Fried Enhanced Joystick Pin?

Recommended Posts

Hi Guys


I've been trying to connect up a timing system to the enhanced joystick port on my STE.



Circuits is essentially




Pin 11 -------- o / (Switch) ------ 150 ohm ------Pin 9 (ground)


Seemed to work for a while and then it stopped sensing changes.. that is it now considers Pin11 to be permanently pulled down.


Have i fried the pin?

Is there anything to be done?

Nevermind. It's not fried.

For some reason its staying low sometimes. This may be because its simply directly connected instead of picking rows etc by sending a mask.


I'm not really sure what to do about this. I made sure i'm sending no masks and it works for a while, then it just flips low and stays there until i connect up a joypad instead.
