Tandy 1000 TL/2 Error codes

Sun Jan 28, 2018 6:12 PM

Does anyone happen to have an error code list ?

I acquired a 1000 TL/2 with a 40Mb Hard Drive. It seems to spin up on boot, but a 1701 error code appears and then it boots from ROM.

The hard drive does not appear as the C: drive, ROM does.

After 5 or so minutes the machine seems to lock up.

If I remove the Hard drive and associated card, The computer boots and does not lock up.


I'm wondering what the 1701 code means ... other than "hey your HD is knackered" ;)



To socket or not to socket - TMS9900

I know reliability comes to mind. But what are the pros and cons of when replacing the TMS9900 that you bung in a DIP socket to make life easier the next time ?

Inquiring minds want to know :) 



NanoPEB is not always recognized.

My TI99/4A does not always seem to recognize my NanoPEB. Re-seating and and power cycling sometimes works. Other tines I don't seem to be able to work out why I don't get it to show up on the power-up screen. Any pointers to what is up ? It's driving me nuts!
