10x or better. rarely do falcon chips go bad. Possible but unlikely. Your symptoms suggest something physical, in my very small opinion. Perhaps do the 'bake...

I have noticed the Falcon video DAC IC (small square IC next to the Videl) this DAC IC gets warm and quite hot after a while


This is ok, DAC is known to get hot! So rule that out.

Re: Dead Falcon - no boot / coloured screen only

Hey chan are you getting a different colored (artifacts) on your screen since you replaced the combel? Also i see your using VGA to ST adaptor to do test, you should just use the standard VGA port with monitor, this will give you a more precise view of whats happening.

Re: Exxos Clock patch

Is it possible that you could have made a mistake on the installation? Also is your Falcon completely stock? Also when you say 'this new clock patch' do you realise he has two versions, the first one has been around for a few years, the second was released only in the last few months. But yeah you'...

Re: Exxos Clock patch

Well, if you want specifics on Exxos clockpatch, the best is probably to ask him. He started his own forum which is easy to find. There are many clockpatches, and while some generally work better than others, there is not one universal clockpatch that works on every falcon. There is some individual...

Exxos Clock patch

Hi guys i wanted some input on your exxos clock patch’s. I recently installed one on one of my Falcons and seems not to be working well. I am getting horrible pops and computer freezing on certain programs. For instance loading up “Beams” demo it freezes out right on after main screen, and some othe...

Re: CT60 UNKNOWN FLASH DEVICE!

I'll try the CT60 on my other Falcon and report back what I find, and then I go forward from there. Some have said that the header pins on the Falcon "rust" and it is a good idea to replace the headers, but I'll check everything out first. Reflowing/replacing the solder on the CT60 is a g...

Re: CT60 UNKNOWN FLASH DEVICE!

I do have a different Falcon to try, but I'm not sure I want to mess with my perfectly working CT60e Falcon with SuperVidel :-) I may try if I get the courage. Does anyone know if you can flash the Boot/TOS with a PC/Xilinx jtag instead of Didier's tool and a Falcon custom jtag? I'm suspicious that...

Re: CT60 UNKNOWN FLASH DEVICE!

IIRC the CT60 and CT63 have different flash/rom chip. So you need another CTflash tool. Try to find the older flash tool for CT60... something before the CT63 release. That's all I can advise. Good luck. They should be same flash “29F800” ram chips wongck, i am thinking he may have shorted the flas...

Disassembly of Flash060.prg

Hey gang, i am in need of someone who can disassemble up the source flash060.prg and explain the Way the program is being executed. Basically single blocking the program and explain the communication between Falcon and CT60 Flash ram. I am willing to compensate for your time thanks!

I don't think the clockpatch (or lack of) would cause something like this. Clock patches fixes DMA issues, there is no DMA involved here.[/quote]

Re: Falcon Pal mobo and clock Patch owners

Well the remote debugging of this kind is very difficult, but have you checked all the connectivity between Falcon motherboard and CT60? That is where I would start. Over the age, all the pinheaders become oxidated. Moreover, if they were mechanically stressed, solder joints develop hair cracks (co...
