+Lymang Posted August 3, 2022 Share Posted August 3, 2022 I received my Concerto very quickly, but was a bit nonplussed by the absence of any install/manual/paperwork of any kind. Thankfully these forums provided enough info, and I just hoped for the best with a rom pack by Trebor and managed to get it up and running. I see it had the latest firmware already that the forums were showing, probably due to receiving the cart in the last week. I have two extra loose Ballblazer red label carts so I thought I could extract the Pokey out of it to put in the Concerto. I was massively naive and assumed I could just pull the chip out of the socket on the cart's pcb and voila, but of course I discovered the chip is soldered to the cart pcb. So a few questions: 1. It says "7800 Pokey Cart Rev A" on the pcb. I assume that is appropriate for the POKEY needed on the Concerto? 2. I have very little soldering experience, but I do have the equipment. How hard should it be for me to desolder the chip from the cart? Thanks in advance for any assistance. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
