TI99/4A replacement rom


Recommended Posts

Hi Guys,


I have troubleshooted a faulty PAL TI99/4A and luckily I had another working machine to test by swapping the IC's. The faulty TI99/4A gives a black screen with a continuous pitch sound. :_(

It appeared that one of the two ROM chips is faulty, when swapping this rom into the working machine I have exactly the same problem.


The ROM is the one sitting on the left of the two scratchpad Ram IC's and labelled :




My question is to know the best action to replace this ROM. Is it affordable buying one or can it be replaced with any compatible Eprom ? I do have a programmer so in case this can be done I would like to have a guideline on how to proceed :-)


Many thanks!
