Re: Bootleg Meteorites

Looks to me like a problem with the blanking line/spot killer circuit on the monitor board. Checked for cracked solder or bad header connections as well as short circuits/corrosion whiskers. Definitely don't leave it on more than a few seconds with that centre dot as it's burning a hole into the mi...

He has a lot of stuff to move from his place north of Montreal. So I get there and the place reeked of shit. LOL. Mar...

Re: Can someone help fix my Mata Hari?

A not booting MPU could be many issues . Can you post a picture of the MPU battery area , that's the board in the top left . If the battery leaked your MPU might not be worth repairing .
