Folks , I'm needing a support here. My console is real dead. Open up today and removed the shield , cheked voltages , and visually inspection. power supply is good , I have Vcc on the pcb , removed all chips socketed, re-inserted (they were well tighted to the ICs support etc, ect,.. But at the end all I got is blank screen. Probably the STIC is dead. Just to check my suspect I would like to ask somebody to measure the main Stic Pins(1,17,20,40 ) in a working unity please, with any cart inserted. Also does anybody has a STIC available or can help me buy one ? I'm making some quotes but as it's a chip out of line, probably I'll have some difficulties to find one.

 

Rgds...

If you're in Michigan you could send me STIC and I could test em. I have an Inty 2 that is naked (no power supply, no working controller, no power supply board, just the mainboard and console shell) that works fine with the missing parts. If your STIC is bad I can swap it with the good STIC.

 

FWIW Intellivision 2 is easier to salvage parts, they didn't have the RF shield welded together like all other Intellivision systems.

It could be the CPU, or it could be some other problem with the cartridge interface. Check the grounds on the cart slot where you desoldered the shielding.

 

I'm interested in the chips (except the sound chip) from a dead motherboard to troubleshoot my flakey Inty if there's a set going. My inty runs, but has some bad logic somewhere that causes it to crash, possibly GROM, STIC or EXEC, or maybe CPU. But I'm in Australia :-(

I have some 'dead' Intellivision motherboards that you can have for postage from Hamilton, Ontario Canada

 

No guarantees that the stic chip isn't bad, but probably is OK.

Thank you Man . Hold on a little bit. I'm trying some units at Ebay, if I can't get it , I'll take your mobo.....

Cart interface pins checked. Everything is fine. Yes, can be CPU but I'll try STIC and RAM first. Regarding the chips I'm searching a supplier If I find one I advise.

I doubt you can find a supplier of GI chips, they were discontinued years before Al Gore "invented" internet. Your source would have to be used Intellivision. :(

Do let us know how that goes.

OK don't worry I'm also interested in see the whole buy/shipping process. These guys are from China/Hong-Kong and we nver know what can came from them. But as the risk is low , maybe worthwhile. I'm also trying to get a RA39600 and the CPU CP1610. But I let you aware of the process. meanwhile I bought another demaged unit (15.00) and will try to replace the parts.

Or chinese counterfeit of old stock? Hope it goes well, I've heard of bad things about ordering NOS chips that are discontinued by the original manufacturer. One story had chinese claiming it was sent, must have gotten "lost", etc while trying to hold onto your money until it's past any chance of chargeback.

 

Fingers crossed that you have legit source and trouble free shipment. With schematics on the internet, someone could probably redesign Inty to be better, uses better output than RF, etc like that Super 8 someone did.

No DZ , in fact in chinese. All quotes that I got were from chinese suppliers. This was the cheapest. I find them thorugh IC2IC

It does not mean that it's a safe buy but at least I have a place to shout at if things go wrong. Obviouçy also that I'm buying 20 bucks , not thousands. I wouldn't buy that much.

I am needing a STIC for my Inty. corrupted graphics. I bought one unit that was dead and then purchased another unit with corrupted graphics. while troubleshooting, I moved the STIC from the corrupted graphics unit to the dead board and it came to life and had the same graphics corruption, so I assume I have bad STICs. Anyone know where to get a couple?

You're in luck. I have a couple of spare STICs from 2609 model Intys. No good to me since my Intys are PAL, but I have no way to test so condition unknown. Pay postage and they're yours. PM me.
