Re: MZ-SD2CMT - correct wiring?

I have tested now, with pin2 on the Mega 2560 connected instead of pin 3. And now it works - I can load 1Z-013B.mzf (BASIC) and other files from the mz-sd2cmt. Nice!

Now I just need to figure out which of those .mzf files can be loaded from the monitor and which needs to be loaded from BASIC.

Re: MZ-721 power supply repair

Oops, I forgot - I've replaced C2 already. PSU is good as new now :-)

I will find out more when I find me some cables.
Got SCART cables in the mail today, and ordered some DIN 45322 connectors on eBay. So in a (hopefully) short while I will be able to test my SCART to HDMI converter.

If by SCART > HDMI, you mean RGBS > SCART > HDMI, be aware you may need a mod.
Well, it looks exactly like the one you posted a picture of here).
I will find out more when I find me some cables.

OK, I got myself one of those SCART to HDMI converters. Now I just need to find SCART connectors (or a SCART cable that I can sacrifice) and the right DIN connector for the RGB out.

Re: MZ-721 power supply repair

Yes, I have ordered new capacitors ( I ordered some for C1 as well) on eBay already. They will get here in some weeks time, hopefully. In the mean time my MZ-700 runs unfiltered :-)

Re: MZ-721 power supply repair

And C1 (the other filter capacitor) has traces of leakage around it, even if it looks ok. Maybe it has been replaced in the past:

Re: MZ-721 power supply repair

Not sure it is X2 (how do I know?) but it is X class, at least. The schematic only says 0.047 mikroFarad AC 250V. Here are some pictures:

Re: MZ-SD2CMT - correct wiring?

Temporary setback - I need to repair the MZ-721 power supply first. See this thread.
