My FinalGROM99 cart went to big ROM dump in the sky. Still for sale?


Recommended Posts

With much sadness, my original 2017 FinalGROM99 cart finally bit the big one today, I think.  I simply can't get it to load no matter what I do- it was working a couple months ago.

 

Are these carts or boards still for sale?  I have the shell and an SD card, but alas my board is deader than a hammer.

ok- this story actually has a really funny ending.

 

sighing and dejected, i unplugged everything starting with my PEB.  I had to tilt my PEB to get to the power cord, so while i was at it i went ahead and reseated the cards inside (I have a disk controller, a parallel card, and a 32k card), and also reseated my speech synthesizer and firehose cable.

 

the corpses of three ladybugs fell out somewhere along me doing this stuff, so i'm wonder if the fix was either me reseating the cards or the ladybug corpses, lol.

 

Either way, I'm good to go; Cubit came right up on my FG99, which was the reason I went through this whole exercise in the first place. 😅  What a morning!
