Re: 11 bombs after TOS 1.04 upgrade

Atari ST machine’s with TOS 1.04 don’t need a FDD in order to start up, so best to leave it disconnected for now.

Was the machine running okay with the old ROMs?

Re: 11 bombs after TOS 1.04 upgrade

A photo of the relevant area of the board may help. Do you have a digital multimeter? If yes, test the +5V supply, if it is within +/-5% (4.75V to 5.25V) then it’s fine Have you checked to make sure that each and every EPROM pin is okay and not bent under the socket? What is the condition of the soc...

Re: Faulty Atari STe, won’t start up, flashing power led

Hello Antibaddy, welcome to the forum :D From the symptoms you describe, and as the PSU works in another Ste, I would say that the PSU is unhappy because something on the main board is either short circuit, or drawing an excessive amount of current. Hence the PSU is shutting down to protect itself. ...

Re: 520STm External Drive Solution

Machines without a built in floppy drive were intended to be used with an external floppy drive. You should find a pin-out of the 14 pin DIN connector here .

Re: Phillips CM 8853 monitor vertical ghost lines

It may be as the result of ripple on one of the DC supplies. Check the electrolytic capacitors on the various DC supply rails.

Re: STE issue: works in B/W hi res but not TV or colour monitor output

Not sure if this exactly matches your symptoms, but the monitor DIN socket uses an input on one of the pins to detect which type of monitor (if any) is in use. If there is a fault on this input circuit, the computer will only work in the high resolution mode.
