Adrian’s Digital Basement tries to fix a TI-99 that boots to a black screen

Recommended Posts

One of my favorite Youtubers attempts to fix our favorite computer. This TI has the dreaded black-screen on boot. 
 

I’m waiting for part 3.

He worked his rear end off trying to repair it.

 

It was a valiant attempt!   

I wanted to tell him I would send him a working motherboard so that he could part it out!

 

Motherboards regularly sell for less than $20 on eBay.  However, swapping motherboards is not nearly as entertaining!  🙂

So many twists and turns. I probably would have given up long before Adrian did.

 

I have a few black screen booting TIs. I’ll definitely be referencing this series in the future.
