    see eg here about the 4pin vs 5pin (short answer: the ID pin is not needed).

    What kind of support are you missing?

    Looks like the typical latch-up in the CPLD. Please send the unit for repair. Please do read this article before sending anything back!

    Just for record....

    I am a huge fan of Amiga Commodore for almost 30 years. But for me it is very hard and expensive to keep this hobby. Here in Brazil, due high taxes about 60% over imported produts and the exchange that is 6 for 1, one dolar=6…

    All of it can be damaged. Thats why you should generally use a simple EPROM cartridge for "Dead Test" and "Diagnostic" type of things. (They might be damaged too, but they are cheap and easy to fix)

    It may harm the Chameleon. You never know what type of defect the computer has, and it may be a constant voltage driven on a bus that is normally 3-stated. As a result, the Chameleon may be damaged. For a dead-test cartridge, it's…

    This sounds like you're also mounting memory from the Radeon card. There may be a conflict with the software that Elbox provides. We've had this kind of trouble before - please try to de-activate their softwrae-clutch-solution first, then report back.…

    Harm the faulty C64 or harm the Turbo Chameleon?
    And in the case of the latter, can the Turbo Chameleon be harmed where a regular test cartridge or a BackBit will not?

    In theory you can, but it's not recommended to connect the Turbo Chameleon to a faulty C64, as it may harm your device, and void warranty...

    Hi.

    If I have a dead c64 that doesn't display any picture, can I use a dead test cartridge rom from Chameleon and see the dead test software interface on a VGA monitor?

    Did the board-shuffle. Turns out that the BigRamPlus only works if I remove the ZZ9000! I’ll report to MNT Research to investigate.

    The motherboard jumpers are both set to ‘INT’ (as the manual describes: INT for 040@40, EXT for 040@25 and 060@50. Setting them to ‘EXT’ results in a black screen and a non-booting computer.

    I have yet to try shuffling the boards - will report back.

    Hi Jens,

    So I took your advice and changed the MEMTYPE from closed to open. This stopped the early boot error. This I believe reduces the memory allocation to less then 256MB. However, When I now boot the machine I get the Ramlib error shown in…

    Not yet - I did have an offer from the US, but I was hoping to buy a card from "not so far away". I'd prefer owning one of these cards, as only this will ensure future updates and proper testing. Programming without a test bed is…

    Don't worry, we're keeping track of everything that was shipped to us, and if it was sold through a reseller, the return shipment also goes through the reseller.
  • Thanks Jens
    Just for clarity, send just the unit for repair as discussed in the link below?
