Heya,

 

Love my Harmony cart. Only used it a few times.

 

I recently got back from a week long vacation fired up my 2600 and my harmony cart now only shows a black screen.

 

Before I left for vacation I had played some games from it fine. Left it plugged in the entire time I was gone. Came back. Black screen.

 

I tried a regular game in the same Atari. Pitfall II works just fine.

 

I tried cleaning the harmony cart as described in the manual. It was a little dirty. But cleaning the contacts has not helped.

 

I also tried reflashing it on my pc via the micro usb. (1.05)

 

My pc detects it and connects to it just fine.

 

reflashing however did not get me past the black screen. :(

I verified the SD card I am using still seems good (my pc can read/write to it just fine.)

 

I am trying another sd card right now.

Anything else I can try?

There were some older beta versions that did truncate the filenames. I'd try the official 1.06 release.

 

I did a cursory search for it here myself here and couldn't find it (or remember what thread I posted it in) so I will post it here.

 

It *should* of course be in the latest BIOS thread but apparently it's not. I will try to get it posted in the first post there, too.

Thanks for the update! :) Glad I got it working again.

 

For a little while there I was a sad panda.
