  1. I tried to DL the .zip file and the DL FAILED AS A VIRUS WAS DETECTED. Just saying.
  2. I don't know what DEADSTOCK is but I bought a 65XE Mexican built from Best Electronics and it is still the same machine. Brand new in box. Fired that mutter up no problem... Douglas
  3. Well, I built one and it was a bust. I had a few IC sockets that at the time I did not notice that there were no holes drilled into the pins for my gold plated machine pin sockets. I had to drill holes to correct but to no avail, it was a failure. de-soldering is a bitch! I built another one and it fired right up! Expect a trouble or two but... persevere! Enjoy your build and ask before you leap! Douglas
  4. Tong Schematics are available although hard to decipher. When matched with 1200XL , and a little hard work you would be a God if you would build a motherboard! Douglas
  5. Unfortunately, I am using the PIC as is but I have to go thru the button sequence to select my resolution every time I power back up. and I found that you have to be quick about it. I am also still getting the red led blink followed by two short blinks. When I adjusted the onboard switches to a different resolution, i did get a half second green led. I assume from what I have read in the thread that that is the GBS initializing the parameters. Cant wait for Sophia 3 to come out.
  6. Well, It took me a three week endeavor to get this to run but it now works. 1088XLD and VBXE and VGA2RGB carrier board. THANK YOU MYTEK! I have very muted colors. Attract mode colors are off. I flashed my GBSCTRL PIC out of unit using the joy2pic stick. Switches in the correct place and I have a stable pic to my VGA input on my screen. I have a DELL monitor on the way and perhaps that will help. We will see... Douglas
  7. I just ran across a page that had what is called and FCC label. Do a search for the label with that number and you may find it. FCC BPA83A800 Douglas
  8. Thank You Very Much! I was chasing issues with three 1050's giving BOOT ERROR and swapping mechs and MB Wound up being a bad power supply. I DL instructions for what I thought was a dead happy and whooldathunkit... It works with a tandon mech and installation instructions.
  9. Some surface mount LED's under those transparent keys would be epic! FUJI Rainbow RGB leds... This is looking awesome! I cant wait to build one.
  10. it seems the tandon is a bit off of the others i am getting parts to redo that motherboard so we will see
  11. I am totally happy that i have a happy..
