Jon,
Very well done in fixing your P2000C! Quite a feat to trace the fault in the FDC, good luck with the terminal.

Regards,
John

Thanks John

The terminal board fix is a long saga that's not yet resolved. You can read about it here: http://stardot.org.uk/forums/viewtopic.php?f=45&t=9566

I nearly had it going, then something failed and I am back to a completely blank screen. So I have bought a logic tracer from woodchips (on this forum) which I'm going to use to try and diagnose the problem. On the way I have learned an awful lot about the hardware and ROM, and it is all documented in that thread.

If anyone reading that has any ideas, well, you know... I would be very happy to read them!

The main point is that I will get it working. I've been beaten by broken hardware before, but not this time.

Cheers
JonB

Oh lovely, thank you, Roman! I've been away from it for a while, a combination of work, overseas holiday, sickness, domestic stuff and tiredness, but I am hoping to return to it soon.

At which point that stardot thread is going to get a kicking, Mark...
