Hello. > anyone here has the schematics of the 8296-D "switching power supply"? In case you remember, I posted earlier this year about a partly broken 8296-D (the one that emitted only garbage on screen). I replaced the 6545 chip and got it to work, except for the internal drives that had been damaged in the process of swapping parts. A few weeks ago when I tried to power it on: nothing! No chirp at all. Yesterday I tried again, and once got it to chirp and display a few random characters on screen, but upon more attempts no signs of life. I don't know enough about electronics to analyse the fault, in particular as it went from fully working to stone dead just by sitting on the floor for a few weeks. Perhaps I can acquire another partly broken 8296-D in the spring and use it to exchange parts, or otherwise I might consider this one beyond repair. In that case, I could remove the power supply, which I presume is still OK because the drive logic board powers on OK. -- Anders Carlsson Message was sent through the cbm-hackers mailing list
