664 help urgently required!
« on: 17:51, 05 February 16 »
I brought a 664 as a fixer-upper project..

I eventualyl plugged it in and all I got was a grey screen.. I took it apart to clean it up, took out the 40010 and 40015 ROMs to clean underneath, plugged them back in and now the 40010 is very hot.

I don't want to jinx it anymore so is there anyone who could supply me with a cheap 40010 ROM (if they have one spare) and maybe give my 664 a going-over please?

Many thanks
Patrick J Furlong

Wasn't the 40010 the GA? Or do I mix it up?

Yes, unfortunately it's the Gate Array.


If you happen to have some spare CPC board with either a 40008 or a 40010 Gate Array, you could use them to repair the 664.


Edit:Maybe you can get one at Cent Pour Cent.

  • It's not broken, it just hasn't been fixed yet.
