  1. Hi ijor, thanks for the info. Another question, what software do you require for this? Regards
  2. I have a question of those who know how this works. If you can back up protected software for preservation with this device, can you also write disks from these protected back up files? The reason I ask this is because I have several original disks (manuals and packaging) which sadly no longer load due to surface damage/degradation, and I would like to write a disk and then put the floppy mylar into the original disk sleeve.
  3. Gnusto, have a look here, slightly more affordable, but still expensive for a tape in my opinion. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Atari-400-800-XL-XE-Tape-Game-Shamus-by-Americana-Synapse/324159001017?hash=item4b7961d1b9:g:VgUAAOSw6OletGBF Regards
  4. Remove all socketed ICs and check there is no tarnishing on the pins and sockets. If there is clean them. If in doubt clean them. If you have a can of compressed air, blow through the sockets to clear any debris. Reseat all the ICs and test. Regards
  5. Hi Voxel, that would be great. Regards
  6. Hi, can I get 2 please, or is that too small an order? Regards
  7. Hi Panos, I'm interested in one please. Regards
  8. Hi TGB1718, how are you getting on with Happy 1050? Regards
  9. Very strange. When you examine the bottom set of solder pads, they don't appear to have been tinned ready for soldering, they appear to be bare copper. Also the solder in the through holes would appear to be from the wave soldering process.
  10. Hi, try this. Happy1050.bin Regards
  11. Hi TGB1718. if you can't find the problem with the board, I'm just up the road south of Lincoln if you want me to have a look at it for you. Regards
  12. It certainly can't hurt. I have this version of the Happy board and I found some of the soldering left a lot to be desired. Does your board have a resistor pack across pins 8 - 16 of the 6502?
  13. You should also check the value of the resistor, as it is not 4k7 ohms.
  14. SIDE2 updated successfully, using FJCs video, great work there. Now I need to get the Ultimate 1MB installed and then run the update. Regards
  15. And a Happy May day to you Bee. Stay safe.
