Re: Corroded components on BBC B Motherboard

I'm guessing that when something's this badly damaged it's likely to be a write-off? I've just gone through the exact same process with one of these boards. It looked bad but, after carefully removing the battery and processor I managed to clean the PCB ( neutralised with white vinegar - look elsew...

Re: Worth Taking a Look At

Its totally disappeared from any history, normally it tells you its been pulled or something but the entire listing has disappeared as if it never existed.
I have also been the victim of this several times recently... only to see them pop back up a few days later.

Re: (Yet another) Memory Question

The dead bits show up as vertical lines in the diagonal sequence. Put it in 16k mode ( S25 ) south. This will let you see the upper 16k block. Run Tricky's test OS ROM.... Let it cycle through.. Take some quality close up photos of the right hand side of the screen, when the diagonal test is running...

Re: (Yet another) Memory Question

I only get the vertical bars on both the working and faulty systems
That is strange because if the ROM is working correctly you would see it operate correctly on a working system.
You can test the image in Beebem to see the correct sequence.
